This term our topic is called 'Jambo! Africa.' and we will be making comparisons between Herne Bay and Africa.
In Literacy we will look at stories from other cultures including 'Handa's Surprise' and we will also write riddles about African animals.
In maths we will revisit our learning on addition and subtraction before moving onto division, fractions and time.
The topic will be further explored in the afternoons. We will learn about different African fruits and use them to make a fruit salad and some art in the style of Arcimboldo. We will learn about Christopher Columbus as we were unable to fit that it last term. In science we will be working scientifically to carry out some experiments exploring the properties of materials and look at the seasonal changes of Spring.
This term we will continue our Forest School sessions led by Miss Norman. Bunnies will complete their last 2 sessions and Otters will start theirs, where they will use 'The Meadow' to learn life skills that cannot be taught so easily in the classroom. There is more information in the letter that got sent out in Term 2 which is in the letter page of the website.
Moles start their swimming lessons this term on Monday's. Bunnies and Otters will have their extra P.E. lesson on a Monday afternoon.
The children will still have their weekly P.E. lessons with Mr Sargeant, R.E. with Mrs Powell and Computing with Miss Scott.
