This term we have been learning about all the things that make us unique. Our topic is based around the messages in the book, ‘Only One You’ by Linda Kranz. We have been learning how to be a good friend and how to work in a team.

Term 2 - Fantastic Festivals

This term we have been learning about ‘Fantastic Festivals’ and other special celebrations, such as birthdays. We began by learning about Bonfire Night. In Maths we learnt to share equally, making sure everyone had the same number of sparklers. We also learnt about 2D shapes as we created firework rocket pictures.

We then learnt about Thanksgiving. The children learnt the story of Thanksgiving and wrote notes of thanks to special people in their lives.

Lastly, we learnt about Christmas. The children worked incredibly hard to learn all the songs and actions for our Christmas play, ‘A King is Born’. In class, they acted out the Nativity story using small world toys. In craft we created our own mini Christmas trees, using a range of resources and approaches. What fun! Merry Christmas everyone!

Our Maths book this term is 'The Hundred Decker Bus' by Mike Smith. The driver of the bus takes his passengers on an adventure, adding another level to the bus each time more passengers get on. One level even has a swimming pool! We will be using addition and subtraction to calculate how many people are on the bus.

Our role play area this term is a Travel Agents. We will be learning about money, distance and time as we book our holidays. Where would you like to go? We have lots of special offers!
