Spring Term 2022 Learning

In the first half of the Spring Term our theme was ‘Happily Ever After’. We learnt about a different fairy tale story each week as the Jolly Postman stopped to deliver messages to the character’s house. We asked the children to bring in their favourite fairy tale books so we could read them as a class and discuss the story, characters and main events. We also had a Fairy Tale Dress Up day in which we had a fairy tale hunt, made fairy tale masks and created stories using the characters that the children had dressed as. We grew our own bean stalks as part of our learning about ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, and built houses out of straw, sticks and bricks to learn about materials through the ‘Three Little Pigs’ story. On COAT day, we made our own dens together in the woods using large branches and sticks. As part of learning about the world around us, we learnt about Chinese New Year and had a chance to act out the Lion dance and recreate the Chinese Zodiac race.

  

  

  

In the second half of the Spring term, Year F were focusing on the seasonal changes and the new growth and life that takes place in Spring. We went on a Spring walk to spot signs of Spring around our school environment. The children got the opportunity to look for mini beasts in the forest area and explore the different habitats in which the mini beasts lived. We grew our own cress and discussed what the seeds needed to grow, making sure we looked after them every day. We explored how we can look after our environment by recycling different materials, weeding, watering plants and tidying up after ourselves. At the end of the term we learnt why Easter is so special to Christians and created our own Easter gardens depicting the last few days of Jesus’s life. Then we went to the forest on an egg hunt, finding numbered eggs and ordering them correctly from 0-20.

  

  

COAT Day

Every Monday, the children in Year F spend the whole day learning outside. They have two sessions in the morning, one of which is PE. The other activity is creative using natural resources e.g. sticks, leaves to make pictures. This year so far we’ve made Autumn leaf pumpkins and poppies. We’ve also made fireworks/rockets using sticks and chalks. In the afternoon we go up to the forest and work together to make large scale models using branches and logs e.g. QI school, our friends, nests for Fred the Owl, fairy homes and doors and dens big enough for the whole class to get in. We get wet and muddy, find different bugs and wild flowers as well as experiencing the seasons first hand. The children love these days and so do the staff!

Autumn Term 2021 Learning

We started the half term celebrating Bonfire Night and Diwali. We collectively made leaf fireworks using the falling autumn leaves. We also made clay diva lamps to celebrate Diwali. We used our thumbs and fingers to pinch the sides before putting a tea light candle inside. Then we sat in a circle and sang a song about Diwali. This was a really special moment. We also celebrated what we enjoyed most about being a part of Queen's Inclosure Primary School.

We started off learning about Armistice Day and why we have a Remembrance Day each year with a whole class assembly. After this, we made some of our own poppies using tissue paper and leaves. We collectively had a minutes silence as a whole school and remembered and thought about our loved ones, friends and family.

Later on in the term we also learned about Hannukah and Advent before commencing our build up to Christmas

.

Throughout this half term we have learned a lot about how we are all different. We look different, live in different homes, have different families and celebrate events in different ways.
