In Autumn 2 we will be learning about The Vikings! We are excited to find out what made them such good warriors, where they came from and how they travelled to Britain. We will research what the Vikings ate and will have a Viking feast at the end of the topic which links
with our D.T. In Science, we will learn about animals and humans.
World War II
In Autumn 1 our topic was all about World War 2, a real favourite within school – it was linked to a local history study where we will learnt about how the industrial estate at Yeadon Airport was used to build Lancaster bombers; how Thwaite Mill made putty to help with the war effort and the visit of Winston Churchill to Leeds. We had great fun designing and making shelters in D.T. and learnt about light in our Science topic linked to the blackout. In Music we learnt WW2 songs and linked these to Remembrance in November.
"I enjoyed this DT topic because WW2 is an interesting subject, but when we did the tests, our Anderson Shelter did not survive the water test!"
"I thought my shelter was going to collapse when we carried out the different tests because we didn't think it was strong enough, but it was strong enough which made me happy!"
"I enjoyed going outside and using the prism - I found out that when light is refracted, you can see the true colours of light and not just white."
"I have really enjoyed orienteering because I like reading maps!"
"I liked that you had to run around. There were lots of different races that we could do and I don't run as much out of school so this was good fun for me."
"It was a lot of fun because we got to use a lot of equipment that we don't normally use - like glue guns and saws!"
"I really enjoyed the whole day - I liked learning about the different coins and the rations because it was very interesting to find out how much food they had in a week and what coins they used to buy it."
Roald Dahl Day
