‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 3

The children enjoyed their second ukulele lesson this week, although they have discovered it is quite a tricky instrument to learn to play! We continued Science this week, learning all about the different types of teeth and their functions. We also began our tooth decay enquiry. We placed hard boiled eggs in different liquids to see what the effect would be on the enamel on our teeth. We’ll be checking in on Monday to see what has happened to the eggs! 

Week 2

We started our class text ‘Escape from Pompeii’ this week, and the children wrote some fantastic descriptive words using their senses to describe peaceful Pompeii from the start of the story. In maths, we have been working hard on Place Value, partitioning numbers and placing numbers on a number line to 100 or 1,000. The children had lots of fun in Science this week during our experiment about digestion. They created their own model of the digestive system using biscuits, a ziplock bag, water, vinegar and a pair of tights. Some children enjoyed this one more than others!

Week 1

It was lovely to welcome the children back and to see how quickly they settled into KS2! We focused a lot on times tables in maths and recapped different types of nouns and pronouns in English. The children started practising their joined up handwriting, which they found quite tricky to begin with! We enjoyed exploring the Bushcraft area again and building habitats for the wildlife.
