We have planned lots of exciting learning and activities for you based around this topic and we can't wait to hear all about what you get up to!
I have added dates to the planning to help everyone keep track of where they are up to!
I have also moved all past planning and resources to the bottom of the page, they're all still there if you need to revisit them!
It sounds like you and your families have worked hard to settle into a routine that works for you now, and that you're engaging in a range of activities; cooking, games, crafts, books and stories, schoolwork and physical activity! Keep it up!

I would LOVE to hear from the children and find out all about their exciting home learning adventures!

Happy New Year!
We hope that you all had a wonderful and restful holiday.
This half term we are learning all about the 'Polar Regions'.
We have learnt all about the animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctic.
Did you know that penguins and polar bears don't live together?
Penguins live in the South Pole whereas Polar Bears live in the North Pole.
We have really enjoyed learning about the different types of penguins.
We learnt about the life cycle of a penguin and were amazed to find out that the Daddy penguin has to look after the egg on his feet for 2 whole months!
We made our own penguin eggs and tried waddling around our very own Antarctic terrain (the playground) without dropping it. It was VERY HARD!
Then we got into a huddle to protect ourselves from the cold, just like penguins in Antarctica.
This half term the children have started their weekly spelling tests.
Spellings will be given out each Wednesday and stuck in the back of the reading diary in the 'Spelling Record'. They will be tested the following Wednesday. Please remember to practise your children's spellings with then each night. Creative ideas for how to practice can be found in the 'Spelling Superstars' booklet sent home this half term.
We are so impressed with how enthusiastic the children have been about their weekly spelling tests!
The children have explored some different ideas for practising their spellings in school. Take a look...
We used playdoh, pipe cleaners, chalk and coloured post it notes to practise writing our spellings!
This half term our topic is 'Under the Sea'. We have learnt lots about the different sea creatures and plants that live under the sea, designed and made our own tropical aquariums and explored lots of stories about pirates and mermaids!
A Pirate visited our class and left us clues around the classroom. His name was Pirate Pete. We wrote our own stories about Pirate Pete and learnt how to use adjectives to make our writing more descriptive.
We learnt about the Christmas Story and performed an AMAZING Christmas concert to our grown ups. We practised really hard and we hope that you all loved it!
In the last week, we had a Christmas Party to celebrate all of our hard work this term. We got a visit from Father Christmas and he gave each of us a present!
This half term we have been learning about 'Our World' comparing where we live to other places in the world! We have learnt lots about The United Kingdom, the city of Nottingham and the capital city of London.
We read lots of stories about Paddington Bear to help us learn more about London.
Did you know, Paddington Bear is from Peru in South America?
In October, we learnt about the Goose Fair! We learnt all about the history of Goose Fair and why is happens in Nottingham each year. We created some beautiful artwork and wrote all about our own visits to Goose Fair!
As the weather started to change, we began exploring the season of Autumn and went on an autumn walk around our school. We observed the changes to the trees and used lots of harvest vegetables to make our very own autumn soup! It was delicious!
