It was lovely to see so many parents join me for our virtual "Meet the teacher" on Zoom. If you weren't able to make it don't worry, a copy of the presentation can be found at the bottom of this page.

Q4 Super Scientists

Q3 Read all about it!
During this Quarter we have been looking at lots of different authors and we have written pieces inspired by them.

We wrote our own poems in the style of "The sound collector" by Roger McGough.

Easter: We looked at the the events which happened during Holy Week. We started by acting out the story of Jesus' arrival on Palm Sunday. At Forest School we made our own Easter Garden's showing what it was like when Jesus was crucified.

Science: Animals and their habitats.

Q2 Colchester as a Garrison Town
We started our unit of work by looking at "Remembrance" and why it is important to Colchester. We visited Colchester Cemetery and laid a poppy wreath which we had made at Forest School. We paid our respects and remembered those who had lost their lives during conflicts.

Art in nature
We have been looking at the art work of the famous land artist Andy Goldsworthy. We made our own nature based art in the woodland.

Q1 Kendall and Beyond
This Quarter we will be exploring our local area starting with our school and venturing further afield to look at the wider community. We began our topic with our Sparkling Start. We went over to the Recreation Ground to look at the park gates. There are five gates, each depicting a different aspect of life in the New Town area of Colchester. We played a game of "I spy". How many different things can you spot incorporated in each gate?



We visited lots of different places in our local area to find out what we need in our community.
