Journeys

 Our topic this term is all about journeys. We will be looking at different transport and places that we could go on a journey too! 

 

In literacy, we have been reading the Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch and learning about lighthouses. We then created our own healthy sandwiches and really enjoyed trying them!

Weather Experts

 Our topic in Spring 2 was all about weather. We learnt about weather around the world and became weather forecasters!

 

In our topic lessons, we looked at how weather can have an impact on everyday life. The children then decided it would be fun to create their own kites for a windy day! They wrote fantastic instructions on how to make the kites. After they tested them out on the yard, they even evaluated their designs.
