Welcome to Squirrels with Mrs Harrison and Mrs Latty
Squirrels topic for the Spring term is going to be Sensational Safari. As part of this topic we will be learning about our local area and comparing it to Kenya in Africa. We will be creating our own animal information books, learning about food chains and animal habitats in science and also designing and making fruit smoothies. Our English texts will include the poetry anthology 'Rumble in the Jungle' and the picture book 'Lila and the Secret of Rain'. Our class text will be The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. I am also hoping to arrange a class visit to All Things Wild. I will keep you posted about this.
We will be doing PE on Wednesday morning and a Friday morning - please ensure PE kits are in school on this day.
We will change reading books on a Monday and Thursday. If you have read your book to the end, reading it again can improve fluency and understanding of the text.
Spellings will be set on a Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday. Please support your child by practising their spellings with them.
Links to websites that the children use in school which may be useful for them to access at home.
