Term 2

Term 2 has been fun and exciting! We have been learning all about African animals and have enjoyed finding out lots of facts about them – ask us if we can tell you any!


We have been enjoying writing stories this term based on our story ‘The Selfish Crocodile’ and writing our own information texts too!

We really enjoyed creating our own printing tiles and using our prints to weave and make a pattern.

In DT, we made our very own African Safari moving pictures using a sliding lever, a pop-up or a pivot.


We were very lucky to have Noah’s Ark visiting us where we met a tortoise, a snake, a cockroach and a giant snail!

Term 1

We have had a wonderful start to the year in 1LA. This term, we loved reading our story Beegu after finding the book at her crash site in the school grounds. We learnt to retell the story using actions and created a new character. We have shared lots of stories together and the children have enjoyed talking about our author of the term- Kes Gray!

In English, we also enjoyed writing our own instructions for how to decorate a biscuit. First we had to do it ourselves (and eat it, of course).

We have also had some super visitors this term. Redland Education Centre visited us as part of our learning in RE. They showed us what a baptism would be like and we talked about the meaning of each of our names. We also had a lovely visit from a guide dog as we have been learning about the senses in Science. I wonder what else this year will have in store…
