Summer term 2
16th June - Puddle Theme
Today in Plum Tree, the children have been learning all about the season of summer and what the weather is like. They have been making comparisons to the weather in Winter. During our lesson today, we created a puddle outside and have observed what has happened to it throughout the day. The children made predictions saying, "it will dry up because of the sun".
When they noticed the puddle had gone, the children used words including shrunk, disappeared and vanished - Miss Gaskin was amazed at the fantastic words being used. Some children also chose to write about what they observed.
7th June - Wow Day - By the Sea Picnic
We kick started our 'By the Sea' topic for this half term with a delicious picnic in the school hall. We had lots of beach decorations and even made some fantastic summer themed crowns to wear!
