    Term One

    Our focus this term has been on weather, particularly looking at storms. The text being used as the stimulus for our topic work is the story ‘The Storm Whale` by Benji Davies. The classes have been thoroughly engaged in the text and have enjoyed using drama and Pie Corbett techniques to imagine and describe the emotions of characters and even creating our own new ones.

    As the term continues we will carry on exploring non-fiction texts about weird and wonderful weather. We will look at seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom, learn what the 4 countries are and think about the different weather we get across the UK.  

    In science we will be exploring living things and their habitats. The children will sort items into three categories: living, no longer alive and have never been alive. We will visit the different environment areas in school and also the pond to see the living things that can be discovered.
