Merton Mission: - This is our new homework project to replace the weekly activities. This can be done at anytime during the half term.

Make it: Make a nurses hat and a pocket watch for the children to use in the hospital role play area.

Read it: Find out about another significant person in history. We can't wait to find out who you discover!

Do it:  Recreate an art master piece of Florence Nightingale in anyway you can. This can be a drawing, painting or collage.

Wriggle Time

We have wriggle time everyday to help develop our core and fine motor skills this helps us with our handwriting.  

Autumn 1  

Titanic

 

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 are already becoming Titanic experts after our visit to the SeaCity Museum for the launch of our topic.

Please keep checking back for more news about what we get up to.

Autumn 2 

Antarctica  

 

This half term the children will be looking at the danger of climate change and how this affects animals in Antarctica. They will be learning lots of facts about different animals from Antarctica  such as penguins, seals, killer whales and others. They are hoping to adopt a penguin from the WWF as they are becoming incredibly vulnerable due to climate change.
