Summer Term 2 - Paws, Claws and Whiskers
Big cats, small rats, tiny fleas and buzzing bees!
This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting an animal expert will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. Famous animal fables will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading them aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage. Designing a zoo is even on the agenda!
Summer Term 1 - Scented Garden
Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden.
This half term, we’ll find out how to look after plants, ask the experts questions (Mrs Annall & Mrs Huckle) and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write an information book about plants, follow instructions, enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write stories of our own. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own ‘planting and growing’ action rhyme. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages.
At the end of our project, we will have become plant experts!
Help your child prepare for their project
Gardens are so special and are an excellent place to visit together. Why not take close-up photographs of flowers and use a plant identification app or spotting guide to find the name of each plant? You could also buy some wild flower seeds and watch them grow. Alternatively, bake recipes containing fragrant herbs and spices! Cheese and chive scones, cinnamon biscuits and lavender cake are all delicious!

Welcome to the Robin's Class
Welcome to you all - I will be your class teacher (Mr Low) and I am supported in class by Mrs Huckle. I will be working very closely with Mrs Ashton (Goldfinch Class Teacher) in order to deliver a broad and exciting curriculum, from EYFS through to Year 2.
This school year will look very different to the way we are used to doing things - with new safety measures in place. Our main priority is to help the children settle in and feel comfortable with the new safety routines we have in place.
Please keep checking Tapestry for any class updates and to see what your child is doing in school. We would really like you to share any relevant activities that you and your child do at home e.g. baking, counting, mark making etc. We would love to see all of your amazing WOW moments!
Please make sure your child brings a labelled water bottle to school everyday. This can be filled up as needed.
Your child will now be sent home with one reading book and this will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. However, if the home school diary shows that your child has not read at home, the book may not be changed. Please record how many times you read with your child. The school recommends that a child reads to/with at least 5 times a week. If your child reads 5 times a week they will receive a reward point for each read. When they have enough points they will be given their certificate in our Celebration Assembly and also be able to place their own bookworm on the special Bookworm notice board.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
