Welcome back Pine Tree Class. We hope you all had a lovely break and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

This half term our creative curriculum theme is Pear Tree Olympics. This will be incorporated within all our learning. In Literacy we have started to read the story Topsy and Tim Sports Day. We will be taking part in some of our own sports in class which I’m sure will be lots of fun. Numeracy will focus on Fractions (Using and Applying) and Shape and Space. We are continuing our home and school topic in Let’s Talk Makaton and will be developing our own sign language skills focusing on school. In Science we will be continuing our topic of plants, and in History we will be learning about Africa – Benin (AD 900-1300). Computing this half term will be Communication and Networks and in Design Technology the topic is eggs.

We have had a fantastic week and have started to prepare for our Pine Tree Olympics by using card and tissue paper to make our own Olympic torches. We have been developing our knowledge and understanding of different countries and their National Anthems and flags and we are going to incorporate these within the Pear Tree Olympic Inspiration Day opening ceremony on Friday.

Have a good weekend,

Love Everyone in Pine Tree Class 🙂
