What have we been learning?


Country Trust:

This term we have been joined by Country Trust who have been teaching the Meerkat’s children how to cook different meals and the class have also tried new food!


This week we have been learning more about money and how to convert pounds and pence. We soon will look at statistics, how to measure length and fractions before the Easter break.


As part of our literacy lessons we have been learning how to write a descriptive text of a volcano erupting, an explanation text of how fossils are created and also creating our own medicine in the style of George’s Marvellous Medicine.


This unit children will be making a paper mache volcano which will be painted and erupted before half term using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.


This half term we are learning all about properties of different rocks and how fossils are created.


Children are learning how to perform a piece of music that incorporated different dynamics and pitch. Incorporating high and low sounds, clashing sounds and calm and scary parts.
