In Maths we will be re-visiting topics such as addition, tally chart, estimation, 3d shapes and money.


Our topic is ‘How does your garden grow’ and we will be looking at the life cycle of a flower and a plant. We will be doing art crafts linked to the garden and growing our own cress, beans and sunflowers. We will be experimenting by growing beans in different areas such as in the sunlight and in the dark to see where they grow best.

Later in the summer we are going to be visiting Leighton Buzzard Splash Park.

Spring 1

This half term Silver class will be studying the Literacy book Paddington by Michael Bond Illustrated by R.W.Alley.,204,203,200_.jpgThe classic story of a much-loved bear – Paddington! Join Paddington and the Browns as they start their adventures at Paddington Station and relive their treasured story in this stylish book and CD set.


Paddington Bear first met the Brown family at a railway station – Paddington station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade; a suitcase and a label reading ‘Please look after this bear’. Without further ado, Mr and Mrs Brown promptly welcomed the adventurous bear into their family, and in honour of their meeting place they named him Paddington.


The Browns soon discover that Paddington is a most unusual bear. Ordinary things – like having a bath – become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is around.


We will doing lots of writing, reading, speaking and listening, ICT and cookery activities linked to this story.  We will also look at Paddington at the Palace to link to our Topic Town and Country.


During this Topic we will be looking at different houses and things that you are likely to see in the Town and the Country.  We have trips planned to Dunstable town, Warden Hills, Pets at Home and a trip on the train to Harpenden.


In Maths we will be working on Number and revisiting Estimation, Tally charts and Addition.  We will be working on Money during snack time by having a mini tuck shop.

A beautiful and classic picture book from Eric Carle - The Very Busy Spider.

Early one morning a little spider begins to spin her web on a fence post. In this multi-sensory book, children can feel the pictures as well as see them, while they hear or read the easy rhythmic text.Alongside the visual excitement of Eric Carle's vibrant collages of familiar animals is the tactile experience of feeling the spider's web as it grows from a simple line into a complex and beautiful creation -a perfect story for reading aloud and sharing.


Topic this half term is ‘ What a load of junk’  and we will be  looking at metal, plastic, glass, recycling of junk and improving an area in the school environment.
