Our topic this term is ‘All About Us’ he children have really enjoyed learning about their local area. We went on a walk, drew maps and found Highworth on the map. The children have been amazing and have really found it interesting.
In science we have been exploring how we use parts of our bodies to taste, smell, touch, feel and see. These are our 5 senses. We used these senses to experiment and explore different fruits, foods, objects and noises.
In Phonics we are now using a scheme across Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 called Song of Sounds. Song of Sounds teaches the children all of their sounds to read and write through a catchy song and rhythmic actions. Please click the link below to hear the song and see the sounds. WARNING! It will get stuck in your head.
In Penguin Class we enjoyed the Chocolate workshop. We learnt how the chocolate is made, the history of chocolate and all about the ingredients. We did an amazing job on making chocolate lollipops and chocolate treats.
We had a special visitor called Bella coming from the local church and talking to us about Easter and Easter traditions. We listened to story about Jesus, talked about our feelings and decorated stones at the end.
