Our new topic for Spring 2 is:

Green Fingers!

 

In this topic we will be having lots of fun!

In Science we will be learning about plants.  We will label the parts of a flower and the parts of a tree and name the flowers, trees in our outdoor environment.  

In Geography we will be answering a big question 'Where is your favourite place in the UK?  We will visit different places in the UK and learn about significant features.  We will research: our local area, Seilebost beach and Ben Nevis in Scotland, the Giants Causeway in Ireland, the tower bridge in London and Portmerion Village in Wales.  We will produce a map of all the areas we visited and at the end of our project we will create a travel brochure and discuss which was our favourite place and why.

In music we will be experimenting with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music.  Focus on pitch.

In P.E we will be mastering basic movements including running, jumping, developing balance and agility and co-ordination.  We will apply these skills to a range of activities.

In computing we will be understanding algorithms.  How they are implemented as programs on digital devices.  We will create and debug simple programs.  We will recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

We will continue our exciting Forest School sessions with our Forest Ranger Miss Jackson.  We will be researching the artist Andy Goldsworthy and creating our own artwork using natural materials and we will be planting our own cress seeds to take home an look after.
