A Bear Called paddington
The children have really enjoyed their topic all about Paddington. With a strong focus on Geography, they were able to consolidate their knowledge of continents and oceans. They also learnt about Paddington's home country of Peru. They were able to look at aerial footage of both South America and Braintree, identifying human and physical features.
They have completed some outstanding writing which has included stories, instructions and travel brochures. The Dolphins class have worked so hard on their handwriting and presentation this year, and this hard work has really paid off.
The children have continued to go from strength to strength in their maths learning. With a strong understanding of place value and number bonds to 10, they are ready for new learning challenges after Christmas.
