Spring Term - The Wizard of Oz

This term all of our learning is going to be inspired by The Wizard of Oz! We have already been working hard to transform our classroom in to a wonderful Oz themed learning environment. 

Keep looking at our regular website updates to see where our magical learning journey has taken us this term!  Here's a sneak peek at where our learning journey is going to take us throughout the project.

Week 1

WOW! What a fantastic start to the new term!

We have started our learning journey by learning all about Kansas and identifying where Kansas is on a map. We talked about the type of weather there can be in Kansas and learnt all about Cyclones and Tornadoes. The children then compared the weather in Kansas to the weather in the UK.

The children have also spent time identifying adjectives and using adjectives in sentences to describe some of the characters from The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s house and Munchkin town.

The children have begun learning about colouring mixing and spent time making colours darker and lighter all in preparation to produce some comparison paintings of Dorothy’s house and Munchkin town, using their descriptions as inspiration.
