In the Summer Term we are currently looking at Ancient Egypt and Space. The children have been writing their own Egyptian myths and have really gotten into the idea of mummification - which we will be learning more about! Some of the children produced some fantastic projects about Space recently and in our classroom we have our very own solar system on display which you are welcome to come and see!
In English the children last term looked at an overcoming the monster story called Beowulf, they wrote their own stories which as you can see in our photos were incredible to read. We also looked at the narrative poem 'The Highwayman' the children wrote some of their own tragedies based on this, which hopefully you've been able to enjoy at home!
The children are currently attending swimming at Plymouth Life Centre and will be doing so for the next three weeks. They need to ensure they have their swimming costumes, a towel and a healthy snack to eat when we return to school!
Homework is sent home on a Thursday and needs to be handed in on Tuesday. There will be a range of activities to work through with your weekly spellings for your English homework! Learning your spellings is extremely important, as there is a spelling test every Friday.
Take a look at the Curriculum pages to see some photos of us at work!!
Please get in contact if you need any help or have any questions!
The children have written their own Monster Stories based on the Beowulf! Come and take a look at our fantastic display!
We were lucky enough to have people from Babcock come in to help us make our own Monster Brushes. We learnt to create an electrical circuit which powered the motor so that we could race them at the end!
In Science we have been learning about properties of materials. We had a Science day where we did lots of investigations. We made alien soup, created our own experiments and we were lucky enough to create our own lava lamps!
Linking to our class story the Street Child we had a Victorian Workhouse day to help us imagine what life would be like for a Victorian child. We had to write with chalk on slate, answer to our surnames, only speak when spoken too and worst of all eat gruel. However after this exhausting day our teachers said 'you produced some fantastic writing!' Check out our display in school for more.
