Spring Term 2

What a lovely half term it has been!

This half term, we have enjoyed learning about the life cycles of animals and plants, observing signs of new life and the Easter Story. The highlight of this half term has been watching the chicks hatch and learning to look after them. Another highlight was definitely World Book Day 2022!

We have learned about the Easter Story and why we celebrate Easter. We learned that Easter eggs represent new life. We also learned the names for different animals in Spanish during our Lingua Sports lesson.

The children finished their half term with an Easter egg hunt, which was lots of fun. We also made Easter cards and masks.

Spring Term 1

This half term we have really enjoyed learning all about the Naughty Bus. We learned about towns and cities, transport and how transport has changed. We have also taken part in science experiments to help us learn about materials. We have investigated floating, sinking and magnetism. Our favourite thing was testing out our very own boats!

We had an excellent time learning to balance on the balance bikes. We listened carefully to the bike ability instructors and some of us were even able to ride the big bikes.

Autumn Term 2

What a busy half term! This half term we experienced our first school trip at The Brow School. We enjoyed walking to the library and visiting Father Christmas at The Brindley. Whilst at The Brindley, we watched 'Santa's Best Ever Christmas' performance. We all sang along and danced to the music.

We have all made fantastic progress this half term. We have enjoyed learning new code in phonics and exploring how numbers can be made. We have been learning lots about seasons, in particular winter. We took our art lesson outside so that we could draw the winter trees. We are all able to recognise many signs of winter!

This half term we have also learned about colour mixing and the Christmas story. We walked to St Mary's Church to take part in The Brow Christingle service. We dressed as the characters in the Nativity scene. We now know why Christmas is a very special celebration.

Autumn Term 1

What a great start the year! We have really enjoyed getting to know each other this half term.

We have been busy making friends and playing together. We have learned about celebrations including Harvest and Diwali. We really enjoyed making our Diwali candles. We read The Gingerbread Man and practised lots of counting. We also learned about World Mental Health Day and got to spend time in our new school library.

We have had many wonderful treats for earning our 20 class points. Our favourite treat was spending a morning with our buddies. We watched a film, had popcorn and got to play outside together. We are very excited for next half term!
