The Magic Porridge Pot.

This term we have been learning ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’ which is set in Germany – in our retelling at least! We chose this story because one of our pupils has moved to Germany and two we have two classmates who have lived there before. Some parents who have lived in Germany are coming into school to talk about their experiences.

We are linking the story to our history topic. We are learning about the artist Paul Klee and children have created artworks using colour to express emotion in a way inspired by his work. Our science topic is materials, we are investigating the qualities of different materials and choosing the best material to insulate a bowl and keep the magic porridge warm.

In maths we are looking at position and direction. We are also learning about money. It would be very helpful if you could help the children learn about money by counting coins to pay for small purchases and talking about change.
