As a class we have filled our marble jar for great work and behaviour so the children chose to watch CBeebies with a few treats during their "Afternoon of Happiness!"

Term 4 - Seasons and the Weather!

This term we are going to be learning all about the four seasons!

We will be learning the key signs for each season as well as learning about the life cycles that happen throughout the year. We are going to tie learning about the weather into our topic as well this term, as they fit so well together! Here's hoping for lots of better weather this term so we can have lots of outdoor learning - otherwise wellies and rain suits here we come!

We used the song "My Four Seasons Tree," to help us make our trees look correct for the season they are in. I think you'll agree, all of our children have shown great understanding in their use of colour and shapes on the trees.

Take a look at our amazing "Holiday writing" about our half term activities.

Our topic for Term 3 is.......

OUTER SPACE!

We have had our first go at designing in Orchard class. We all designed our very own space rocket using recycled materials and then made it afterwards. I think you will agree - the results are out of this world!

An out of this world scientific investigation from the Aliens!

As part of our learning about planets, we have baked EARTH COOKIES! They were delicious!

"The boy who switched off the sun," was our story focus for this week's Scientific investigation. "How can you melt your ice-cube to get the hidden object out?"

Doubling with a slice of magic - We used mirrors to see "double" the amount of objects to help us with our Maths calculation work!

"Whatever Next" - We found our own space helmets, space boots and rockets for our class teddy bears, just like Baby bear did in our story.
