We are learning about explorers from the past this half term. We have used our reading skills to learn about what it is like in Antarctica and how Robert Falcon Scott prepared for his journey. We have discussed what we have learnt, and we don't think that his team was very well prepared for the conditions in Antarctica.


We have been learning about where in the world we would find hot and cold places and what these places would be like. We have used chalks and pastels to create art works to show animals from hot and cold countries.


We shared the story of the animals racing across the river for Chinese New Year and completed designs to celebrate the Year of The Pig


We have been learning about festivals and celebrations in RE this term. We have thought about how weddings are celebrated in different cultures, and we have learnt about why and how Diwali, Hanukkah and Christmas are celebrated. We have also worked very hard to prepare and perform our Nativity to the school and parents.
