Our Topic

For the first part of the half term our topic was based around the book 'I'm going to eat this ANT'. We worked hard to explore the story and looked at where the anteater is found, as well as other animals that live in the rainforest. We looked at the different kinds of rainforest, and where the Amazon rainforest is in the world.


We also used Earth Cubs to give us some very interesting information about the Amazon, and used it to provide some very exciting learning opportunities within our classroom. 







Now we are moving into December and the build up to Christmas, we will be using wintery themed books to base our learning around, first up its Stick Man by Julia Donaldson. The story is great, and there are some short clips of his adventures on youtube, take a look! 



Forest School

Forest School takes place on Monday afternoon - Please ensure that all children have wellies and old/waterproof clothes at school.
