A big Welcome from Wise Owls!
Teacher: Mrs Epstein

School Year 2018 - 2019
We are so looking forward to the year ahead.
This half term we will be learning all about the planets in the solar system and the moon landing.
This half term we will be travelling back in time to April 1912 to find out what happened to the 'Ship of dreams' Titanic. The children will be writing using both fiction and non fiction genres as they think about what they would hear, see and feel if they were a passenger on board.
The children will be Titanic experts by the time we visit the SeaCity Museum for the landing of our topic.
Save the Rainforest
This half term we will become Global detectives and scientists as we learn about the issues surrounding the rainforests all around the world. We will learn about plants, animals and their habitats.
Our topic this half term is called Happy Feet we will be learning all about Antarctica and the animals that live there.
It has been such a busy term and we have learnt lots about the danger to Penguins and other animals in Antarctica due to climate change. We felt so strongly about the plight of the Penguins that we created an art gallery and sold our work to raise money to adopt a Penguin. We raised £181 and were able to adopt three Penguins one for each year 2 class.
Everyday we enjoy some Wriggle time and dough gym this is to help us build up our core muscles and fine motor skills. These will help to improve our handwriting.
Our first topic is It's Magic and the children have received a letter from Merlin the Wizard asking for their help to come up with some new spell
for his spell book.
We have been busy writing instructions for Merlin's new spells and enjoyed an afternoon with our families showing them all our work and making magic pictures.
In PE this half term we have been learning to swim! We have really enjoyed visiting QMC and developing our swimming skills.
What a great start to the new school term!
