Crazy Climates


During term two our learning will be based around our topic Crazy Climate. We will be learning about hot and cold climates and animals that live in those climates. Our English will also be linked to our topic. Our writing focus will be around: Autumn Poems, Snow Queen, My Friend Whale. We will write an Autumn Poem, character descriptions, sequenced the stories, looked at different types of characters (good/ evil), created our own characters and write an information text.

Ourselves and Our Pets


This first half term our learning was based around All About Me. We enjoyed reading Giraffes Can’t Dance, Peace at Last, Aliens Love Underpants. We wrote character descriptions and sequenced stories. In science, we learnt about our body and senses. We can name and identify different body parts and link our senses to a body part.

We began by learning about all about ourselves and how to stay healthy. We explored our senses our senses and had lots of fun using our senses for different activities.



In science we have been learning about our senses. For taste we completed an experiment where we got to taste 3 different things (honey, popcorn and lemon) and decide if they were sweet, sour or salty.



We have been learning about the season and how each season is different. We went out in to the playground to look for the signs of autumn.


We were looking for:

  • Colourful leaves
  • Conkers/ horse chestnuts 
  • Pinecones
  • Trees with less leaves in them

Natural Collage's


As part of our topic we looked at the signs of autumn. Then we used some of the natural materials found in autumn to create natural collages. We loved creating these collages.



This term in computing our focus has been on knowing how to log in and navigate around a computer, developing mouse skills, learning how to drag, drop, click and control a cursor to create works of art inspired by Kandinsky and self-portraits.
