Spring 1 Under the Sea

Under the Sea


This term has a geography-led focus, naming, locating and identifying the names of the different continents and oceans of the world, as well as the seas and ocean that surround the United Kingdom.


In science we will be learning what animals need to survive and to stay well, before diving under the waves, to compare survival needs and habitats found underwater, to the mainly land-based habitats we looked at earlier this year. We will consider how our changing planet is impacting the survival needs and biodiversity of these amazing biomes, supported by investigations involving buoyancy and how long it take to dissolve different materials, to add to our thinking of what might put these ocean habitats at risk.


In art, we will be exploring and appreciating the work of Georgia O’Keefe and using her ideas of how to capture aspects of the natural world in a painting, to showcase our own perceptions of sea life. Children’s artwork will be available for sale in support of the Marine Conservation Society.

Save our oceans! 


Gazelle have been inspired through their quest for knowledge about the oceans this term and feel passionate about the small changes that could be easily achieved to help make a difference to our oceans and planet. 

Gazelle's ocean artwork is up for sale! 


We have been working hard on our watercolour skills this term, inspired by the work of artist Georgia O'Keeffe, who presented her work using abstract blocks of shaded colour. 


In order to raise money for the Marine Conservation Society to support their work in preserving the world's ocean habitats, we would like to offer our paintings out to our parents to buy for £4 each. They will come in a card frame, ready to be framed and put on show at home or given as a gift. 


In the meantime, please enjoy our gallery of colourful sea creatures below.

Cookathon is here! 


Gazelle Class represented England in the school cookathon this year.  The children cooked toad in the hole with a side of fresh vegetables and onion gravy, followed by apple crumble and custard. They did really well with their weighing, mixing and slicing skills and were delighted to eat the crumble after the judging was done!
