KS1 have settled back in to our learning so well after the Christmas break.
We have loved our work in English where we wrote a class thank you letter to our well-being bear, Wilbur. Unfortunately, the letter flew out of the window and was blown all around school so we wrote about our adventures searching for his lost letter!
In RE we have been deepening our thinking about the creation story in. We depicted the story through art and thought carefully about the wonders of creation and how it can calm us.
In Science, we have been exploring the four seasons and how the weather changes through the seasons in the UK. We became weather forecasters for the afternoon and had fun working together and learning about weather and weather symbols. We have also thought about seasons in PE where we listened to parts of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and created our own dance moves to reflect the different seasons.
In Geography, we have been comparing the two cities of Nottingham and London – learning about key landmarks of each and finding physical and human features.
Finally, landscapes have been our focus in Art this half term. We first explored landscapes by comparing the artists Monet and Hockney and their use of colour to represent seasons. We then mixed our own colours for each season before exploring oil pastels and using them to create our own landscape pictures.
We have had an exciting half term and are looking forward to continuing our learning next half term!
