Movers and Shakers

Throughout Spring 2 we will learning about several significant people and the impact they had. We will learn five statements from Dawson's model that will help
them identify people who are historically significant and use the words year, decade and century to describe
dates and times. They will study the life and impact of a significant person in the locality and of 10 significant
individuals from around the world. They will complete in-depth studies of significant explorers Christopher
Columbus and Neil Armstrong, and significant activists Emmeline Pankhurst and Rosa Parks and think
carefully about the impact of their actions.

Land Ahoy!

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure!

This half term we will be learning about pirates by reading stories and information books, investigate amazing sea rescues and write postcards and poetry influenced by the sea. Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials. We’ll study paintings of boats and draw detailed pictures of our own. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!

 

Shiver me timbers; it’s going to be good!

Pirate Day!

What fun we had!

Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found! 


This term, we will visit a real castle to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two! We’ll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the stories of Rapunzel , The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and create models inspired by them. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games.

 

See the topic tab for more information below.

We had a fantastic time at Tamworth Castle.

Our topic this half term is called 'Wriggle and Crawl.' We will become entemologists, artists and animators! We will learn all about mini beasts, their habitats, life cycles and their food chains. We will create a detailed observational drawing of the creatures we discoverer and we will use stop animation to create our very own life cycle !...

 

See the topic tab below for more information.

 

To start off our Wriggle and Crawl Topic we went on a minibeast hunt around school. We found lots of interesting creatures. We also made a class wormery.

We have been working on our computing skills. We wrote and used algorithms to make the Beebots move.

We had great fun in our topic lesson today. As part of our Wriggle and Crawl topic we conducted a science experiment to see how quickly snails moved. Check out the pictures below. One of the snails decided to cheat by having a piggy back!
