NSPCC TALK PANTS
In PSHE this week we have introduced the NSPCC Talk Pants message.
Here is the link if you would like to talk with your child about this important message at home.
Beans and Bulbs!
Back in September we planted some bean seeds and some daffodil bulbs. We watched our bean seeds germinate and saw the shoot and root emerge after the seed had swelled and cracked. We planted our seedlings out in our planter and now they have flowered. We are waiting for the beans to grow. We plan to make broad bean humous to taste.
Our bulbs have produced a glorious spring display. Have a look here.
We went in search of dates and facts about Christopher Columbus in the wildlife area. Once we had read the facts we put together a time line for the key dates in his life. Take a look at some of our timelines below.
We found out which plants and animals live in the ocean. We discovered how they are suited to this environment.
The Easter Story
For R.E. we listened to the Easter Story and found out which parts of the story were happy and which parts were sad. As part of our learning we made an Easter garden plate. Take a look at some of our work below.
As part of our Statistics Maths topic we have been collecting data on a tally chart and presenting the information on a block graph. We used natural materials to fill our block graph.
As part of our learning about the Census we discovered how important the data from the Census is for the NHS. We remembered how we drew rainbows during the first lockdown and decided to challenge ourselves to make a rainbow out of natural materials that we found in our Wildlife Area. Have a look at our slideshow to see how brilliantly they turned out.
If your child is self-isolating due to Covid-19, please find work uploaded to Google Classroom for them to complete at home.

Supporting Learning at Home
Children are able to exchange their reading books every day and should try and read at home every evening. Spellings and Maths Home Learning will be sent home on a Friday. The children should stick them in their home learning book which is left at home. The activities should be completed at some time during the week. Please refer to the following guides for how to support your child with their reading and spellings.
