Autumn Term 2020
Our topic last half term was Rivers and Mountains. The children had great fun creating their own river system models and labelling all the different stages of the river.
The children have really enjoyed reading their class book 'Cosmic'. They have used the book as inspiration for some brilliant writing. They have written newspaper articles about Liam the imposter child teacher and created their own persuasive leaflets, based on the theme park in the book - Infinity Park!
In maths, we have been exploring area and perimeter. The children have investigated both rectangles and rectilinear shapes. Here you can see our very first lesson exploring perimeter. We measured the sides of various shapes and objects around the classroom, then calculated the perimeter. Some children even investigated whether it would be possible to measure perimeter with a piece of string rather than a ruler.
During our science lessons, we have been exploring Earth and the solar system! We have investigated the different planets in our solar system, phases of the moon, day and night, shadows and seasons. The children have created their own solar system model and fact files to go with their planets! We have also created prints of the phases of the moon! The children have also created their own shadow puppet shows using a script which they created based on cosmic and they have role played how the Sun, Moon and Earth orbit and rotate.
