Half Term Information Autumn 1 2022

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 mastery and using power maths challenged lots of us; especially as we had to think about partitioning numbers in a variety of different ways. In other areas, we completed a unit with Mrs Field on life in prehistoric eras while improving our orienteering skills.

Children’s comments about their learning:


"Art has been linked to our topic in a fun way. For example, a textured animal - I enjoyed that!,” Anna


“I have enjoyed Accelerated Reader this term, being able to pick interesting books and challenging my word count has made it enjoyable and helped me with my writing!",”  Arthur
