Lots of our work this term has revolved around animals. In our English lessons we have been working around two different books, 'The Storm Whale' about a lonely boy who discovers a beached baby whale and 'Claude' a very funny book about a little dog who lives in Paris.
Our animal theme continued in our Safari topic where we learnt all about the animals, landscapes and people who live in Kenya and in our science topic all about habitats. We have looked at our local urban habitats and habitats around the world such as polar, desert and rainforest. We have studied how animals have adapted to suit their habitats.
We tackled two tricky maths topics this term: fractions and time. We needed lots of practise at telling the time on analogue clocks because we are so used to reading digital clocks! For R.E. this term we have learnt about the Easter Story and have created a timeline of the Easter events.
What else has happened this term?
We have enjoyed the music teacher visiting us and teaching us how to use instruments and the P.E. teacher visiting to help us with our co-ordination and skills.
The whole school enjoyed a trip to Chatham Library where we made bookmarks, went on a library hunt and listened to a very funny story about a dog who likes to dance.
We all enjoyed celebrating World Book Day. Our class read 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' and then made our own pancakes...we are great at tossing them! We also visited Reception class where we listened to the story, 'Superworm' and made our own worms, went on a worm hunt and worked out in Worm Gym. Finally, we visited year 1 and listened to the story, 'We're going on a Bear Hunt!' and then went all over the school trying to find the bear.
