Squirrel Class


Spring Term 2 in Squirrels

This term our topic has been ‘Going on a Journey.’ We have read the books ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’ and ‘Six Dinner Sid.’ We spoke a lot about different ways we can travel and designed our own exciting journeys, creating a destination and some fun activities we could do there. The children had some wonderful ideas and we used our Talk4Writing story maps to create our own adventures. We also spent lots of time thinking about counting accurately, ordering numbers, addition and subtraction! It has been very busy in our maths lessons and we have used lots of resources to help with different methods used. We started to think carefully about what Sid does during his journey and the food he liked to eat! Our home learning packs have continued to help us think about how to look after pets and I hope some of you can think about your own pet stories and create some wonderful journeys for them to go on! During RE we have been talking a lot about the Easter story and what is important to Christians at this time, thinking lots about hope and forgiveness. It has been a very interesting term with lots of challenges to overcome; the children have been fantastic through it all! On our return to school we will be thinking about our new topic, ‘Kingdoms and Castles.’ We look forward to plenty more learning and exciting adventures when we see you next!
