January - February
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely break and are looking forward to our next term! This half term, our learning adventure is called ‘Through the Wardrobe’. We will be looking at the amazing story of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis.
We have some exciting things to look forward to this half term!
The children will be taught by myself, Miss Rider and Mrs Webster.
Last week we stepped back in time and became children in the war who were being evacuated to the countryside. We had to say goodbye to our families and pack our cases then board a train. Through this Imagineering we were able to relate to the characters in our new class book 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' by C.S Lewis. The following day we wrote some fantastic diary entries in role explaining the day we had had and how we felt. The children had great ideas and produced some beautiful work!
In science we have begun to look at Light. We started by looking at what light is and what is the absence of light. We then had time to look for different light sources around the classroom. The children then investigated what reflection means by completing an experiment to test what surfaces are reflective and which ones are not. When we had finished we began to discuss 'Can you test lights strength?'. From this question the children planned and carried out there own investigations using rulers and torches. They represented their findings in a table and bar chart.
