With Spring blooming round the corner, what a great time it is to take a look at some wonderful plants! Our Lovely Limes will be getting to the root of the plant life-cycle and will be creating an explanation text which will leaf you astonished! We will be exploring plant features, how they are similar and different, observe and record plant growth, investigate what conditions are needed for various plants to survive, identify the stages of plant growth and use all of this knowledge to put into our explanation texts! Stay tuned to see our little seeds blossom into extraordinary plant experts!
Lime Trees are preparing to take a trip around the world! We will be identifying various locations on a United Kingdom and World map, identifying countries, 7 continents and 5 oceans and learning about the differences between a city, country and continent. In addition to this, our Globe Trotters will be learning about the local area, learning facts about the United Kingdom and describing and comparing the characteristics of various places. Get ready to explore with Lime Trees!
Get your lab coats on! For this Learning Experience, Lime Trees will become scientists studying and investigating a variety of marvellous materials! We will be looking at the properties of materials, classify them into groups, compare their similarities and differences and investigate why certain materials are better suited for particular uses. We will then apply this knowledge to test and record which materials will best prevent an egg from cracking when dropped from a height.
(WARNING: things may get very egg-stremely messy!)
During our Learning Experience, we will be designing, making and evaluating Festive cards. We will be using collage to bring our stunning designs to life! Firstly, we have to think carefully about what designs we could draw. Next, we have to think about what materials we will use and how we can use them. Finally, we will need to think about how we could improve our Crafty Cards to make them even better! (Which will be hard to do with so many creative minds in Lime Trees!) Keep watching to see our Creative Crafty Cards!
Over the next few weeks, the children will learn about the 4 seasons and events that take place during them. We will then focus in on Autumn and explore all the physical changes that happen in nature and the exciting events that take place such as Halloween and Bonfire Night. During our English lessons, the children will have opportunities to explore exciting vocabulary used to described all the fascinating things that make Autumn special. In preparation for writing our own poems, we will analyse existing poems and play around with poetic devices such as alliteration and onomatopoeia to make fun combinations of exciting words. Once the children have created their own poem, they will have opportunity to add actions and perform it to an audience!
