Spring 1

We will begin this half term with three weeks of Science! Across these three weeks we will focus on looking at changes  in order to develop and refine our scientific enquiry skills.
Through carrying out investigations we will practice asking questions, making predictions, testing out our ideas and observing changes from which we can draw conclusions.
There will be lot’s of opportunities to get stuck in and to get messy with our focus on Science also providing lot’s of stimulus for sensory play and Art.

After three weeks of Scientific exploration we will begin our topic of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. We will be thinking lot’s about magic and love!
We will write spells, potion recipes, wedding invitations and love poems as well as hosting Greek food tasting sessions and holding magical fairy dances in the garden.

In Maths we will be looking at addition, subtraction, halving and sharing, capacity and doubles. All will be looked at through our focus on Science and ‘A midsummer nights dream’ to make sure our learning is hands on and meaningful.
