Half term information Autumn 2 2021

The children have fully immersed themselves in the learning this past term and have really engaged in the topic: Stone Age to Iron Age. We created clay beads to design our own Stone Age jewellery and wrote a variety of letters about our discoveries through the text, Stone Age Boy. The new maths focus on times tables challenged lots of us; especially as we had to think about how we use them to answer some complicated reasoning questions. In other areas, we created a dance based on life in prehistoric eras and for outdoor PE learnt various pass techniques.

Children’s comments about their learning:

 

I enjoyed Spanish because I get to learn a new language and challenge my dad,” Alastair

“I have liked maths and PE because I like learning the rules of the 8 times tables and because Mrs Squires taught fun passing lessons,”  Lilah
