Autumn 1

In Science, we have been looking at animal groups. We identified a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. We named a variety of animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We labelled and named basic parts of the human body and associated parts of the body with each sense. 

 

We also looked at different animal 'poo' (Weetabix) to look for plants/bones to help identify Herbivores, Omnivores and Carnivores.

We labelled parts of the body and learned about our five senses.

In Design and Technology, we looked at free standing structures and made one of our own. We made it as stable by thinking about its base and using different materials. We wanted it to be as strong as possible. We looked at the structures in our playground and then made a shelter or a bench. 

Autumn 2

In English, we have been reading 'Claude in the City'. In Geography, we looked at the countries of the U.K. and their cities.  

 

We 'visited' Wales. The capital city is Cardiff. There are lots of castles in Wales. The highest mountain is Snowdon. There is a town with a really long name! Here are some of our postcards:

We 'visited' Northern Ireland. The capital city is Belfast. We saw the Giant's Causeway and read about the legend.

We 'visited' places in England. In Cornwall, we saw beautiful beaches and harbours. We saw the Eden Project which is a popular tourist attraction. In the Lake District, we saw beautiful landscapes. The highest mountain in England is called Scafell Pike. The capital city of England is London. In London, we saw popular tourist attractions like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye.

We 'visited' Scotland. Mrs Lewis dressed up in a kilt. We ate shortbread and designed our own tartan. We listen to bagpipes. We saw Edinburgh Castle and had a look in the lake for the monster at Loch Ness (we couldn't see one!)

Spring 1

 

We have been reading a story called '10 things I can do to help my world'. We made posters explaining why it is important to protect the environment. We made bird feeders and hung them on the tree. 

Science- We carried out an investigation to see which material was waterproof so we could design an umbrella for Gingerbread man.
