Year 6 Autumn Enquiry

Year 6 enjoy being Active 15 leaders. They help to make up the exercise routines and demonstrate the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercises. The whole of key stage 2 now enjoy the benefits of 15 minutes’ vigorous exercise each morning before they settle down to a hard day’s learning.

We have also enjoyed making our puppet theatres using our skills to design and create a working puppet theatre. The children have then had to adapt a playscript for Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. The project culminates with a special performance to their Reception buddies.

The term finished with our traditional Christmas parties when it was good to play some games and enjoy some delicious party food.

What a busy start to the year!

Year 1 Animals Enquiry

This half term we finished our work learning about animals and finding the answer to the question ‘What do animals need to be happy and healthy?’

Our enquiry finished with our Habitat Exhibition. Every worked hard on designing and making a habitat for their chosen animal. They also did some amazing writing sharing all that they had learnt about their animal. The exhibition went really well and it was great to see so many people coming to see the finished products.

Year 4 Autumn Enquiry

Year 4 have been learning about electric circuits and their work culminated in designing and building a Christmas tree decoration using LEDs (and some unauthorised motorised buggies).

Year 3 Autumn Enquiry

Year 3 have been Ancient Greeks this term! We have learned loads about why we still remember the Greeks and what they have done that still impacts our lives today. We had a Greek making morning where we made clay pots and theatre masks. We have also learnt about the Ancient Olympics and gave a series of lively presentations to decide “Athens vs. Sparta – Which City State Is Best?”

We had lots of fun helping to run the Children In Need fair in the hall, where we had games and cakes on offer. We also enjoyed Pudsey maths.

In our Geography enquiry lessons we have been learning all about our European neighbours. We took part in a team challenge to research a European country and produce a poster showing what we had learnt.

Year 2 Autumn Enquiry

In our enquiry this work this term we have been learning about plastic pollution as part of our science work on materials. During this enquiry we have learnt about different properties of materials and why materials are chosen for specific purposes.We discovered how plastic is damaging the environment and is a threat to the ocean. We have written letters to all our local supermarkets to encourage them to use less plastic. We enjoyed performing our Christmas play at the church and showing all our fantastic work at our homework exhibition.

Nursery Autumn 2018

We started our new year together by thinking about our families and finding out about each other by sharing our All About Me books.

We loved listening to the story Owl Babies and thinking about this family. We found out about owls and made our own!

We moved onto a Colours theme with lots of exciting activities.

We read Blue Kangaroo books and made blueberry muffins. We hopped into green week, making frogs and green jelly. We then had a fun and informative visit from a firefighter during red week.

After half term we thought about Autumn and all the changes. We went on a walk and made our own Autumn hangings. We made delicious apple crumbles with organic apples.

Next we learnt about hedgehogs and hibernation. We made clay and bread hedgehogs.

We spent time in our woodland area making dens and sitting in them.

We have loved getting ready for Christmas, performing our Nativity play and making beautiful cards with plenty of sparkle and glitter!

Another wonderful term together.

In year 4 we have been busy creating imaginary worlds as settings for a story we are writing. These boys are drawing a large map of their world.
