Green class have had a very busy half term. In English, we have been reading the book ‘Clean up’ and how plastic is bad for our beaches. We have learnt that there are over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans. If we all worked together and put our rubbish in the bins we would have much cleaner beaches! This would also help protect the wild life too.
In maths we have been learning to add numbers up to 20 and some of Green class have been adding 2 digit numbers using the column addition method.
We have had two fun trips, a morning at soft play and a wonderful trip to Beckenham Place Park.
In science we have been learning about food chains and how animals get their food. We then made food chains to show what animals eat. At Forest School, we have been eagerly looking for mini beasts and building dens.
We have done lots of painting in art this term, practicing our control of brushstrokes and making marks. We made our own collage paper using different types of paint and then made characters inspired by Jon Klassen’s books. This week we made sea shells from clay and have worked hard to paint the textures on them. Don’t they look great?
