Half Term Information Spring 2 2022

This term has been busy from start to finish! The excitement of our Ancient Egypt topic as well as World Book Day, Time-Out Thursday and Red Nose Day all fed into our learning. In maths, we have been super learning when working with tricky fractions, and we had fun using different measures for length. Our science work on magnets and forces has been equally interesting and informative with lots of experiments including making our own magnet games. For English we took part in our whole school writing week, making a poem to go with the story Tuesday as well as retelling the story of Egyptian Cinderella and writing Tutankhamun biographies. Other learning included learning about light in different world religions, discussing safety and consent in PSHE and developing our dance and orienteering skills in PE. 

Children’s comments about their learning:

 

“I liked learning that the Ancient Egyptians used hooks to pull brains out of people even if that is gross too...” Will, Dorado 

“I thought our assembly on Red Nose Day was hilarious,” Florence, Dorado 

“I like science because magnets are really cool and they attract other magnets on the other side. I’ve also got a fact: If you put a magnet over a compass it makes the compass spin different ways.” Isobel, Columba
