Welcome to St Patrick's!
Term 3 and 4 brings two new topics for us to explore and learn from. Term 3 has already begun where we looked closely at our bodies and how we can stay healthy. Throughout the term we will have lots of visitors as we explore ‘Amazing Animals’. We will identify a variety of common animals, discover and compare their structure and what they need for survival.
Our furry, feathery and scaly animal visitors will cost a small amount and we are kindly asking for a £3 contribution towards the cost. These experiences will support the children’s scientific learning and development. During the final week of term 3 the children will receive a challenge to present their learning in our Amazing Animal Exhibition. Please join us on Friday 9th February at 2pm in the infant classes.
We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to watch some chicks hatch and then look after, please feel free to pop in and have a look as they grow. The hatching process will take 21 days from Wednesday 10th January.
In English, our focus is non-fiction writing and we will be discussing the question, ‘Should animals be kept in zoos?’
In maths our focus will be time and measurement including money, length and mass
Term 4 is a historical topic and is currently under planning, watch out for details later.
