This term, we have started studying different aspects of St Lucia. We can already find St Lucia on a map, discuss its extreme weather and the main features of the island. We know what hemisphere, continent and ocean St Lucia is in and we have only just started the topic ! We have created stunning pieces of art linked to our topic, including exotic fruit and sunset collages.
Literacy – We have been studying ‘The children of Lir’ by Sheila MacGill-Callahan and ‘The gentle giant’ by Michael Morpurgo. The children of Lir is a haunting Irish legend about a king's jealous wife who puts a curse on his children, changing them into swans, until such time as the Man from the North and the Woman from the South--two mountain peaks--are joined together. Cedar class would recommend both books as great reads.
Our science topic this term is Plants. We have discussed how to help plants grow well. Our new topic is Teeth and we are so excited about our school trip to the ‘The Natural History Museum’ to Investigate how teeth are related to diet in a fantastic interactive workshop.
Maths - Problem solving can be great fun, but also very demanding. We are working on many different strategies to help us with the variety of problems that we encounter during our maths lessons. Our confidence is growing all the time.
During our P.E. lessons, we have been continuing with swimming lessons and tennis. Swimming has been so much fun and all the children have made great personal progress in swimming techniques and water confidence.
