Welcome back to the Summer Term

Term Five

I would like to begin by thanking you all for four lovely, enjoyable school terms. It has been so rewarding watching all of your children grow into independent, happy and confident learners.

I am looking forward to enjoying the good weather and outside learning that the summer term will hopefully bring.

This term we will be learning about animals and their habitats. We will specifically  be thinking about 'Down on the Farm'. We will be thinking about the names of farm animals, their young, their homes, the food that they eat and how farms provide for us.

During Talk for Writing we will be enjoying the following books;

Week One- What the Ladybird Heard 

Week Two- What the Ladybird Heard

Week Three- A Squash and a Squeeze

Week Four- A Squash and a Squeeze

Week Five- Little Red Hen

Week Six- Zoo Poo

To be able to experience our 'farm' topic to the full potential we will be visiting Christmas Tree Farm on Tuesday 2nd May 2017. We hope lots of you will be able to join us on our trip.

 

Christmas Tree Farm

We had a successful and enjoyable trip to Christmas Tree Farm. The weather was lovely and the children thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of the animals. I would like to personally thank all of the parents who helped with our trip and I hope that you enjoyed the trip too. The animals were all so friendly and the children were keen to meet them and feed them. The most important part of the day (lunchtime) was also enjoyed by all. After lunch we were lucky enough to have a visit from John the giant tortoise. He took a leisurely walk past the children and we were surprised to learn he is 20 years old. The children returned to school happy and enthusiastic about their visit, as well as very tired after all the excitement and walking.
