Animals, including humans
In science we have been learning what an animal is. We also learnt to classify them as mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish. We enjoyed a visit from Pet Encounters to show us some real animals so we could look for their features. We also explored humans senses.
We enjoyed our visit from Simon who told us lots of interesting things about Judaism.
🌳 Forest School 🌲
In spring term we got to revisit Forest School again. We explored our senses and took part in the big bird watch as well as climbing, hanging, swinging, creating, building, investigating, observing, communicating, persevering and having fun!
In computing we have been learning how to collect and represent data. We went on to create pictograms of monthly weather.
Every month we head out and observe what has changed around school. In January it was very cold.
We were very excited to visit the Carniege theatre to watch Jack and the Beanstalk.
🇬🇧 The United Kingdom 🇬🇧
In geography we took a virtual trip to all the countries that make up the United Kingdom.
It was great fun!
How Day Becomes Night
We have been learning about day and night. We used torches for the sun and balls to represent the Earth . In pairs we demonstrated how the Earth rotates on its axis to face the sun during the day and away from the sun at night.
