Our inspiring Science topics this term are: Light and how varying surfaces reflect it and how shadows change. The second topic will be observing plants grow and understanding their lifecycles.


Children will be looking at how and why aspects of our locality have changed and the impact it has on the community.


We are delighted that Dr Nigel Smith will be visiting to share his expertise with the children to enable them to create a stop motion animation film of their own design.


Our art work ties in nicely with flowers as we study the work of Georgia O’Keefe and use various mediums to create representations of flowers.


In RE we will be looking at the impact of ‘Prayer’ including how and why different religions pray.



In history our journey through time started with Stone Age man, progressed to Celts and Romans and finished with the Vikings. We studied how they lived and the famous uprising led by Boudica.  We also visited the Roman fort of Caerleon.







We have been studying myths and legends understanding how they differ and creating our own stories.  Our research has covered stories such as Beowulf and the Grendel. We will be using the Myths and Legend online software to create a digital book.  We have evaluated the web based Viking Quest game and have been learning to code using the Discovery Coding software.



Our Flat Stanley mantle has been based on lean and healthy living.  The children met Stanley who was significantly overweight and have used their powers of persuasion to create a more healthy lifestyle for him. 



We have explored climates around the world which included temperate, desert, Mediterranean, artic and tropical areas.
