The children in small groups researched and produced an information poster about a significant monarch from our history, here are just a few.  

      

Crucial Crew
A school visit we went on this half term was Crucial Crew in Rotherham.  Crucial Crew is where the children learn about keeping safe from what to do if they are caught in a house fire, to stranger danger, to how to stay safe on the road and public transport, to what the consequences are, if you break the law.  The visit involved role play, watching videos and discussions.  The children learnt a lot from this school trip and thoroughly enjoyed it.  



Autumn 2
Here is this half terms exciting learning!


Maths
As part of our shape and angles work we went outside with string and completed outdoor learning work.  We had to make shapes such as a rhombus, parallelogram, nonagon, square and trapezium.  Using our knowledge of angles we then explored angles around a point and on a straight line.

    
    
   


Science
In our Science topic this half term we have been looking at light.  

Here we have created shadow objects using black card and art straws.  We cut out parts of our designs so the light would shine through.  


We looked at how periscopes work and how they have been used in the past.  We made our own periscopes using a template and mirrors.  We put our own designs on the template.
