What we are learning in the summer term:
Our Topic this term is: Water
Whale Song by Dyan Sheldon
And Tiddler by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
We will continue to: (include information about activities you will be doing and opportunities for communication and outdoor learning)
During the summer term Yellow Class will be exploring our topic –‘Water’. Our topic book will be ‘The Whale’s Song’. The text is a beautifully illustrated story about a little girl’s hopes, memory, dreams and the treatment of animals. The story will focus on feelings and emotions such as:- excitement, happiness and joy.
We will focus on Whales, listening to the sounds they make, how they interact with each other and explore their environment under the sea. The pupils will focus on the senses – what can be seen, heard, smelt, touched or tasted? We will study textures and patterns looking at fish, shells and plants. The pupils will explore sensory media to create pictures of Whales using paints, chalk and textures.
The topic links nicely with our Science Week activities this year that will also focus on the WATER Theme.
