Term 6 started with us launching our topic Wriggle and Crawl by creating our own wormeries. The children were fascinated to follow the instructions and explore different ways to find worms and encourage them out of the ground.
Since creating our wormeries, we have been researching these fascinating mini beasts. Did you know that there are around 27 different species of worms in the UK? We are learning to care for them as we study them by ensuring that they have enough food and moisture to remain happy.
We have started to research significant people in history, with a focus on Charles Darwin and his work on finding different species of animals and plants when he travelled to the Galapagos Islands.
We are planning on following some of his methods and finding out about the different plants and habitats that we have growing here in school. We will be looking at what plants need in order to grow well, as well as sowing our own seeds and growing plants for our outside learning space. If you have any plant pots, seeds etc. that you know longer need, we will gratefully take these off your hands to support our learning!
For our English learning, we are using the text Superworm and are in the process of creating our own superhero stories. We continue to practise using our punctuation as well as trying hard to expand our vocabulary and use a range of interesting and descriptive word choices to create meaning.
In Maths, we are learning all about multiplication and are about to start learning about division. We are exploring different methods of recording our learning, such as using arrays, so that we are able to self-check and correct as necessary.
