We have explored the underground world of Britain and have enjoyed learning about the creatures and plant life found around us. We also went further afield and learned about the burrowing mammals in Australia.This term we have been ‘travelling’ on our underground train to landmarks in London. We’ve discovered interesting facts about the people and places from London today and in the past.  Miss Loach’s class are currently discovering the dinosaurs at the National History Museum and Miss Curran’s class have been busy ‘visiting’ the Science museum, finding out about Light, Dark and Electricity.We will shortly be visiting Father Christmas at the North Pole and will remain in the Artic next term. We will compare our locality to the villages of the people in colder climates and discover what it’s like to live there. Later on in the year we will explore further afield, looking at space, living on an island, Cornwall and life under the sea. In reception we use the Read Write Inc sounds to develop pupils phonics knowledge. The books are used to develop sound patterns to help children with their reading and writing. Children work through a colour coded reading scheme which offer a wide range of reading material, some of which are the Oxford Reading Tree books.
