Summer 1: What's growing on the farm?

In  the first week of the Summer term  we will  become scientists- observing and recording seasonal change, As artists we will create still life drawings using  a range of media. As readers and writers we will  research and write to inform; naming and labelling parts of plants and flowers.

In  weeks 2 and 3 we will  play host to some very 'egg-citing' visitors . These visitors will lead us to explore animals, their young and how to care for them.  We will use our design technology skills to make hand  puppets  and write instructions.  We will  study the work of  Natsumi Tomita, working collaboratively to create animal based  junk model sculptures.

In weeks 4 and 5 we will explore  animal homes and their natural habits before writing  non chronological reports. We will  explore sculpture further using modelling materials and clay as an alternative to junk modelling.

Finally,  as the half term draws to a close we will explore life cycles of different creatures. We will combine all our skills to create information posters. What a busy half term we have ahead of us.


Remember, you can share your child's 'out of school' experiences with us via our class email address. We really do appreciate these contributions; it is wonderful to see

your children proudly sharing these memories/achievements with their friends and teachers.


Join us on another fabulous half term of learning fun.

Please remember to date and sign your child's reading record each time you read together. Pupils who complete three reads are awarded a Track It point. Additional reads score one more Track It point.
