Squirrel Class

Autumn 2nd

This half term our topic is Poles Apart. We have been looking at the Artic and Antarctic and focusing on the weather and animals that live there. In Literacy we have been reading “Polar Bear, Polar Bear What do you hear?” And “Penguins Big Adventure.” We have been using our Talk4Writing skills to create story maps and our own adventures! We also looked at non fiction texts and studied penguins. In Maths we have been grouping objects and matching the correct numeral. We have also practised finding one more and one less from a given number, making number lines and practising number formation within 5. Our creative lessons have been really exciting, we made our own snowflakes, penguin footprints and designed our own artic scene. During RE we have been looking closely at the Nativity story and talking about the importance of Jesus’ birth at Christmas time. We also celebrated Children in Need, Anti-Bullying week and Diwali. What a fun filled time we’ve had!
