Terms 1 and 2

What do you do with an idea?


Welcome back to an exciting new school year! Our whole school focus for the first two weeks is based on the book 'What do you do with an idea?'

We all had many new ideas for the year ahead and for the future.

Look at our Court-de-Wyck apple tree growing outside the Nuture Room for our own, very special ideas. Which of these ideas will take shape and grow in the future? We can't wait to find out!



Our Learning Theme for terms 1 and 2 is...


Can one person make a difference?


Our first text is The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. We will be writing letters from the snail as he travels around the world. Then we will be writing non-chronological reports. We will soon be having little visitors in our classroom who will be living in their own special habitat. Watch this space to find out who! We will be learning about explorers in history and geography-just like our friend snail.

It's going to be an exciting couple of terms in Goldfinch Class!
