Spring 2019

Zebra class have really enjoyed learning about our topic ‘The Inventor’s Shed’. We have collected, tested and connected a range of materials including learning about how to safely use a range of tools (with close adult supervision!) including hammering nails into wooden boards and sawing lengths of wood.

Included in our many highlights this term has been dressing up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day including Peter Rabbit, Harry Potter and Tigger among others.

We have also loved our swimming sessions as well as having the opportunity towards the end of term to visit one of our favourite local natural environments ‘Hundred Acre Woods’.  In addition we have visited a variety of different locations and taken part in a number of activities within Queen Elizabeth country park as part of our weekly skills for life trips.  Particular  highlights have been the assault course, the new adventure playground, long walks and even a couple of picnics.

We have also had great fun on our weekly horse riding trips and developed our confidence and increased our independence mounting the horses.

We greatly enjoyed arts week creating both 3D sculptures and 2D pieces of art work including collages, paintings and drawings using a variety of mediums all based around Zebras. It was great to welcome so many people to see our gallery of artwork.

Everybody in Zebra class is very excited about next terms topic called ‘Plant a rainbow’ which we hope to be spending lots of time outside planting seeds and growing a range of plants and vegetables along with learning about general care and maintenance of natural habitats including the schools environmental area and allotment.
