Our learning

 

Spring term

This term our topic is the Stone Age, including the Bronze and Iron Age. We will be learning how people lived at that time and how they developed. It is also a great opportunity to think about where we learn about these people and what sources we can use to find out about their lives.

February

Amazingly, we had snow this month! This was a good chance for us to learn about what causes the seasons. Here is a picture of us out in the cold!

 

In English this term we have learnt about Non-chronological reports. To start the topic we learnt a report about a Stone Monster. To help our learning we made models of Stone Monsters.

December

Lots have been happening this month! December is always a busy time of year. We have had our whole school nativity, Christmas disco and even a visit from Father Christmas! Here are some photos of the highlights.

 

October

Today we had a fantastic visit from Carymoor Recycling centre. Karen came in to talk to us about how we can help our environment. Ks1 became Eco pirates and Ks2 looked at the waste in their lunchboxes. It was a fantastic morning with lots of fun singing and activities. Thank you for visiting us!

 

Today is National Poetry day. We worked together to perform The Owl and the Pussy-cat. Some of the Year Fours read a piece of a poem they had enjoyed during Guided Reading.

       

 

For our instruction writing wow starter we made Trench cake. This is cake that would have been made during World War 1 and then sent to the soldiers on the front line. Most of us liked it as it was lemon flavored and filled with raisins.

HARVEST TIME!

 

Today we celebrated Harvest with harvest activities. We made pictures using leaves from the outside area and picked the apples from our apple tree. They were sweet and juicy.
