If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free to write a comment in the home link book or pop into school and speak to any of us. Over the year, we will be using this webpage to post lots of useful and important information, such as home learning, useful websites and photos.
The topic this term is ‘Animal Magic!’ They will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about animals and zoos all over the world. They will explore climate in different places and learn that animals’ physical appearances reflects their habitat. They will learn the 7 continents of the world. In November, we will learn about Bonfire Night by learning about The Gunpowder Plot. In Music, they will learn songs about animals and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art, they will create a sketchbook and practise using a range of media to explore animal patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Henri Rousseau, Franz Marc and Pablo Picasso. In Design Technology, the children will explore moving books and will design, make and evaluate their own animal themed book. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.
Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read.
Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a Meadows School bookmark and a pencil!
Forest School - The children will need to bring warm clothes, waterproof coats, scarves, gloves, hats and wellies to wear in the forest. The children will be split into two groups.
