Hello and welcome!

*Our Christian Value for the term*


Our value in term  is 'Justice'. Justice is about ensuring fairness in the way people are dealt with and making sure that all people are treated equally. It is having the quality of being reasonable and fair. It is striving to put right or prevent an injustice.


Proverbs 21:15 When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous. Amos 5:24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream. Psalm 106:3 Blessed are those who act justly, who always do what is right. Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do right, seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.


What can you do to show justice? Here are some examples:

Include everyone in your play. Don't judge people by how they look - remember we are all the same on the inside. Take turns with equipment and resources - don't keep something for yourself but make sure it is shared and everyone has a turn. Are you good at working as part of a team? Show consideration and empathy for others. Are you good at resolving arguments with others? How can you ensure a fair outcome?Practise seeing things from someone else's point of view. Think about ways that you can help people in the world who may not have as much as others. What can you do to help them? How can you bring about  positive change in the world where everyone is treated fairly and equally?


"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." Elie Wiesel





*Our Learning for the term*

Walk on the Wild Side!


This term we are learning about animals and places around the world.  Our English focuses on fiction and non fiction this term.  Look at what we have in store...



This term we begin by reading Handa's Surprise!  We will learn about the fruits that Handa carries in her basket, we will draw them and taste them and then learn how to use similies and alliteration to describe them.  Then it's our turn to write our own version of Handa's Surprise!!

After we will move on to learn about non fiction texts and the features of a non chronological report.  We will focus on writing a non chronological report on animals from the wild.



This term our Maths takes on a very practical twist.  We are learning about money, measurement and position.  We will be measuring in mass and capacity in non standard measurements and using the correct language to compare two different masses and volume too.

We continue to practise counting in different sequences, our focus is twos, fives and tens.



This term we look for signs of Spring.  We will learn how plants change in Spring and will be able to name some common plants and trees found in Spring.

We will use the Springtime to plant lots of flowers and vegetables from seed and observe them as they grow and change.



This term we are working closely with Garry from Lincs2Nepal to learn how life in Nepal is similar and different to life in Lincoln.  We will use photographs to help us understand these similarities and differences.



This term we focus on Incarnation.  We will learn about how Christians celebrate Christmas and the importance of the symbols of Christmas for Christians and what they mean.



Linked to our Science, we will learn about having a healthy diet and understanding the different food groups that we must eat in order to maintain a balanced diet.  We will make our own salads to enjoy!



This term we continue to learn how to be safe on the Internet and will use Natterhub to help us understand the importance of Internet Safety.



This term we will experiment with different instruments - looking how their sounds change as they are tuned and untuned.
