Autumn Term 2018
We have made lots of progress in our Maths, learning about place value and 3 digit numbers and learning how to do column addition and subtraction. In English, we really enjoyed our focus text, Into the Forest, and had fun using musical instruments to recreate the storm. We have also learned how to write newspaper reports and linked these to our Celts and Romans topic, focusing particularly on reporting Boudicca's last battle. We have been working hard on our presentation and learning to use cursive writing in all our written work.
Last year 2017-18...
We loved our Summer term topic, 'What's on the Inside?', learning about our amazing human body, including what it means to be human and naming and locating bones. Our friendly skeleton 'Mr Bones' became a fascinating member of our class!
We have really enjoyed learning about Ancient Egypt in our topic, 'Down the River Nile',
finding out all about the amazing engineering behind the pyramids and the importance of the River Nile, as well as exploring hieroglyphs and making Ancient Egyptian death masks. We had a great visit to the Bristol Museum, where we explored the Ancient Egyptian gallery and participated in a workshop handling different artefacts. We also had a fantastic enrichment day to end our theme and all dressed up as Ancient Egyptians. It was great fun competing in teams for the best wrapped mummy and tasting food that the Ancient Egyptians would have eaten.
Our Book Week at the beginning of March gave us lots of opportunities to focus on reading and discover new authors. We enjoyed a range of activities, including: a 'Where's Wally?' hunt; a workshop with author, Jon Blake; dressing up for World Book Day and holding our own poetry bee - well done to our class winner, Ava!
