Spring Term

Our class topic this half term is 'Winter'.

The children will be learning about the season of winter and

the changes that occur at this time of year.  They will be finding out about animals that hibernate during the winter and how animals stay warm.  They will look at globes, atlases and the internet to find out about animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctica.  They will carry out science experiments that encourage the children to predict what will happen and why and then to talk about their findings. And finally, they will create winter themed art work through drawing, painting, paper sculpting and sewing.


Please read the topic newsletter to see in greater detail what the children will be learning about through each mini-topic.
