As they enter their final term at Northwick Manor the children will be undertaking several exciting projects. The school production is a firm favourite which every child has an opportunity to participate in. Many a new star has been discovered in previous years at the audition stage. So take a risk and put your name forward.
We will be studying Mountains of the world and the human and physical geography of North/South America.
Our art topic is Pop Art. We will learn about the Pop Art movement, in particular the artists Andy Warhol and Lichtenstein and create self portraits based on this style.
In DT we will design and build our own moving fantasy vehicle which will be propelled using batteries and an electrical circuit.
We will be learning about major light sources and how light travels.
We started the year with a fabulous trip to France. This is an educational visit which encourages independence, responsibility and cultural awareness and a fun day at Disneyland Paris.
During the trip the children were treated to a French Medieval display, toured the highlights of Paris, climbed the Eifel Tower, spent a day at Disneyland and a visit to the imposing Vimy Ridge Memorial and trenches.
The history topic has been WW2 which has fed into many other areas of the curriculum. In literacy we studied Good Night Mr Tom. In art we looked at the perspective work of Henry Moore’s tube tunnel.
We dressed as evacuees and journeyed on the Severn Valley Railway to Bridgnorth. There were several workshops in which we were better able to understand home life during the war, the role of Anderson shelters and the types of games children of this period played.
Our homework was to create a WW2 artefact and we learnt the Lindy Hop in dance.
Our enterprise day was a WW2 themed coffee morning where everyone enjoy refreshments and entertainment. Monies raised were donated to the Royal British Legion.
Science has covered the fascinating subject of Micro organisms. We have cultivated our own mould under a variety of conditions.
Our DT project designing and making a doorstop was great fun.
Every child had an opportunity to apply for the positions of Head Boy/Girl and Curriculum Monitor. Once again the standard of presentations was outstanding. Congratulations to everyone who took part and the successful candidates (children will not be named on the website in accordance with our internet safety policy).
