Our second term of the Spring kicked off with our Amazing Animals topic. For our launch day, children went on an animal print expedition around our school. We created Amazing Animal masks, conducted penguin science experiments and built the perfect habitats for our favourite animals. Throughout this topic, the children have developed their classifying skills in Science, developing their understanding of the different types of animals. We hunted for animal clues in the secret garden and decided whether we thought the clues belonged to mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds or fish by observing each animal clue closely. During art the children explored colour mixing to create African sunsets for their animal silhouette paintings. To round off our topic, the children had a visit from Aquatic Finatic. Every child experienced holding, feeling and looking at amazing animals from all around the world, learning about how they are cared for and where they live in the wild.
Bright Lights Big City
During our first Spring term, we learnt all about The Great Fire of London. To get us excited for our topic, we enjoyed building real fires and toasting marshmallows in the secret garden, baking fresh bread and designing 17th century clothing. This was a fantastic topic which saw children writing newspaper reports, building 17th century houses in DT, developing their map skills and locational knowledge in geography as well as learning all about the historical figure, Samuel Pepys. To end our topic with a BANG, we set fire to our own 'London City' on the playground and invited the Northallerton Fire Brigade in to teach us all about fire safety!
