Welcome to Term 1 Earth Class, I can't believe that we are back to September again - where did the summer break go? We are really looking forward to being back in class, hearing all your stories and achieving lots of learning! We have lots of roles and responsibilities to organise and most exciting of all we are not in rows anymore!!!!
This term we are going to be learning about Mexico and we are as always going to have too much fun!
Lots of love - The Earth Class Team xx

Our first two weeks!
Here we are!
During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!
