Spring term in Year 1 and 2
Time travelling .... at the seaside!
This term we are learning about the seaside and comparing our holidays nowadays
to those in Victorian times. We will begin this topic with a visit from the Somerset
Museum Service where we will be shown real historical artefacts and have the chance to dress up in Victorian outfits.
Inspired by the Punch and Judy shows, we will design and create our own puppets, and then write a story which we can act out with our puppets.
Our Science and DT work will be linked to our seaside theme. We will be testing materials for their waterproof qualities. In DT, we will be investigating pulleys.
Because the children have shown such an interest in sea creatures, we will take the time to research this area as well as studying the human and physical features of coastal areas.
Weather permitting, we will be organising a trip to visit a Victorian pier at the end of this term.
We have also introduced Fairy Tale Fridays - pop in and see the fairy tale castles in our reading areas.
