Please make sure you read every night and record this in your reading log, we all want to become Word Millionaires and Book Quiz Superstars! This will be given out on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. We also we be doing a lot of times table practice so that we are able gain certificates and appear on Mrs Pargeter’s display. This will have a positive impact on all of our Maths learning!
Our Science topic for the first half of Spring term is 'Living Things and their Habitats,' then we look at 'Properties and Changes of Materials.'
Our over-arching topic within our Creative Curriculum is 'Queens, Kings and all important things.' We will be exploring the life and times of keys Monarchs in History and the impact they had on the life we lead today. We will analyse the Tudor dynasty and the significant changes they made to the church and laws in England, whilst also comparing the powers of a Tudor monarch with modern day monarchs. We are all so excited to go on our living history school trip to Hatfield House this term, so watch this space to see what fantastic adventures we had!
During the first half of the Spring Term, we will read and analyse the book, 'Wonder,' which will then change to 'The Spiderwick Chronicles,' after the half term holiday.
Trip to Whipsnade Zoo
In January, Moles Class were lucky enough to go to Whipsnade Zoo and take part in one of their Educational workshops. We then were able to explore all the animals around the zoo and look at their differing habitats. All of the children behaved fantastically and this was reinforced with several compliments from members of the public. I am super proud of all of them, well done Moles!
A lot of fun was had by all, here are some of the pictures from the visit.
