Our Summer 1st Topic is:

Within this topic we will have a science focus learning about how plants grow; the names for the processes involved in a plant growing and also learning the names for the male and female parts of the flower. In our English and PSHCE lessons, we will be reading the classic novel 'Tom's Midnight Garden'. We will be looking at characters and settings of imaginary worlds and then become an author ourselves by writing our own inspired imaginary world story.

Our new Spring 2nd Topic is:

In our Rotten Roman topic we will look at Roman and Celtic Britain and their invasion of Britain through our History and Geography session. We will also be finding out about he spread of the Roman Empire and we will explore the location of Hadrian’s Wall, finding the start and end points. In Art we will look at the history of Roman Mosaics, designing and creating one of our own. We will also explore oil pastels and sketch a Roman soldier. Year 3 are also looking forward to their first Residential ... The Sill awaits their invasion!

Amazing shields made for Homework

Our new topic to start off 2019 is:

We will be using atlases to locate the UK and the UAE, with a focus specifically on Dubai. We will be extending our geographical knowledge to name the continents and locate them on a map. Dubai is famous for their super structures, so we will be studying them further, with the aim to make our own structures. This links well to our science topic as we have our own super structures to explorer - our Skeletons!



The girls enjoyed being apart of some Zulu dancing!

We looked at Dubai buildings and tried to build our own structure. We had to work as a team and only had 20 minutes to complete it!

Learning how to show data in a bar graph ... it was a little tricky for our first attempt.

We worked as a team to design and make our own tall structures!

We are working hard to improve our skills for invasion games

Lots of interactive maths this half term!

This half term we will be learning about the North and South Pole. We will be finding out what the weather and climate is like there, what animals live there and if people can live there. In English we will be focusing on the Author Dick King Smith and using some of his features in our own writing. In science we will be looking at magnets and learning to use the words attract and repel correctly.
