St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 2

At the end of Term 1 we started our new enquiry  'How has my school changed?'. This will be continued into Term 2. 


The enquiry began with the children finding a time capsule buried in our school playground. In the time capsule there was a message from Mary who attended St Anne's in 1937! Mary explains what the school was like during the war.


We will be Historians to explore how the school and play has changed over time. As historians, we will explore many different sources to find out about the past such as artefacts, videos, internet and photographs.

We will have a visit from a real historian as well as visit from two other people that have attended St Anne's since Mary; Mrs Harris in the 60's (our school cleaner) and Mrs B in the 90's. At the end of the enquiry, the challenge will be for the children to create their own time capsule to bury in their own garden. We will celebrate the end of this enquiry by looking at pictures of the children burying their time capsules in their gardens (so please send your pictures in to our class e-mail addresses).


As Author Writers we will practising identifying and writing nouns and proper nouns and then using the conjunction 'and' to join two sentences together. These skills will help the children to write their own message to future children to go into their own time capsule. 


After this enquiry we will move onto 'What do Artists do?'. 

We look forward to beginning the enquiry ‘What do artist’s do?’  where we will explore a range of artists and different art techniques including printing, stencilling and painting. We are excited to explore the work of Liane Tancock who works at our school as part of our learning.

We will celebrate the enquiry by creating a very special piece of pointillism artwork which we will display in an art gallery for you to come and enjoy. We will keep you updated on a date for this closer to the time. 


We also look forward to a trip to our local art studio's 'Bricks' at St Anne's House. 


With this enquiry we will continue to develop our skills as authors by writing sentences that are accurately punctuated with capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and application of our GPCS (sounds).

We will continue to focus on spelling red words (common exception words) correctly in our writing.

We will be working towards writing our own narratives, with a beginning, middle and ending.


We look forward to another busy and exciting term!
