Term 6 - Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
Over our final seven weeks before the long holiday, Metis class will be artists, historians and scientists. We will be improving our observational skills and using this to create a new landscape and a group piece of art with Pandora class. We will be visiting the Sea life Centre in Weymouth and challenging ourselves to do the best we can on sports day. We will also be thinking about next year and starting the transition period. If you child or yourselves have any questions do come in and have a chat.
Thursday 8th June: Oh we do like to be beside the seaside! Look at what we got up to at the Sea life Centre in Weymouth. Pictures by Mrs Cottles' group and Mrs Snowdon.

Well done Metis class, you were great ambassadors for Studley Green. You walked safely and respectfully to Southwick Country Park, you looked at the animals and formed great questions. Well done you should be very proud.
Term 5 -Did old Macdonald have a farm?
This term we will continue to learn about different types of animal and use our scientific knowledge to categorise and investigate. We will be learning to tell the story of the Little red hen and will use it to help us write our own animal stories. Metis class will be using all their phonic knowledge to read words and continue to be great readers. Please use the phoneme cards in their book bags to support their learning. It really makes a difference. We will also use our geographical skills to explore the local environment and visit the animals at Southwick country park.
Jonathan's Jungle Roadshow
WOW! We have had a wonderful day learning about unusual animals. We have been great scientists: asking questions, being calm and using our senses to observe. Please talk to them about what we have been learning and what they think and congratulate them for being brave, calm and showing respect for animals.

We had great weather for our walk to Trowbridge Museum. Metis class learnt about how toys have changed over time. The first activity taught Metis class that Victorian children liked to dress up and part of this was to wear a mask. We look at serveral different one then made our own. They will be on display in school very soon!
In activity 2 we played Twelves, Marble run and bagatelle (a wooden board game) where we practiced our number skills while keeping score.
In activity 3 Metis class used their knowledge of adjectives to describe toys from long ago without seeing them. Sassy was very good at this!
Our final activity was finding out all about which toys were popular in Victorian times and comparing them with todays toys. We were very lucky because we were able to give a very old teddy bear a cuddle!
Metis class were marvelous on our visit out and had great fun.Thank you Trowbridge Museum.
What is your toy's story?
Our topic question this term is 'What is your toy's story?' We will focus our learning on old and new toys and what they are made of.
