The World

The new term has found us exploring the World in our Island/Great Explorations topic. We have a large world map which we have been using to find out about the different continents and the 5 oceans. We have also been finding out where the greetings we know, and use for the register originate from. In Art we enjoyed learning about the work of Richard Long, and then used the classroom objects to create patterns in his style. It was a rewardingly creative afternoon. In English we have started thinking about being lost on a desert island, enjoying the story of Miranda the Castaway. It has really helped us with 'extended sentence' writing. And then we went to Forest School - the muddy path is still amazingly watery - but nevertheless, we had a great time, looking for signs of Spring on the trees, and identifying which trees were which. After that we used natural wool (albeit dyed to some very bright shades!) to dress our newly made stick people. We brought them back to school and are going to use them to write little stories with.
