PE / Forest School

Friday is our class PE session and our Forest School session is on a Tuesday.

Spring 1 Topic

Our first topic of the Spring term  is 'Rio de Vida' which will help us learn about the Rio Carnival.  We will learn about the floats, costumes and music of the carnival and why people celebrate in this way.  We will find out where in the world Rio is located and what it would be like to live there.  We will also learn about the Amazon rainforest and which animals live there.  We will be looking at the environment and what we can do to help preserve it.

Our Autumn topic is 'Dinosaur Planet' which will help us learn about different dinosaurs, their habitats and why dinosaurs are extinct.  We will be reading lots of dinosaur story books and non-fiction books to help us find out about dinosaurs.

We have had great fun during our dinosaur topic.  We have had a dinosaur egg in the classroom, dug up dinosaur bones, found out lots of information from books and had fun pretending to be dinosaurs.  Rrrrooooaaaarrr!

Dinosaur Day


As part of dinosaur topic we had a whole day devoted to dinosaur fun.  We made dinosaur peg puppets, dinosaur masks and tails, biscuits and our very own fossils.


In F2 this Christmas we have been writing letters to Santa, learning about the Grinch who stole Christmas, the true Christmas story and having fun at our Christmas party.  Ooh and dont forget the snowball fight!
