Spring Term  2nd Half

This half term we have been learning about mini beasts. The children have been observing mini beasts in the classroom and have enjoyed writing fact files about a mini beast of their choice.


We have had a great time learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar using actions to help remember the different parts of the story. The children learnt the story really well and this then helped them to write a story plan and eventually their own stories about a very hungry animal of their choice.

Here is the class telling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.


This half term the children have been learning about the Easter story and we have talked about the traditions and celebrations we enjoy with family and friends around this time.


We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and look forward to seeing you back for the summer term.
