This term we have dived into our new topic ‘Under the Sea’. We have learnt so many fascinating facts, such as the difference between the ocean and the sea. The children have loved learning about the different layers of the ocean and what sea animals live where. We have worked hard at writing sentences about dolphins.

In Maths, we have been using our tens frame to count a given amount and adding one more or less. The children have then moved on to doubling. They have written some amazing maths stories to display this.

In PSED, we have been talking about our feelings: things that make us feel worried, happy or angry. The children have also been learning about sharing. We are very good at sharing with our friends.

We have made some fabulous sea creatures using paper plates.

In addition, we have learnt about the festival of Eid al-Fitr; we have enjoyed making Eid cards and talked about how this festival is celebrated. We enjoyed using a fine paint brush to paint henna patterns; they looked extremely sparky with glitter! The children engaged in roleplaying prayers using a prayer mat.
