Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope
During the Spring term the children developed so much in spite of so many of them having to overcome the interruptions caused by time off due to covid. We had a fantastic trip to the Cotswold Wildlife where the children loved seeing and learning about so many amazing animals. The children became more independent and coherent in their writing linked to our reading and writing about Anthony Brown's family visit to the Zoo and An interview with a Tiger by Andy Seed and Nick East.
In PE the children developed control and strength in their gymnastic movements and balances and particularly loved working on the wall bars. Outdoors they developed skills and understanding of the rules of tag rugby. Our Forest School lessons were held in the school grounds but the children still used their environment and natural resources to support learning and developing their skills working together.
In geography they loved learning about volcanoes and earthquakes and are becoming really good at remembering where to find different countries and seas on maps. This also provided a stimulus for some lovely artwork using a range of mediums.
