This term we have been inspired by the snow and have been learning all about the North and South Poles. We have been championing British Values and have learnt all about Captain Robert Scott's expedition to Antartica.

We are continuing to speed read our Phase 5 Phonemes and are working our socks off to learn our Year 1 and 2 Common Exception words. We have been learning about the features of narratie writing and have become little authors ourselves!

We have been very busy in Forest School. We have been pretending to be Captain Scott by building dens and structures that would withstand the chilly conditions. We have also been helping our local wildlife by creating bird feeders and homes.  

We are very excited to design our very own 3D polar animal models. We have invited our families into school to help us with the junk modelling. We are going to photograph our finished models and share ways in which we could improve it next time!

In Maths we are learning our times tables, how to partition numbers and how to weigh, measure and create our own 3D shapes. 

We are working very hard at home by reading four times a week to earn a smelly sticker! We are also trying our best with our homework tasks too. If you want to enjoy some of the activities we are doing at school, click the links below.

After half term, we are going to be visiting Cadbury's World to support our new topic, showcasing our talents in our class assembly and learning how to Bhangra dance with a professional coach. Thank you to our wonderful families for your excellent support.
