This year started with "The Great Outdoors", our first topic of the new year welcoming everyone back with an interesting nature and wildlife theme.

We have been busy searching for evidence of the plants and wildlife around us during a wildlife walk, where we were also able to collect natural material to use in our artwork back in the classroom.

In Science and ICT we have been categorising nature and using branching databases to show various ways we can do it.  We also thoroughly enjoyed our visit from Jonathon's Jungle Roadshow where we got to meet some amazing creatures face to face and appreciate their similarities and differences close up!

In numeracy we have also been searching the great outdoors for angles, especially right angles around the school premises and in Literacy we have been studying information texts and writting our own on an animal we have researched.

We have thoroughly enjoyed this topic and are looking forward to our next topic with interest.
