Mouse Class Summer 2021

Wow what an exciting and magnificent half term we have had in Mouse Class!

This half term our overall theme has been minibeasts and our Power of Reading books have been Aaaarrgghh Spider! By Lydia Monks and Yucky Worms by Vivian French. Inspired by our topic we have had several new additions to our classroom; which we have taken care of. These included worms which we kept in our class wormery, snails and even caterpillars which then transformed into butterflies!

In Science we have been learning lots of facts about minibeasts and even created our own non-chronological reports about worms which we were very proud of. We have also been learning about habitats of minibeasts and about what plants need to survive. We thoroughly enjoyed planting our own sunflowers and caring for them.

We ended this extraordinary half term with Maths and Art week. The children have loved learning about new artists and creating work in the style of Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky  and Faith Ringgold.

Mouse Class Update Autumn 2

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.
