Our theme this term is ‘What a Wonderful World’ and the children are very excited to be learning about where we live and comparing our local area to different places in the world. In Geography the children will also be using maps and atlases to identify and name the continents and oceans. They will find out about hot and cold places and learn to identify the North Pole, South Pole and Equator on a globe.
The children have shared their ideas about what is living and non-living and had a great time exploring the school grounds. In Science they will also be looking at different habitats and finding out about life cycles. They will learn about the basic needs of living things and learn to classify animals into different groups. We are all enjoying having Pickle (the tortoise) in our classroom this term and finding out about what he needs and how to look after him.
We are also enjoying taking part in Forest School this term. It is great to see the children exploring, solving problems and finding out about living and non-living things.
It is going to be a very busy term. Watch this space to see how we all get on exploring our wonderful world!
