What we've been doing

Summer 1:

This half term we have been looking at the human body. We have explored what makes up our bodies; bones, muscles, organs. We have made human models showing how all of theses work together to enable us to move and grow and function as we do. We have also looked at healthy eating and how this contributes to how our bodies work.

Chestnut have really enjoyed learning French so far this half term, they are able to greet each other, ask how each other are and count to 10.


In English we have been looking at fronted adverbials, inverted commas and apostrophes and will be focusing on using these in our next piece of writing. We have started reading the story of Sinbad the Sailor as we are focusing on Stories from other cultures. 


In Maths we have looked at 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We used our knowledge of these to sort different shapes and every day items depending on their properties. We have now moved on to Fractions, finding fractions of shapes and now amounts of objects.


In PSHE we have been discussing jobs and stereotypes within different job roles. I was so impressed with their open minded responses to this we then discussed what job they would like to do when they are older and it was lovely to hear their aspirations and beliefs that they can be anything they want to be.
