GROWING AND GREEN
Our topic after Easter is 'Growing and Green' and we have been learning all about plants, flowers and growing. We will also be doing lots of planting in our outdoor area, which will hopefully bring it back to life again after a cold, wet winter!
Our key texts are 'The Tin Forest' and 'The Tiny Seed'. We have also been learning about instructional writing and have written our own instructions explaining how to plant cress and how to make a bird feeder.
For the rest of the Spring term we will be learning all about monsters! Our key text for the topic is 'The Monster Machine' by Nicola L. Robinson. We have loved spending time in our role play workshop where we have been creating all kinds of weird and wonderful monsters!
In our 'Dear Zoo' topic we learnt about different animals from around the world. We had lots of unexpected visitors during this topic, including a penguin from Antarctica, a tiger from India and a kangaroo from Australia.
Here are some of our key texts for this topic:
THE JOLLY POSTMAN
Our new topic for the rest of the Autumn term is 'The Jolly Postman' where we will be reading lots of fairy tales. The topic started with a crime scene in year 1 because the wolf had kidnapped the Jolly Postman! We had to investigate for the police and find the clues that were left behind...
ALL ABOUT ME
Our first topic of the year was 'All About Me'. We learnt about our bodies and how to keep healthy.
