In Gymnastics we have been working on balances and sequences whilst using the apparatus. We have enjoyed the different stations set up each week.
In English we have based our work on the story ‘Meerkat Mail’. We created our own meerkat that has been across the world visiting the different continents. We have been really busy writing information pages, letters, persuasive writing, stories and postcards about the places visited by our meerkat. We have really enjoyed this term and all the different styles of writing we have done!
In Art we have been creating different landscapes based on the different places our meerkat has visited. We have used a range of media and methods including pastels, chalk, water paint, and photos and felt pens. We created the Kalahari Desert landscape with meerkats, an Amazon Rainforest using photos in a collage, silhouettes of London landmarks and aboriginal style art of Ayers Rock.
In D and T we have been learning about where in the world different foods come from. We tried different foods from different continents, we have also been learning about the different foods that belong on the ‘Eat well Plate’ and grouped foods accordingly. We have been thinking about what makes a healthy lunchbox, and had a go at making our own healthy breakfast and smoothies. We have enjoyed this topic and learning about how to keep ourselves healthy.
To finish our topic we took a trip to Bristol Zoo to spot some of the animals that we had learnt about this term. We had a great day out!
