Term 2 - Marvelous Materials
Hello and welcome to Term 2!
Our topic this term is a scientific theme based around materials. We have called it 'Marvellous Materials'.
During the term, we will be exploring the different types of materials and their properties. We will also be investigating the suitability of materials for different purposes through a D&T project as well as through scientific investigations.
This is an exciting term as it will be kick off of our brand new reading scheme from the Oxford Reading Tree. Make sure you make a fantastic start by getting stuck into your new books. We can't wait!
In writing we will focusing on the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. This will be the basis for creating our own stories.

Please return all PE kits by the first week as our PE days will be on Monday and Thursday. The uniform should be: White T-shirt, Black shorts/ leggings, black trainers.
This week we went to the park to observe signs of Autumn. Before we went, we made predictions as to what we might find. As predicted, we found twigs and leaves of different colours but we were also surprised with the stalks of different colours. We collected a lot of leaves, I am sure some made it home too, and grouped them together. The children were amazed with the sheer number of leaves in the park and how many more there were to come!
