Autumn Term 2018
In the Autumn term we begin with our transition topic where the children learn about life at the Junior school. We discover what life was like 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt in our exciting topic ‘Time to Meet a Mummy’. We learn about farming, the importance of the River Nile, the fascinating pyramids, the pharaohs and the different stages of mummification! In Science, look at ‘Forces and Magnets’, comparing and grouping a variety of everyday materials on whether they are attracted to a magnet. We then investigate human and animal skeletons. In music lessons we compose and perform Egyptian music. DT involves investigating and making levers and linkages during our mechanical systems work.
Roald Dahl Day
On Roald Dahl day we began by giving clues as to our character for the rest of the class to guess. We then looked at character descriptions and wrote a wanted poster for one of the mean farmers in Fantastic Mr Fox.
