Spring Term 2019
This term our topic is Houses and Homes. We are very excited to be learning about the development of Houses, from the Stone Age all the way to the modern day. We have already made our own papercraft Stone Age Village and learnt all about the development of farming. This half term we are also learning about houses and cultures from all over the world and are learning about the stories of the Trickster spider Anansi!
In our science lessons we are learning all about Temperature and keeping warm. We are investigating how to keep things cool or warm for longer and are designing our own experiments!
Our Class Blog- Spring 1
Our Class Blog Autumn Term
So far this term we have written about how to keep our pets happy and healthy, learnt all about Alexander Graham Bell and the invention of the telephone and had a go at designing a car of the future!
We have also been exploring seasonal changes and enjoyed an Autumn nature walk. We were lucky enough to have a visit from a pop-up Planetarium and have travelled back in time to be Newspaper reporters at the Rainhill Trials!
We loved our trip to the National Railway Museum in York. it helped us put our learning into context and we even got to see what The Rocket looked like!
We have PE on a Monday and a Friday. Please ensure that PE kits remain in school throughout the week so that the children can access this provision.
On a Friday this term we are lucky enough to be working on our Swimming at Penrith Leisure Center. We need to remember to bring our swimming costumes, our towels and our goggles!
Home learning is encouraged and we always love to see what the children are up to. We have many opportunities for show and tell throughout the week.
Spellings are given out on a Friday morning and tested the following week.
