Our launch activity is a trip to a local small holding to visit the pregnant sheep, and hopefully to see the newborn lambs later in the term. To help us learn more we will be incubating and hatching our own chicks and continuing to observe our stick insects.
On 6th March we are going to Potteric Carr for a day of investigation and exploration in the wild! This will be followed up by various projects around our school grounds - watch this space!
This month is LGBT month and in English we will be reading "and tango makes three" by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell. We will learn to write narrative based on all you need is love to make a family . Our art lessons will also centre around this book and we will be learning various drawing and water-colour techniques.
In R.E. we will look at the Christian story of salvation leading up to Easter, our class will be leading the Easter service in church, we hope you can join us for that.
February is also the month we discover more about the Chinese New Year and we shall have some exciting activities to do.
In March we will celebrate Commonwealth Day and our chosen country is New Zealand so in P.E. we will be learning the Haka!
February 22nd will be our first swimming lesson and these will continue until the end of this school year.
So it looks like it's going to be a very busy half term but I'm looking forward to it and hope you enjoy hearing all about it
