Term 2

Welcome back!


We hope you had a lovely half term with your families and friends. This is a very exciting term with the lead up to Christmas, the children have so many nice art activities planned which we are sure they will love to show you at Christmas time. Along with this we shall be looking at the following texts: Pumpkin Soup, Amazing Grace and How the Grinch stole Christmas. In Maths we shall be continuing to work on our addition and subtraction skills.

What an amazing first week back we have all had. It was lovely to see the children again and to listen to all of their stories of what they have been doing in the half term with their families and friends.


This week we have been 'Biologists'! The children have planned and carried out an experiment to try and discover what conditions a plant needs to grow healthily in. They can't wait to observe the plants and find out if their predictions were correct. In English this week we have begun to read the story of Pumpkin Soup and the children had lots of fun retelling the story using role play masks to help them get in role! In Maths we have been using practical equipment to help us recall our number bonds to 10 and 20. Finally we have started to learn yoga in our weekly PE sessions, everyone felt very relaxed afterwards.
