This term in Geography we will be learning the names of the 5 Oceans. We have been using the 5 oceans song to help us learn the names of the oceans and order them from largest to smallest. We visited our world map in the playground to look at the locations of the oceans and then had a go at placing them in the correct position back in the classroom on the map.

In Geography, we will also be learning about physical and human features. Physical features are features that are natural and were not created by humans such as trees, cliffs and rivers. Human features are features that were created by humans such as buildings, roads, and cities. 

How many physical and human features can you see in the picture?

Field Work


We have observed the weather for a week and recorded the temperature and rainfall in a weather diary. We found that it rained once and the warmest temperature was 13 degrees Celsius.

The four Countries of The United Kingdom.


We have looked at the four countries of The United Kingdom and identified England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland  on a map.

We have used Google Earth to look at our locality and find our school and other local landmarks.

We have learnt about compass directions and labelled them on a diagram. 


In science, we have been learning about the different animal groups. Amphibians, Reptiles, Mammals, Birds, Fish and Insects. We have looked at the different features that make an animal belong to a particular group and categorised them. 

We have also learnt about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. 




We have been on a science walk and looked for evergreen and deciduous trees. We could only find one evergreen in the infant grounds. There are lots of deciduous trees though. 


Can you categorise any of these animals into the animal groups?

Spring 2 science 

During the spring term we have been looking at the properties of materials. The children had fun exploring different materials and using the properties to describe them using words such as flexible, hard, soft, rigid, bendy. Can you go on a material hunt at home and find a material that belongs to each property? 

We have also had fun taking part in a scientific experiment to find out which materials are waterproof and which are not. 

Mr Veall also visited us for science week and showed us the materials he uses for his plumbing. We had fun watching and helping him cut and bond materials together. 

Science week


In computing, we have learnt all about different types of technology. We have learnt the names of the different parts of a desktop computer and laptop. We have learnt how to logon to our Google accounts and we have accessed Google Classroom. 

We have learnt about algorithms and gave our partner instructions to draw a monster. 

We have also been learning how to stay safe online. 


In art, we have been looking at the artist Sophie Munns and how she uses natural materials to create printed pieces of art. We started by going on a walk to find natural things we could use for printing. We then experimented printing with our natural objects. 


We have looked at Kurt Schwitters' work and we liked that he uses discarded goods for his art. We used scrap paper to create Rainbow Fish collages.


During Remembrance Week, we looked at lots of poppy paintings and drawings. We created our own poppy pictures and were inspired by Gustav Klimt's work.



Natural printing

Spring 2 Art

In art this term we have looked at different artists who use natural materials to inspire their artwork. Paul Cezanne, Orla Kiely and Sophie Munns. Paul Cezanne painted still life paintings of fruit and Orla Kiely used fruit shapes for her printing. We practised drawing in the style of Paul Cezanne and then created printing pattern in the style of Orla Kiely and Sophie Munns. 


In music, we have been learning about the pulse and beat of a piece of music and practised moving to the pulse and beat. 

We enjoyed learning the song Hey You! We used the Glockenspiels to play along to the beat of the song. 


We have had a new musician of the month 'Nina Simone' and have enjoyed listening to her song 'Feeling Good'. 

Spring 2 music 

This term our artist of the month was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. We enjoyed listening to a few of his songs and discussing which was our favourite. 

This term our topic for music has been Dawn from sea interludes and we have enjoyed listening to the song Dawn from sea by Benjamin Britten, we used actions to represent the different parts of the music.  The rippling waves, the seagulls flying in the sky and the big crashing waves. 

We also made up some rhyming phrases for our own sea shanty Down by the Bay. Have you ever seen a llama wearing pyjamas down by the bay? 

Benjamin Britten : Four Sea Interludes : No.1 Dawn. Photographs.

"Dawn", the first of the "Four Sea Interludes" extracted by Benjamin Britten from his opera "Peter Grimes", is played in this recording by the Ulster Orchestra, conducted by Vernon Handley. The photographs, taken from the internet, all show the coast of Suffolk at dawn.


Why Do we Wear Poppies?

In History, we have learnt about timelines and we created a timeline of our own lives.

We went on to learn about Remembrance and answered our big question:

Why do we wear poppies?

We learnt about Edith Cavell and we discussed if she was a hero or a traitor. 



Have Toys Changed Over The Past 80 Years?

The children were tasked with asking their grandparents what their favourite toy was when they were a child. They also asked what that toy was made of.

We compared the grandparents answers with our favourite toys today and we found that there were lots of simililarites with lego and dolls being firm favourites. We also found that electronic toys are much more popular now. We explored why this might be.


We played with lots of modern and old toys (including a Victorian penny farthing) and spoke about their differences and similarities. We concluded that toys have changed but they have always been fun! 


Spring 2 history

Do all heroes wear capes? 

In history we have been learning about the significance of the actions of Martin Luther King, Florence Nightingale and Rosa Parks while answering the question Do all Heroes wear Capes? 

Design and Technology

We have designed and created an 'under the sea' moving picture. 



This term we have learnt the story of creation and created a stained glass window depicting one day of the story. We then sequenced the whole story of creation.

We have looked at the bible stories, Noah's Ark, Adam and Eve and Abraham. We thought about what these stories taught us such as how to treat the world and each other with kindness and trust. 

We have also learnt about different celebrations of the Christian faith such as Christmas, Easter and the Pentecost.
