Street Detectives – Autumn 1
This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young.
Bounce – Autumn 2
Throw it, catch it, roll it, bounce it! BOING, BOING, BOING! Up and down and side to side, can you catch the bouncing ball? A great project all about sport and balls!
Muck, Mess and mixtures.- Spring 1
Let’s hold a ‘Messy Mixtures Morning’! Allow the children to experience a variety of weird and wonderful mixtures that they can feel with their hands and feet. Create messy mixtures from cornflour and water, paint, jelly, paste, shaving foam, body lotion, soap flakes and clay.
Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. Spring 2
We will visit a local castle, exploring its different parts. Find out how many towers it has, how many turrets and whether it has any secret tunnels or passages. How did the castle help defend the people living inside its walls?
Wriggle and Crawl –Summer 1
Make a visit to a woodland at Witley Court to observe and identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. Before the trip we will talk to the children about what they might expect to see and encourage them to come up with questions about different minibeasts and the environments they live in.
Beachcombers – Summer 2
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Do you? That’s good, because you’re about to become an expert beachcomber!
Head to your nearest beach to look for interesting and unusual objects, using your senses to spot, sniff and seek them out.
