Term 2

We have been continuing our topic about India.

In RE, made paper lanterns for Diwali, and thought about things that make us feel ‘full of light’. We added these to the flames.

We made clay Diva lamps in Art – we were really good at squashing and squeezing! Then we decorated them with beautiful patterns.

In Maths, we have started multiplication. We have been working on equal groups and repeated addition so far.

In Computing, we have been learning about programming using the EARL robot.

Term 1

We have really been enjoying our India topic!

In Geography, we have been finding out about the climate there. We couldn’t believe how much rain they have during monsoon season! We also learned about the different landscapes, habitats and animals that live there. In English, we focused on the story of Augustus and his Smile, and had a go at writing our own versions with different Indian animals. We also learned lots about red pandas.

In Science, we have been learning about different materials and their properties. We looked at how fabrics are traditionally dyed in India, and we conducted an experiment using different types of natural dyes, such as pomegranates and turmeric.

In Art, we have been colour mixing and painting. This will lead up to us creating our own Rangoli art.

In RE, we have been looking at different communities and Bible stories.
