This week we have been learning through the stories of katie Morag. We found out lots of facts about her. We wrote a letter apologising to her mum when the parcel delivery went wrong. We also role-played being Katie Morag.


Some of us have been revising all the split digraphs.

Some of us have been learning the different l spellings: l in like, ll in grill, le in table and al in medal. Also we've been learning the different z spellings: z in Eliza, zz in buzz, se in noise and ze in freeze.


We have been measuring using cubes. We have worked extremely well together and recorded our results accurately.

We then measured different shapes using a ruler.


We have been learning how to be a good Christian by following the Ten Commandments. We focused on 'Love Thy Neighbour' and read the story of The Good Samaritan. We then identified who our neighbours are and made a whole class doll paper chain to show that we are all each other's neighbour.


Some of us started to learn about the different seasons. We identified each one and drew pictures of what we can see in each season.


Some of us started to learn about what an 'explorer' is. We were history detectives and used evidence to work out the answers to some questions.

Forest School

In our first session we went for a walk and noticed many changes. We collected different flowers and grasses. We used elastic bands to make a weaving frame and explored how we could make a piece of natural art.

Our other session was all about butterflies. We described butterflies and noticed different patterns, colours and shapes. We then made a butterfly using lolly sticks, pipe cleaners, wool and beads. We learnt the names of the parts of a butterfly. We tried to drink from flowers without touching the flower- it was impossible until we used the straw. The straw represented the part of a butterfly called the proboscis. This enables the butterfly to drink water and collect nectar.
