Spring Term

Our topic this term is ‘Explorers’ with a visit to Chester Zoo and a classroom based 'Creepy Crawly Show' to support our learning. We focus our learning on the exciting story ‘AAAARRGGHH SPIDER!’, leading our focus towards animal exploration. We will learn about Mary Anning and her famous discoveries and create our own bug hotels in our school grounds.

In Literacy, we are exploring a range of exciting texts to support our learning, including, The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright & Jim Field and The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth by Ellie Hattie & Karl James Mountford.

Autumn Term

Our topic this term is ‘Explorers’ with a visit to Northwich and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester to support our learning. We focus our learning on the exciting story ‘Meerkat Mail’. Sunny the Meerkat is going to be travelling all around the world and we are going to be writing about what happens to him along the way and deciding on the best place for Sunny to live. Some of the questions that we will be exploring are What are the similarities and the differences between Northwich and Lostock Gralam? How has travel and tourism changed in and around the Northwich area over time? How has transport changed over time? Where would be a good place for Sunny the Meerkat to live?

 

In Literacy, we are exploring a range of exciting texts to support our learning, including, Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers and Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yarlett.

MOSI Trip 

We went on an exciting trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. We learnt about  the history of transport and how the steam locomotive changed the world. We helped figure out how a steam locomotive works and learnt a dance to help us to remember all the parts.

 

Starlings will be working very hard on their phonics work this year. We will focus on reading both real and made up, non-sense words in preparation for the Year One Phonics Screening Check in June.

We are looking forward to a busy and exciting year!
