Welcome to Lilac class

Lilac writing 2We have had a brilliant time in Lilac Class. We started our year by becoming woodland explorers. We learned all about the kinds of animalLilac writings and plants that live in our woodlands and experimented with using different liquids to grow plants – with some interesting but very smelly results! We were very surprised to capture an unwanted visitor in our woodland walk. We were expecting to see foxes or hedgehogs but instead we saw a…gruffalo! Luckily it disappeared shortly afterwards without causing too much damage.

We enjoyed finding out about all the animals that are up and about while we are asleep! In the spring term we became story tellers. We wrote our own versions of traditional tales and made puppets to retell the stories. We filmed our performance and invited our friends and family to come and watch. We loved learning about castles and particularly enjoyed our visit to Bodiam Castle.  As part of our learning we also designed, painted and wrote about dragons. During the summer term we enjoyed learning about the amazing wildlife that lives in our oceans. We also found out lots about lighthouses.
