What a fun-packed half term. We began by writing some wonderful firework poetry and learning about the History of the Celebrations. Did you know it was Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the House of Parliament in London all those years ago, and that's why we now have 'guys' on the bonfire?!
In Literacy, our books - The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark (Y2) and Owl Babies (Y1) gave us lots of inspiration for some fantastic writing and linked to this, in Science we learnt about an Owls food chain and food webs.
Our Christmas Shows were a huge Success, the Year One children performed their Nativity and the Year 2 Children's production 'It's Christmas' was a more modern take on the Christmas Story. Every child worked hard to learn their songs, lines and dances. We even had some solo singers who shone like stars! We were so proud of all the children.
In the Spring Term we look forward to our new topic all about Toys in which we will be beginning the term with a fun-filled immersion day - a puppet show and workshop. The children will then be designing and making their own. We will be learning about Materials in Science and using algorithms to program the Bee-Bots. In Literacy we will be reading Pinocchio (Y2) and Old Bear (Y1) amongst others.
