Going for Gold!


Out Autumn term theme Going for Gold, was based on our Ancient Greece topic.  This was a great start to the year, with children enjoying their journey back in time to discover fascinating facts about this period of history.  I was particularly impressed during our homework showcase afternoon where children shared what they had found out and made at home to support our topic.


During autumn, children also learned about electricity in science and healthy eating in DT.  Everyone enjoyed designing and making healthy sandwiches using the skills of peeling, grating, slicing and spreading. 

Angry Planet!


We are currently learning about natural disasters that happen all around the world.  We are looking forward to a visit from the Freshwater Theatre Company where they will delver their 'Quest for... Earthquakes and Volcanoes' session.  In March we are planning a visit to Park Bridge to learn about volcanoes with a local geologist.  In the meantime in school, we are enjoying role playing scenes from 'Hurricane' by David Weisner and writing our own hurricane warning leaflets, using watercolour to create volcano pictures and creating our own volcano dances too.  Watch this space for further updates!
