T3+4 2022 Update
We kicked off Term 3 by flying to China. We learnt about the landmarks, cooked Chinese food, learnt some Mandarin and celebrated Chinese New Year! We enjoyed learning about the story of Gruffalo, exploring our Gruffalo Café during Let’s Explore time and we even went on a Gruffalo adventure at the Three Hills.
In Term 4 our topic was ‘What a Wonderful World’. We learnt about the story of the Bog Baby which taught us the importance of preserving and protecting animals habitats and making sure they eat the right food. We have been learning greetings in various languages and exploring the world though our explorer headquarters role play area and by playing on Google Earth.
We went on a woodland walk and were amazed to find Bog Baby footprints and when we tried pond dipping we found lots of newts! We finished the term by learning about the wonderful book ‘Old Enough to Save the Planet’, which has been teaching us lots of ways we can make a difference to the environment!
T1+2 2021 Update
Willow Class have made an amazing start to their journeys at Lympne! They have all settled in well and made lots of new friends.
In Term 1 we were joined in Class by the Colour Monster (Based on the Colour Monster book). The Colour Monster was having a difficult time regulating his emotions, so each day we thought of ideas to help him get back to being happy and calm, in the process we also learnt to process and understand our own emotions! In PE we loved doing Balance-ability on the balance bikes.
In Term 2 we had a lot of fun learning about the book ‘Supertato’. Evil Pea kept popping into class to play pranks on the vegetables so we made traps and posters to make him stop. We had a Superhero day where we all dressed up as Superheroes and completed some of Evil Pea and Supertato’s challenges! We also read the book ‘Kindness is my Superpower’ and thought about what our Superpowers are, and we read ‘Real Heroes’ and learnt about the real superheroes doing jobs that help us every day!
In Term 2 we also celebrated Diwali and bonfire night, we enjoyed creating our own Rangoli patterns and firework art! We have also been working hard on our dancing and we wowed the judges with our superhero dance at the school showcase!
In December, we enjoyed practicing our ‘Happy Clappy Nativity’ and having Sprinkles the Elf visit us.
Next term we are looking forward to learning about the Gruffalo and China and starting gymnastics!
