Autumn Term

Although Autumn term might be a little bit different this year in our year group bubbles we are still going to make it as fun and enjoyable as possible! Our topic for this term is Stones and Bones, we are learning lots about the Stone Age. In English, we will be exploring many Stone Age stories, including The Croods! Our science topic is all about rocks and soils as well as light, we will be sampling soil and finding out about the geological make up of our local environment. Our art will link closely with our topic as we look at Andy Warhol and create some Stone Age animal prints. This term will be full of fun and exciting new things we can learn together, we can’t wait to get started.

Our topic for this term is Walk Like Egyptian. Our working this term will involve exploring the ancient Egyptian culture, learning about mummification, gods, pharaohs and pyramid building, as well as all of our work in other subjects.  In art we will be learning how to paint water which will complement our geography work on the River Nile. We will be inviting parents into school at the end of term to celebrate all our hard work with a class assembly.
