To finish our ‘People who help us’ topic, we held a dressing up day. We all came dressed up as something we would like to be when we are older. We have high aspirations, with everything from doctors to vets and from racing car drivers to architects. We used our green screen to take us to our future places of work and thought about why we would be so great at our jobs! Here is a little sneak peek …
What a lot of snow we have been having! We went outside into our learning garden to make mini snowmen! They looked fantastic and we loved having fun in the snow.
To finish off our pets topic, we had a visit from the Dogs Trust. To show us how to look after a dog, they came with Winnie the Pug! She was such a lovely dog and we all enjoyed finding out about how we should be safe around dogs.
As we have been learning about pets, we have set up a vet’s surgery in our classrooms. We have been taking great care of our pets. The receptionists have done a fantastic job of sorting out our appointments, and we have been carefully describing what is the matter with our pets.
It’s snowing! Look at the snowflakes we have caught on our coats, in our hair and on our frozen card.
We have been learning about pets. Look at our amazing split pin pets!
After our Christmas holiday we spent time sharing our news with our friends.
We really enjoyed sharing stories with Year 5 and 6.
On Bonfire Night we used the laptops to make bonfire pictures. We used 2publish+ to fill our page and then use a splatter tool to make firework shapes.
Our tortoise is preparing to hibernate and we have been watching him really carefully. Whilst we were thinking about animal homes, we went outside to make new homes for some animals. We used natural materials and practiced our knot tying skills.
What a busy first term we have had! Have a look at what we have been up to!
We have been looking at people who help us this term.
The children have loved having visits from the police and we look forward to visiting the fire station.
We have been looking at 3D shapes and time this half term.

Spring 2 – Things that swim!
Thank you for all your homework, you have worked hard over the holidays and we have really enjoyed hearing about the animals you have researched!
Here is what we have been learning the last couple of weeks:
Leopard Seals – We have been out onto the playground to measure how big a leopard seal is.
Can you believe they can grow up to 3 1/2 meters long!
Emperor penguins – We pretended we were a daddy penguin and tried to waddle around making sure our ‘chick’ didn’t fall into the snow! It was harder than we thought.
We have taken our maths outside this week – we are working hard to complete independent and paired maths problems within the teen numbers.
We have been working hard on our independent writing, reading and our handwriting.
World Book Day
There were some fantastic costumes and we enjoyed hearing all about the children’s favourite books!
