Spring Term

3 have had a fantastic half term learning all about their topic ‘Weather’. The children became weather reporters, created their own weather map and looked at different climate zones around the world. To complete the topic they painted their own artistic impression of different weather conditions. Many children have completed fantastic homework models representing different weather conditions. In English we have been reading ‘Wind in the Willows’ and have written our own newspaper report based on some of the characters and their activities.
