Miss Davies: May 2016
This week we have started to focus on our new topic using ' The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' story as our inspiration. Thanks to the very talented Miss Smith, Base 2 now have a very tall lighthouse, rowing boat and of course a lighthouse keeper to begin our display work! We are waiting with anticipation for the children's wonderful lighthouse projects to join the 3D topic display! We will also be writing some descriptions, recipes and planning how to get rid of the pesky seagulls for Mr Grinling! Base 2 have already shared and discussed the story and are very excited to learn more after the holidays!
The children have been very involved in a new topic in science, learning about plants. We watched some interesting videos about the functions of a plant and the different parts of a plant with Mrs Pascall. Base 2 have been shown the beautiful flowers/plants in the classroom and have discussed how to look after them, even appointing a dinosaur friend to help take care of the plants! We have spotted some plants sprouting and growing shoots! We have also been exploring in the woodland area and around the school grounds looking for common plants. The children found buttercups, dandelions and meadowsweet (a plant we didn't know the name of, but we did some research!) After the half term, we will be planting our plants as well as investigating what plants need to grow.
In literacy, the children in Year 1 have been finishing their interesting crocodile stories whilst the Year 2 children have written eyewitness statements to a mysterious crime that occurred in the library ( I hear Mrs Pascall has something to do with it!)
Notes: All children have new spellings to learn over the half term as well as a lighthouse project The children have also been asked to read as much as possible over the break.
I hope you all have a fabulous break! Enjoy the sunshine and I look forward to seeing you all after the half term.

Also as part of our harvest preparations it was our job to find out about how bread is made, so our learning this week was all focussed...
