The theme this term is 'The Weather Forecast Is...' and we will be exploring this theme through our work. We will be using the story 'Wilbur and Weather Watcher' by Janet King and Rosemary Irons to explore objects, symbols and signs linked to the weather, clothing and activities. In Numeracy our rhyme is '5 Little Leaves'.
Class 2 News
The theme of 'The Weather Is...' runs across literacy, numeracy, creative arts, humanities and science/technology enabling the pupils to explore the weather within lots of sensory and experiential ways. This is facilitated through: rhyme, story and song; outside learning; switch technology and environmental control; tactile exploration of objects and materials; using our listening, olfactory and visual skills to attend, local and make choices or show preferences.
