Term 2 - Our Amazing World

Take a trip around the world with Willow Trees during Term 2! This topic will allow children to develop their geography skills as they learn about the continents, oceans and weather of the world! They will learn about the equator and how this affects the temperature of countries. Children will explore two countries (England and China), finding out key information, human and physical features and comparing the two capital cities, London and Beijing. Our PSHE learning will focus on family life in these two countries. Children will also get the opportunity to create collages to reflect the different seasons. They will practise their descriptive writing by exploring the wonderful book, 'The Snail and the Whale'.

Take a look at our Knowledge Organiser for this term...

We had a brilliant time at the Christmas fair!

Look at our fantastic seasons collages! We used a range of different materials to create texture!

Willow Trees completed the Santa Trail, finding clues and solving the puzzle to win a prize at the end!

We enjoyed a brioche for breakfast and a Christmas story!

We have decided to study two countries: the UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ and China! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ 
We began by sorting through lots of pictures and having discussions to see what country we thought each picture belonged to.

Look at our amazing coral reef collages...inspired by one of the settings in β€˜The Snail and The Whale’.

We have been focusing on this wonderful book this week. We began by watching the animation and having a brilliant discussion about what we’d seen. Then, we listened to the story from the book and sequenced the key events. Next, we focussed on the amazing settings from the story, planned some descriptive language and wrote some amazing descriptive paragraphs.

Willow Trees had a yummy treat this week! We enjoyed a delicious, toasted bagel and enjoyed some books with our friends. It was such a lovely experience and we did so well with spreading our own butter and jam! πŸ§ˆπŸ“
