Our topic for Term 2 is...
As we come towards the festive season, the children will be learning about different celebrations from around the world. We will begin the term with Bonfire night; the children will be learning to write poems about fireworks and about the story of The Gunpowder Plot.
Our story-telling focus is 'The Owl who was afraid of the dark' by Jill Tomlinson. The children will practice writing their own diary pieces as the main character 'Plop' and focusing on writing for a particular audience through first-person.
Later on in the term we will be visiting the Oxford Playhouse to watch 'Jack and the Beanstalk', last year it was a huge success and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves so we are hoping that it will be just as good this year.
For our whole school topic this term we are focusing on 'One World', encouraging the children to understand the importance of looking after the planet we live in and all of the living things on it.
Our topic will be kicked off with an assembly to call on all of the Eco warriors out there and create an Eco council to help set up new initiatives and support others with their learning. We will also be taking part in Bollywood dancing to help us understand more about other cultures and how India is linked to our topic.
Years One and Two will have a 'Litter picking day' around the week of 2nd October, where we will don our safety gear and go in search of rubbish around our school area. The aim of this activity is to consolidate the children's learning about recyclable materials and how much the environment is affected by litter that is dropped. We will also hopefully see the Biffa truck come to collect our litter on Friday 6th October!
Friday 20th October is a HUGE day for all of Willowcroft as we hope to run a 'Recycled' fashion show where the children have designed an outfit for their class teacher that is made entirely out of recycled materials (keep your eyes peeled for pictures!).
