Spring 1 2022 Rio de Vida

This term our topic is called Rio de Vida!  We are learning all about Brazil!

Dancing feet, step to the samba beat. Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air, wave your flags in the cool night air. Come join the party down in Rio, keeping the rhythm with your party shaker. Bright colours, patterns and feathers. Can you make a headdress or party mask? Meet magical creatures from Brazil’s myths and legends and create your own too. Be as fancy as you like. Let’s get down to Rio where football is king, and practise our skills on golden beaches. Now we need to plan a celebration with fabulous music and song. Let’s invite parents and friends to come along. Bem-vindo ao Brasil os meus amigos.

We will be playing Samba music, learning Samba dances and preparing for a carnival!

Autumn 2 2021 Magnificent Monarchs

This term our topic is called Magnificent Monarchs and is related to discovering all about significant monarchs from the past and present. We started the term by finding a copy of 'The Queen's knickers' and letter from the Queen!! It invited us to plan and then host a tea party, which was great fun.

This is a history focussed topic and we will be delving into the past and finding out about monarchs. We will focus on learning about the lives of Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, Elizabeth II, Henry VIII, William the Conqueror and Alfred the Great. Who were they? What did they do? Where did they live? What did they wear? Why are they significant in history? We will be using our knowledge to make a timeline as we go through the topic. During the term we will also take part in a Castles topic day with a visit from the History Van which promises to be an amazing fun packed day.

Autumn 2021 Dinosaur Planet!

Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts.  Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!

Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a sailor’s life for me. Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world, just like Captain Cook. Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag. Speak like a pirate, write like a poet, then weigh and measure a pirate’s booty. How do rescues happen at sea? Find out about brave volunteers and young Miss Darling, rowing her boat across stormy seas.
