Our Eastern Adventure continues this half term and will see us learning about life during the Shang Dynasty. We will look at the artefacts that tell archaeologists so much about life during this period in history. The clay will be out once more to enable the children to make their own terracotta warrior and oracle bone! For those of you interested in this period, some of the terracotta warriors are currently visiting Liverpool World Museum until October - I have provided a link below to the website for more information. In PE it's time to get moving for street dance! As if that wasn't enough, we will also be studying the Earth, Sun and Moon together with taking part in British Science Week - all in only 4 weeks and 4 days!
Meeting the ducklings!
We have been lucky enough to have duck eggs in school recently. They were placed in an incubator and withing 5 days,4 ducklings arrived! Years 4 and 5 met our new arrivals in the school hall this morning (Wednesday 28th March) - it's amazing how quiet 4 ducklings can keep 88 children!
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely christmas! This half term is going to be another busy one, with lots of fantastic learning planned. Our topic for the whole of the spring term is Eastern Adventures. We will be learning about Ancient China and the Shang Dynasty. This theme will flow into our English lessons, where the children will learn about the story that is depicted on Chinese Willow Pattern plates. Year 5's will complete their swimming lessons, whilst Year 4's will continue practising their athletic skills ready for our sports tournaments against other schools.
We have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons this term. As part of this topic, we have also been doing lots of creative art work. We have painted illuminated letters using watercolours, which we have made into calendars as well as making crosses out of clay. We are sure you will agree that they look amazing!
We had an amazing time today, as part of a reward for children who have continued to read at home this term. All the children (and staff) got involved and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Well done everyone who got to take part - keep reading!
We have been learning about Remembrance Day. We found out that we have a 2 minute silence, to remember all the soldiers who have died since WWI. This is held on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. We also learnt that poppies were the first flowers to grow on the battlefields after World War I. We made silhouette pictures by using watercolours to make a sunset. After that we used black paper to draw planes, poppies and crosses. They look really effective!
Autumn 1st Half
This half term we have been doing lots of work collaboratively. We have worked as a group to make decisions and reason. We have also presented our ideas to the rest of the class.
