Class Teacher: Miss Howells
Learning Support Assistant : Mrs Holcombe
Spring Term 2019
Our topic this term is Pop Up - This topic is all about Fairy Tales
The children will be looking at a range of different Fairy Tales and learning all about how each story has a beginning, a middle and an ending. They will look at characters which ones are nice and which ones are scary. They will also explore speech bubbles by talking like a giant, or a witch or a king or queen.
Through the different stories we will also be exploring growing plants (a magic beanstalk), making houses out of sweets, creating invitations for a ball and building castles and towers out of construction.
This is a wonderful, colourful topic with an emphasis on reading, writing and telling stories. I am sure that you have a favourite and perhaps you can tell it to your children.
Please note our PE day is Tuesday and the children will need their PE kit in school.
Our Forest School day is Friday and the children will need a pair of wellies which they can leave in school as we like to go exploring on other days as well!
Inside your Learning Log you will find a menu of different activities that you can do with your child over the half term. There are quite a few things to do and you need to choose five. You can do one a week if you wish to the end of term. We do not need the Learning Logs back until Wednesday 20th February
You can bring them in as you have completed a task each week if you would prefer
Many thanks - we hope you enjoy the Spring tasks.
Wow our last week of the first half term. The children have worked so hard and we have been finding many Autumn treasures throughout the term. We had a lovely trip to the park with some beautiful Autumn sunshine to help us find conkers, acorns and even a squirrel searching for food for the Winter.
We will be finishing off this section of the term next week by :
Making leaf plaques
Finishing our Autumn pictures in the style of Gustav Klimt
and practising our Welsh learning how to say the weather. You can ask your child......
Ask Sut mae'r tywydd? Answer Mae hi'n heulog- it is sunny
Mae hi'n bwrw glaw - it is raining
Mae hi'n wyntog - it is windy
Mae hi'n oer- it is cold
Mae hi'n braf- it is fine
Mae hi'n gymylog - it is cloudy
Have a look at the story link underneath!
This week we will be moving onto the next section of our Autumn Treasure Box by looking at Owls. We will be reading "Wow, said the Owl" and talking about night time and day time especially in relation to animals. We will also be making some shadow puppets and be making textured brown owls with collage materials. We will post some of our Owls here once we have made them!
If you haven't brought some wellies for Forest School please can you bring them in as it is getting muddy and wet as we move into Autumn.
