Firstly welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely summer and enjoyed the amazing sunshine. This term our topic is Travel and Transport and I hope the children enjoy and are enthused by the learning ahead. Below is a copy of the Autumn term letter and curriculum which was also emailed to you. As the term progresses, I will update this page so please do keep returning to take a look. I am very much looking forward to getting to know your children and you in the coming weeks.
We have had great fun in Science week. Not only have the children enjoyed all the experiments, but there has been some excellent thinking too. They have been doing lots of predicting, problem solving and deciding what they would do differently when things have not quite gone to plan, plus applying their scientific knowledge. There has also been lots of team work, cooperation and patience needed. Robins class is full of budding future scientists!
In order to support our learning on Under the Sea, we went to the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth. The children were enthusiastic, interested and beautifully behaved. We had a brilliant time exploring all the exhibits and using our knowledge. Take a look at the pictures below.
What a great day we have had today. This morning, in groups, we made our own salt dough which we used to cut out the 7 continents, using templates. Once they have dried, we hope to turn them into mobiles - watch this space!
This afternoon, in order to support our Science learning, we did some practical activities sorting sea creatures using our own criteria. We also did some story telling and decorated the playground with sea creatures too. We had lots of fun. Take a look at the pictures below.
