This week in Maple Class, we have had an extremely busy week. On Monday and Tuesday we looked at R.E and the children explored the concept of Incarnation. Over these days, the children designed their own picture of Jesus's Baptism and included the trinity, they designed their own triptych and wrote an email to a Christian to deepen their understanding. In Art and Design we finished designing our Ancient Greek Pots. The children are very proud of them. Finally, we explored the water cycle in science and the children designed their own mini water worlds and created a diagram of the cycle.

This term in P.E we are exploring dance. We are choreographing a dance to the song Revolting Children from the musical Matilda. We are having lots of fun.
For World Book Day we came to school in our PJs and brought in our favourite book and teddy and shared our memories. We also designed book covers.

Term 3

 

We have had an exciting term and have started to look at Anglo- Saxons and Scots. This topic will follow on into next term as well. We have explored how the Romans left Britain and the Anglo- Saxons and Scots took over. We have specifically looked at Village life and how it differs from ours; artefacts and how they allow us to learn about the past and their religion and its similarities and differences to Christianity.

 

Towards the end of term we had a DT Day which was closely linked to our science topic of electricity. In teams we created our own design criteria and built a battery powered lamp.

 

Everyone has worked extremely hard this term.

Term 2

We have had an exciting term continuing to learn about the ancient Greeks. We visited the Holburne Museum in Bath where we made ancient Greek plates and then completed our topic with an ancient Greek day. This involved the children taking part in an ancient Greek reading, writing and maths lesson. We competed in our own version of the Olympic games before making our own Greek sculptures using soap.

 

Everyone has worked incredibly hard this term.
