Spring Term 2013 Mrs Taylor/Mrs Fletcher

The children and teachers are all enjoying our new topic this term 'The Rainforest'.
Our Rainforest environments are progressing; we have added trees, cheetahs, frogs, snakes, butterflies and birds so far. We are all looking forward to the visit from ZooLab!
In science we have been using our senses to explore the rainforest. We are have already learnt about our sense of sight and touch and can't wait to find out about hearing, smell and especially taste! We have investigated whether shiny objects can only be seen if a source of light is shining on them and investigated whether our finger prints are unique. 
In literacy we have been writing information leaflets about rainforest animals and making posters about endangered animals and learning to use WOW words to make our writing more interesting. 
In numeracy we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, counting up and back to 100 and practising our doubles and number bonds to 10 and 20. We have been practising with Numicon to add and subtract and times numbers. We are also learning about 2D and  3D shapes and how to tell the time.
During E-safety Week (4th February) we learnt about how to be safe when using the internet. We all understand the importance now of not sharing personal information on the internet such as our name and surname and our address. Instead we made up nicknames for ourselves! We also decided that it was not a good idea to 'chat' in 'chat rooms' on websites like Moshi Monsters with people as we do not know for sure who these people are as we can not see them.
