Tadpole Watch

 We have been keeping a close eye on our tadpoles in class, when we first brought them in from the school pond the water was murky and a little bit smelly. Now the water has cleared and we can see several tadpoles swimming around. We have been using our underwater viewing scope to keep an eye out for any changes. Some of us think we can see little legs starting to grow. What can you see?

Our froglets have now become more active in the tank, jumping around on the rocks. On the Friday before half term a few of us went down with Mrs Maddocks and Miss Salsano to release the frogs back into the school pond. They hopped happily away as we thanked them for showing us the life cycle of a frog.


Summer Term Topic

Growing and changing




This half term we will be looking at the changes happening around us.  We will be researching the lifecycles of various living creatures and flowers.  In computing we will be looking at different types of animals and grouping them.  We will  use Word and PowerPoint to present our work.  Use the link below to help you research more at home:








Image result for flowers




We will be getting our hands dirty this term!  We will be planting seeds and watching them grow.  Click on the link below to find out more about helping plants grow.





We will also be studying them as artists through observation and looking at the work of Vincent Van Gogh.

 What can you find out about Vincent Van Gogh?





 We have been learning the story of the Udala Tree.  We listened to the story and joined in.  We made a class story tree and plooted the story onto it.  Can you tell the story to an adult? 






We will be thinking about number and how we can use both mental maths and jottings to help us solve problems.  We will look at multiplication and division of number.  Try the links below!

Function Wheel - can you use your mental maths to round up to the next ten?




Grouping - can you divide  the different objects by grouping them?



Multiplication - can you count in twos and tens?


Calculation balance - can you use your number bonds to 10 to balance the scales?


What about your number bonds to 20?



Show and Tell


Show and Tell os every Thursday.  The children can bring in any topic based work they have done or any certificates/medals they have been awarded outside school.



 PE Kits


Could all Pe kits be named please as it makes it much easier for any lost items to be returned.

Thank you.


Water Bottles

 As the weather is set to warm up, don't forget to bring in a water bottle and to take it home every Friday.
