Our Local Community
What a fun half term it has been learning all about the story of the Billy Goats Gruff. The children have designed their own trolls and have looked closely at different bridges to find the best one for their troll to live under. They have visited the local stream to think about the best way to build a bridge and then used this discussion to use a range of resources to build their own bridges. The wooden blocks and foam bricks were a very popular choice! Both classes had a great time walking over the M3 bridge and couldn’t believe how big it was! Linked to bridges, the children have learnt about the artist Monet and had a chance to recreate his famous piece “bridge over water lillies.”
The children have enjoyed writing and learning to recognise coins!
Also this term, the children have been thinking a lot about people in the community who help us. They had a surprise visit from a policeman who answered lots of their questions. They even got to try on the police uniform which was very exciting!
