This half term we learnt lots about several different celebrations. These included Halloween, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Sunday, Diwali and of course Christmas! We also let our imaginations run wild as we were inspired by our Power of Reading book which was Stanley’s Stick by John Hegley. We explored poetry and imaginative writing, whilst also learning about materials and how these can be recycled, reused and repurposed.
This half term our focus has been learning about London. We read the story Paddington’s Post and learnt that Paddington Bear was found at Paddington Station in London, which is how he gets his name.
We have really enjoyed learning about famous places in London and have made some brilliant models of them in our home learning. In class we have explored the characters in the Paddington story and written poems about Paddington. We have written instructions for how to make his favourite marmalade sandwich. We have also made bridges, trains and bears with moving parts in DT.
