Our Project - Spring Term 2021

     This term our project question is 'What is bigger than me? 

We will start by exploring animals and the African Continent.  We will look at zoos and explore the characteristics, features, size, colour and shape of the animals we might see in them.  We will be going on a virtual trip to Chester Zoo.  The children will start to categorise the animals and look at where they can be found in the world.

In the second half of the Spring Term we will look at the largest living things in the world today, the blue whale and those from the past, dinosaurs.  At the end of the term we will also exploring the Christian celebtration of Easter.

Our first book will be ‘Handa's Surprise". 

We will adapt our Role Play area into a zoo and will explore acting out the story.  We will also use this story as our Talk For Writing text.  The children will perform the story using actions, create story maps and change their stories making their own versions.  

One of the stories we will be focussing on for the first half term is "Handa's Surprise".
