We have been learning lots about the sea and the creatures that live inside it!
This week we learnt how the stones and sand move when the tide comes in and experimented with our own tides outside. We also were able to carry out observational drawings and learn about the different parts of a fish too!
We had a fantastic day over at the Marsh with 3 other schools, the children participated in a variety of different sports. There were sports leaders from local clubs including golf, tennis, hockey and cricket!
We had an amazing school trip to Canterbury to see the Snail and the Whale.
The children very much enjoyed the theatre show, joined in with all the songs and story telling parts. They were incredibly well behaved, and we were really proud of them.
The second part of our trip was to the Templemen Library. We were shown around in groups to see the vast number of books they have, the different areas within the library and then we got to take out books using a special computer, and see how they were sent back!
Term 6 is an exciting and busy time in Year One, our topic this term is WaterWorld and will be linked with our T4W text ‘The Snail and the Whale’. We are all very excited about our trip on June 29th to see the Snail and the Whale at the Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury. Through our topic the children will be learning about the water that surrounds us, the oceans and how important water is for our bodies.
In RE we’ll continue to learn about Judaism and our school value for this term is Truthfulness.
In Maths we will be learning about fractions, money, time, and developing our number skills to 100.

Whilst looking at buildings this term we went for a walk around New Romney.
The children had the challenge to find out if there were more detached, semi-detached or terraced houses in and around the High Street, we looked at the different types of buildings and looked at what they were made out of.
