Meerkats Class

Welcome to Meerkats class page.

This term Year 1 Meerkats are exploring the topic of Indvaders and settlers, focusing on Pocahontas . We have been learning about her way of life and how it is different to ours. We have researched what types of houses her tribe lived in and how they developed. We designed and made Native American head dresses and totem poles.

For our marvellous middle we watched the Disney version of the film. This will enable us to continue our research and compare to the real life facts we have discovered.

We have recalled and sequenced Pocanhontas' story, written poems and compared the geography of our country and where she grew up.

This half term we will be writing a diary entry and a letter, imagining how Pocahontas felt on her journey to a new world.Click on this link to sumdog for Maths practise -

Reception Meerkats topic is ourselves.

We have named body parts and counted them, learnt about our senses and which body part we use and talked about heathy and unhealthy foods. The children have drawn themelves and practised writing their names. We used the apples growing in our outside area to make apple crumble.

Still to come..... Designing a healthy meal and making fruit kebabs.
