We have had a great start to the term with some fabulous topics. Our English work began with a study of the works of Roald Dahl which the children really enjoy particularly his ‘made up’ words. We created our own Dream Jars focusing on fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases which form part of the Spelling Punctuation and Grammar expectations.
Our history topic has been the life of Henry VIII. We have discussed the need for power, protection, alliances with other countries and the necessity to have an heir to the throne which resulted in him marrying six times! Also the legacy his reign left with the ruined buildings we now visit as a result of the dissolution of the monasteries and his navy. We will be visiting Harvington Hall next week to experience, first hand, the lifestyle of the Tudors.
In science we have studies the three states of matter. Solids, liquids and gas. We ran an investigation on evaporation and as the colder weather arrives are seeing many examples of condensation.
