We hope you have all had a lovely summer. We can’t wait to start looking at our exciting new topics this year. Keep coming back to see what we have been getting up to in class.
Autumn Term 1
PE – Invasion Games
Our P.E topic this half term has been Games! We have been learning a variety of invasion games and working together as a team. Look at some of our warm ups!
We have really enjoyed taking part in a maths morning! We played a lot of different maths games and took part in a variety of maths activities to help support our learning. We have been focusing on the place value of each digit within a number.
In our Classroom Cookery session this half term we made a traffic light salad. Mr Devaney helped to us to prepare a traffic light salad and taught us the correct ways to cut different fruit and vegetables. The best part was when we got to eat the salad! They looked and tasted amazing!
This half term our school value is honesty. In Collective Worship we have been looking at different stories from the bible all to do with being honest and telling the truth.
Design Technology and Geography
Our DT topic this half term was cookery so we linked our Design Technology with our Geography topic of ‘Where does our food come from?’. We made the traditional Liverpool dish ‘Scouse’ and we really enjoyed peeling and chopping the vegetables but our favourite part was getting to eat the ‘Scouse’ at then end of the day with a piece of bread and butter. Yummy!
In Art we have been looking at the work of Wassily Kandinsky. We used a range of materials to create our own versions of his famous pieces of art. We enjoyed being creative and using our imagination to create our own works of art.
Autumn Term 2
In R.E. we have been looking at the importance of the Bible. Father Hughes came in to talk to us about why the Bible is so important to Christians. He answered many questions for us and explained the many books of the Bible in more detail.
To continue our topic of ‘Where does our food come from?’ we went on a trip to see Mrs Corrin in Tesco. She showed us around all of the aisles and explained to us where all the different foods come from. We also got the chance to go in the fridge and freezer to see where the chilled and frozen food was kept. We now know how our food feels!
A big thank you to all the adults who came in to join us in our ‘Family Event’ this term. We had a fantastic time sharing all our favourite maths games with our friends and adults. We also enjoyed decorating cupcakes ready to sell to raise money for Children in Need.
Children in Need
To raise money for Children in Need we all decorated cakes with icing and sweets to sell for charity. We enjoyed dressing up in our yellow and spotty outfits and completing Pudsey tasks.
We all had a fantastic time looking at all the different animals at Chester Zoo. We went to see the elephants, giraffes, flamingos, jaguar and many more. We were all very brave and went to see the fruit bats in their natural habitat.
Altru Drama came into school for anti-bullying week. They looked at the different types of bullying and what we should do if we are being bullied or if someone we know is being bullied. We know how important it is to be kind to everyone and always show others respect.
