Spring Term 2015

This half term we will continue with our topic...

Mini Zoo


Last half term the children learned all about jungle animals. This term we will focus on farm animals and animals that can be pets.
Non-fiction books will be used to help us find out more about animals. We will develop our drawing and painting skills using a range of art materials to draw and paint animals from observation and memory. We will also learn about why animals are important to us and how we care for them.  

Monday 9th March - Friday 13th March

This week we prepared for Mother's Day. We learned how to zoom in and out using the camera on the Ipads and then used them to take a photograph of a friend. We printed the pictures and glued them onto the front of our Mother's Day card. Then we very carefully used our fingers to create pictures and patterns on the front. 
We also joined in with raising money for Red Nose Day by coming to school with funny faces! We had lots of fun making Red Nose Day Delights using layers of digestive biscuits, jam, custard and cream with a glacier cherry on top. We also designed and painted our own giant red noses!

Monday 2nd March - Friday 6th March

We had our Eisteddfod this week. We came to school dressed in traditional welsh costumes and looked fantastic! We worked really hard to practice a traditional welsh folk dance and performed it brilliantly for the rest of the school to see.
We have also been reading and retelling the story 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea'. We did lots of different activities about the story and then we used it to help us write our own story called 'The Dragon Who Came to School'.
In maths we also started to learn to tell the time.

We have had a very busy week this week! It's been 'Welsh Culture Week'. We have been preparing all our competitions both at home and in school. We had a handwriting competition where we had to write a St David's Day poem in our neatest handwriting. We also had another competition to design a St David's Day card. We thought hard about all the different Welsh symbols and traditions to help us. We built castles out of various construction materials and we made dragons out of play dough!
We also had a visit from a Fireman on Tuesday. He told us a story and then explained all about how to stay safe. He also let us try on his uniform. It was a little bit big for us but we had great fun trying it on!

Monday 19th January - Friday 24th January

During this week we have been using the ipads and making our own welsh books on the ipads in pairs, which was great fun! We have also learnt a lot about different types of animals and used a Venn diagram to sort them.

We worked very hard with our maths investigation and went bird watching outside!

Monday 12th January - Friday 16th January

This week we have been reading the story about Elmer, we were lucky enough to get a letter from Emler friends the elephants asking us to write a poem for Elmers birthday. We enjoyed writing our poems and used lots of describing words.

We have also been looking into different types of jungle animals and what features they have to help them live in the jungle. We wrote animal riddles, and had to guess what animals our friends were describing.
