With the new term in Mint, we have begun our new topic – ‘Getting to the Root of it’. As part of our topic launch the children immersed themselves into some observational drawings of nature. They have looked at leaves, flowers and other things in nature to replicate its natural beauty and details.
This week as part of World Book Week celebrations, we have been looking at a text by Jess French called ‘Protect the Planet’ which links very nicely into our topic. The children have learnt the importance of looking after our planet and have created some lovely poems, collages and posters to go with their learning.
We have also been very lucky to participate in not just one but three virtual ‘meet the author’ events throughout the course of the week. The children have said that this has been both inspiring and fun. The children have all enjoyed guessing the ‘Masked Reader’ and working around activities based on lots of picture books.
For PHSCE, we have been looking at the importance of keeping fit and leading a healthy life. However as the week draws to a close the children are most excited about being back in school on Monday 8th March 2021!
