‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 3

We have started our new geography topic this week and have been learning about the Silk Road and why is was important for trade. We annotated pictures of the Tamarin Basin and discussed why traders had to go around the landform. This week we have completed our Doodle Maths baselines and have continued our work around Skellig. 

Week 2

This week we have continued our place value topic in maths, learning about numbers to 10,000,000. We took part in a fitness session with Active Kids and loved being back in our Bush Craft area for our Life Skills Session with Mrs McHatton. We were identifying flora and fauna. 

Week 1

It has been wonderful to welcome the children back to school this week. We have been very busy already. The children have been learning about fixed and growth mindsets and in Maths they have been revisiting some of their previous learning about place value. 

We rocked out in our music lesson, learning to sing Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi.  In English we have been making predictions about our new class novel Skellig.
