This term our project question is: "What is the best way for us to be happy?". We will be thinking about what really makes us happy, how and why. We will be learning about 'The wonderful wild' which entails understanding about different animals and where they live. We will also be learning about 'The seaside', which entails understanding about what happens at the seaside. We will be exploring both of these focuses through the use of Performing Arts; Music, Art and Drama. We will be thinking about how we can communicate our ideas and thoughts through art, demonstrate our ideas and thoughts through drama and perform our thoughts and ideas through music.

Week commencing 14th September
F2 have loved learning our focus story 'Owl Babies' in our Literacy lessons. They have been introduced to a new tool which is a story map and have even followed this story map to perform the story of 'Owl Babies'. Following this, F2 have learnt a new skill called 'Innovating', which means to change. They decided to innovate the story of 'Owl Babies' to the story of 'Cat Babies'.
F2 have blown me away with their understanding of 'matching' in maths. Not only are they confident in matching different objects/pictures, but they are also able to explain very clearly why two things match, why they don't match and how you could change the objects/pictures to make them match. We followed the story of 'Monkey Puzzle' to understand the term 'matching' and F2 loved following this story by playing a game of snap!
