Apple Class in the Spring
Our topic this term is ‘Stories’. We will be reading and talking about our favourite stories including Jack and the Beanstalk and stories from Greece, told by Miss Pelly. Using pictures and role play we hope to create and record our own stories. Our class will take part in The Big Schools’ Bird Watch run by the RSPB and will create 3D mobiles of the birds we spot around our school.
This term we become more involved with whole school life when we join assembly every Friday afternoon.
Every week both Red and Green Apple teachers will nominate a ‘Star of the Week’ – recognising something a child has done or achieved to make them stand out that week. A certificate will be awarded to the child by Mr Kemp in assembly
Each child will also start an Emerald Passport. They will receive a star on their passport for different reasons; good work, trying hard, being kind, helpful or good behaviour for example. Once 20 stars have been earned the child will be awarded a passport certificate in assembly. The child will then go on to earn stars for their Sapphire Passport.
Our topic this term is ‘On the Farm’. We will be finding out about farms and farm animals using nonfiction books and ICT. Using different techniques and textures, we will be creating farm animals. Finally a trip to Farmer Gow’s at the end of the term will help us to see the things we have learnt about first hand.
