Hello I’m new here!

In this unit we looked at our local community.  We started off looking at our school and thought about what our favourite part was.  We then looked at our wider community and spoke about the facilities we have near our school and also what we would really like to have. We looked at some maps and worked in groups to discover what different symbols meant. 

What am I?

This was a science based unit, looking at ‘animals including humans’.  We looked at lots of different animals and thought about how we could group them according to their different characteristics.  We also looked at what different animals eat and used Venn diagrams to record our findings.  We wrote lots of animal descriptions and learnt to use adjectives to help enhance our writing!

What can you see in autumn?

This has been our favourite topic so far!  There has been lots of exciting things happening in autumn that we have been able to explore.  To kick start our topic we had a go at pumping carving.  We managed to scoop out all of the flesh and seeds.  We all got rather messy!  We then went on an autumn walk, where we collected lots of colourful leaves.  Back in the classroom we used these leaves to create autumn hedgehogs.
