November Update

We have had an exciting start to our Autumn Term 2. Our new topic is The Enchanted Woodland. We kick started our topic off with a visit to the woods that are located within our school site. We searched for minibeasts and looked at different types of trees. We took tree rubbings and even found some fungi growing.

In our English lessons we have focused on non-fiction texts including our class text 'Hansel and Gretel' and created factfiles to make a class book. In Maths we have practised subtraction to finish off our addition and subtraction unit. 

Diwali is a Hindu celebration celebrated in the month of November and we have been learning all about this festival that lasts over 5 days. We even made our own Diva Lamps which we will be decorating in the next few weeks.
