Current Topic (Summer):

Splendid Skies

Let’s put on our coats, pop up our brollies and investigate the weather. This half term, we’ll take a walk outdoors to find out about different types of weather and to look for signs of the seasons. We’ll study TV weather reports, make weather symbols and learn about the life and work of Sir Francis Beaufort. Creative opportunities will allow us to explore weather in works of art, make season trees and create seasonal music! We’ll compose weather poems and write postcards describing the weather in different places. Our thinking skills will come in handy when we experiment with thermometers, investigate the effects of the Sun and compare weather around the world. We will enjoy creating our own version of One Year with Kipper and reading and listening to The Story Orchestra- Four Seasons In.


Previous topic (Spring): 

Bright Lights, Big City

Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London! This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city.
