Spring Term 


Happy New Year!

Our new term begins with our Georgraphy topic. We are exploring The Gambia and how it contrasts with the United Kingdom. The children will be writing postcards from The Gambia and learning all about what it would be like to live there. 


We are currently reading a wonderful book called 'Handa's Surprise' which we are exploring alongside learning about The Gambia. Handa's Surprise is set in Africa. Handa collects different varieties of delicious fruit in her basket to take to her friend Akeyo. On her journey, she is unaware that different animals are eating the fruit out of her basket. A goat then runs into a tangerine tree as Handa is walking by, so all the tangerines fall into Handa's empty basket. When she arrives at Akeyo's home, she is surprised to see a basket full of tangerines. The children have been enjoying acting the story out. 


This term, we will be transforming ourselves into artists and creating our own self portraits. We will also be looking at the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy.


We have started the year by looking at place value in Maths. Using money, the children have identified the tens and ones in teen numbers. We wil be moving on from this as we focus upon more number work, understanding ordinal numbers. 



We do have something very exciting arriving in Year One in March. Keep your eyes peeled! 

Here is something to give you a clue...
