Mountbatten class have come back from the Easter break refreshed and rejuvenated ready for the Summer term!

This term our topic is called ‘Mess, Much and Mixture’ with an environmental focus. We launched our topic with a range of practical messy, mucky and mixing activities. We got messy making large scale sensory art with Lindsey, practiced mixing ingredients to make rocky road cakes and smoothies with Amy, and we got mucky making pine cone bird feeders with Sam.

We were very fortunate to have a visit from the Fire Service, who spoke to us about the importance of safety on the roads and as a pedestrian and we visited their truck to pick out all the hazards in the home. We even got to dress up in their uniforms!

We are looking forward to lots more hands-on learning opportunities throughout the term, including clearing up water pollution, looking at pollination and constructing bee hotels, getting out to the beach and helping to keep it clean. In English we are looking at modern stories with an environmental message and planning to write our own eco stories.

In addition to our regular lessons we have an RE day looking at Hope and the Buddhist tradition of prayer flags as well as two foreign language days; focusing on Spanish and La Tomatina!

It’s going to be an action-packed term and we can’t wait!
