Spring term

This term our topic is 'The Sea' and our core story is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. This is about a boy who helps a penguin find his home. During the story a range of emotions are experienced by the boy and the penguin including disappointment, fear and loneliness.  

Our trip this half term is to Hunstanton to visit the Sealife Centre where we will be learning facts and information about different sea creatures. We will get the opportunity to touch and hold a Crab and Starfish!

After half term, our topic is 'Owls'. Firstly we will be learning facts and information about Owls and we will have the opportunity to hold a Owl with a visit from the Raptor Foundation. Following this we will be reading 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell. We will be developing our comprehension skills by asking questions about the text and visualising  where the mother owl has gone. 

Later in the term we will be thinking about Farms and our core stories will be What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson and The Three Little Pigs.  

Towards the end of the term we will be visiting Sacrewell Farm we will be having a Tractor ride and feeding the Lambs.
