Spring 2

We thoroughly enjoyed out 'We All Go Travelling By' topic last half term.  Highlights included our train trip to Harpenden (accidentally sitting in First Class - whoops!), our airport role play -(where some of the children really believed they were going on holiday!) and our end of term celebration which was simply fantastic - all of the children enjoyed showing off their work and it was a pleasure to see so many parents joining us.

This half term our topic is 'Rule Britannia'.  We will be looking at the four countries that make up the United Kingdom - England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland over the next four weeks.  We will be basing our cookery on traditional dishes from each of these countries, looking at their flags, national anthems, national emblems and much more!
In literacy we will be reading a lovely story that Josie has written for us, it is called 'My Week' and alongside learning about the days of the week and talking about what we do during the week, it also includes traditionally British food which we may make too!
As part of the Equals curriculum we will also be taking a look at life in Victorian England.  We are lucky enough that some of us will be visiting the Victorian Museum in Hitchin to experience a Victorian school room and also the museum at Wardown Park to look at different Victorian toys.





Spring 1


This half term our topic is 'We all go travelling by'.  We will hopefully be going on a few different trips - travelling on a train, bus and narrow boat!  We will be looking at and learning about Air, Rail, Road and Water travel.


In Literacy we will be reading two main books - 'The Journey Home From Grandpa's' and 'Davy Ducks Scary Journey'.


In Cookery we are cooking dishes that we might find in our local community.
In ICT we are going to be learning how to make a book on 'Clicker 6' and some of us are going to try and make a power point!
We hope to have a fantastic finish to our topic work this term by inviting parents and members of the local community in to school to celebrate our achievements this term.
