Autumn 1:

In Numeracy we have been working on our place value to 10,000 and we have begun using this to work on Addition and Subtraction problems. Ms Nichol and Miss Crolla were very impressed with all the methods and models we remembered!
In Literacy we have been working on a piece of writing about dreams based on Roald Dahl’s The BFG. We really enjoyed making Dream Jars and learning to speak in Gobblefunk. We loved Ice Cream tasting and collecting vocabulary – who knew chocolate would be ‘chocolatey’!?
In Science we have been learning about sound. In Computing we have learned about Dataloggers. This week we will use Dataloggers in our sound experiment. We have enjoyed learning about and experiencing vibrations.
Our History has been all about the Vikings. We invited a Viking visitor into school and we really enjoyed learning about Viking life. Wayland the
Viking showed us how the Vikings would have made fire and how to fight with Viking weapons. This week we will have our Viking Experience Day and we will learn about runes, make Viking shields and jewellery and make some Viking clay heads.
Art this half term is learning about colour – we made some super Autumn leaf pictures –  and working in clay.
In French we have been learning vocabulary related to food. We have been practising saying which foods we like and how to ask for these foods in a cafe.
In Geography we have been having a look at Scandinavia and discovering the land of the Vikings.
In RE we have been learning about Jesus and authority. We have learned how Jesus shows his authority and what this idea of authority means to Christians.
PSHCEE lessons have been about Democracy and we have just begun our work on Black History Month. 
We have also squeezed in weekly trips to the pool. European Sports Day and Harvest! Phew!
