Spring 1

Our School & Community


Our topic for this half term is 'Our School & Community'. We will be learning about the area that we live in, including how to write our home and school addresses as part of our Geography topic. Our first core book is 'The Jolly Postman' and we will learn to write a letter, including beginning with an address and we will discuss how letters and parcels are delivered. In Science, we will learn about different habitats and we will explore the plants and animals that live in the habitats within our school environment. In D&T, we will design and make our own postal van that moves on wheels and we will also have the chance to practise colour mixing to paint our vehicles.

Making a Postal Van


This week, we have enjoyed learning how to make a moving vehicle. We had to design, make and evaluate our van using the letter that we received from the Jolly Postman. This told us that our vans had to be strong and stable enough to carry his letters and parcels on his delivery rounds. Take a look at our learning!



In PE, we are beginning to learn different skills in gymnastics. We had a go at travelling across different pieces of equipment in different ways and we practised jumping off equipment, landing safely. Have a look at our photos!

Please have a look at this overview for ideas on how to support your child's learning at home.

Care for oneself; Care for others; Care for the environment.
