Term 4 Learning: Hidden Worlds
After half term, we are excited to start our Hidden Worlds topic. We will be reading a book with no words...Journey by Aaron Becker. There are so many clues to help us with our descriptive writing. We will then delve into the underwater world of orcas and the controversies surrounding their use in theme parks. Finally, we will look at science-fiction writing, using a music video to inspire us!
Our History learning is all about the Hidden World of mining in our local area - we will look at local maps and see if you can find your street from over 100 years ago!
In maths we will look at solving problems involving a variety of measures, as well as lots more geometry!
Term 3 Learning
In Term 3 our topic was the Victorians! We learnt about the Victorians and how life as a child was very different to today! We also learnt about how the Victorian's influenced life today, through their amazing inventions!
We had an amazing school trip to Sevington Victorian School, where we stepped back in time and were Victorians for the day! We wore traditional Victorian outfits, such as petticoats and caps and attended a Victorian school, where we were amazed at how harsh life was for Victorian children! We loved seeing the punishments that were used on the Victorian boys and girls, such as the dunce hat and the cane. At playtime, the boys and girls were not allowed to talk to each other, and had separate toys to play with. We have all come back to school, relieved not to have the harsh life of a Victorian school child! Have a look at the photos below.
Term 2 Learning
Term 1 Learning
In Term 1 we are learned about Ancient Greece! What did they believe in? Why were they so important to today's culture? How were their Olympics similar to ours? How did Athens and Sparta differ and who would win in a battle?!
The children went to Bristol City Hall, where we sat in the Councillors' debate room to debate the issues of library closures. We used their microphones and electronic voting system. We even had the chance to meet Mayor Marvin Rees.

At the end of the term we hosted a fantastic Meet and Greek event! Children prepared a delicious Greek salad and dressed in togas to treat their family and friends to an afternoon of Greek themed activities. Visitors were amazed to hear the children talking about all of their Greek learning. Take a look below at some of the pictures from the afternoon:
