The Scented Garden’
Tiptoe through the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs into our final topic ‘The Scented Garden’
Over the term the children will explore traditional tales, poetry and non-fiction texts while exploring and growing their very our beans. They will have the chance to create instructions and demonstrate our values during den making as well as creating their very own scented products.
Wriggle and Crawl
This term we will be becoming entomologists! We will be discovering what beastly bugs and creepy crawlies are living around us. We will be getting out and about to investigate, discover and learn. Through asking and answering questions, children will find out out bugs, what makes them special, life cycles, habitats and so much more. We are very excited about the term ahead!
We would like to wish Mrs Smith all the best of luck as she goes on maternity leave, and welcome Miss Slater to the Year 2 team.
Our Christian value for this term is trust.
Today we have celebrated the festival of Diwali. We have had a wonderful time, dressing up in Hindu clothes and doing some Bollywood dancing with Sunita. We have also created Rangoli patterns on the school playground with chalk and coloured some in ourselves. We have sent 'Happy Diwali' cards to each other and watched a film which explained more about the festival of lights and what it is all about. What a fun and fantastic day! Thank you to Jithan's mum for donating some saris for the teachers to wear!
This term we are stepping back in time to the era of Oliver Twist, as we kick off our topic with a day in the life of a Victorian. The children will be dressing up and experiencing what life was like in a school, kitchen and on a wash day over 150 years ago! Look out for fab photos from the day!
We will also be finding out about what life was like in the West End of Lincoln in the past and seeing how the streets around the area have changed. We will use maps to help us with this and understand how to read maps and use symbols and a key. We will also be programming computers using simple apps on the ipad to follow instructions to navigate around a map of our own creating!
And of course we will be getting ready for the Christmas play...Is the Midwife calling?!!
