Wonderful Water

This term we are going to be investigating 'Wonderful Water!'

We will be finding out how we use water to keep clean and for eating and drinking. Later in the term we will be going on a boat and travelling on water. We will also be looking at creatures that live under the water and visiting the beach.

Tell Me a Story

In the Spring Term we looked at lots of different Traditional Tales. 

We read the Three Billy Goats Gruff and investigated bridges and tasted goat's milk and cheese.

We read Frozen and made ice castles and found out how to make ice cream. We had to rescue some penguins that Elsa had accidentally frozen.

We read Goldilocks and the three Bears and tasted porridge and made a graph of the one we like the best. We also investigated small, medium and large.

Our learning for Autumn Term was "Tasty!" We learned all about food and explored it through different stories.

We started off by reading The Little Red Hen and finding all about grinding wheat and making bread.

Our next story was The Hungry Caterpillar, we made caterpillars from playdough, punched leaves, made cupcakes and made butterfly feeders with Mr Heffernan in the Secret Garden.
