Last term much of our Literacy was based around The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. Over the Easter holidays Norden Farm in Maidenhead are showing a performance of ‘The lighthouse Keeper’s Cat’.
Please see the Norden Farm website for details if you are looking for something fun to do over the holidays.
‘Hamish is the lighthouse keeper’s cat. He overhears Mr and Mrs Grinling say he’s too plump to catch the lighthouse mice, so he runs away. But he is scared of everything he meets – like cows and bicycles and screaming babies! Hamish’s hilarious antics finally lead him up a tree where he is trapped. Can he find his way back home? Will he ever eat Mrs Grinling’s delicious pie again? And will the mice help him?’
Next term we are studying Australia. We will look at the geography of the country, its native animals, the people and their artwork. Children are welcome to bring in items relevant to this topic on their ‘show and tell’ day if they wish.
As part of our Science and Literacy topics we will look nocturnal animals. We will look at many of these animals in some detail. Children are invited to bring in books, carry out their own research etc, in preparation for this topic.
