Wingham Primary School

It’s all about the children

Term 5

This term we have been looking at the question ‘What makes Britain great?’  We have looked at the English author and Illustrator Oliver Jeffers.  We had some very naughty crayons from the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ come and mess up our classroom!  We had great fun writing letters and thinking about how the crayons must have felt.   

One morning we came into class to find that our chairs had quit and they left us a letter with all their complaints.  We had to write a letter of apology before we were able to sit on them again! We also looked at the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers and did some amazing collage work of the characters in the book.

For the rest of this term we are looking at Beatrix Potter and her favourite story – Peter Rabbit. We even had a rabbit come in and visit us and we made brochures to explain how to look after a rabbit. 

In maths we looked at length and height. We found out who is the shortest and who is the tallest member of Hawthorn class. We have also been looking at position and direction and have been giving each other instructions on how to move and how to turn. 

In Science we have been looking at animals including humans and we have had caterpillars in the class.  At the moment they are in their chrysalis and we are excitedly waiting for them to come out as butterflies.

Forest School continues to be one of our favourite sessions and we have made ears like Peter rabbit and have measured sticks linked to our maths as well as making homes for caterpillars.

In PE we have had Coach Simon teach us tennis skills, Wimbledon watch out!  Lucas won the PE cup for great listening and tennis skills.
