Welcome back - Autumn 2 2022
This half term our topic is The Art of Food
In science we will be finding out all about our teeth and digestive system.
In geography we will be looking at environmental issues and considering how much waste we create and how we get rid of it. We will also be considering how we can reduce, reuse and recycle. Finally, in art we will be looking at still life paintings by Cezanne and Renoir and creating our own style life drawing and creating sculptures out of papier mache
This term Y3/4 will be having a Forest School session on a Thursday afternoon. CHildren in Y3/4 can come to school on their Forest School gear. Y5/6 will be having a PE session with Marie, the sports coach.
Reading and homework
Regular reading is a fundamental part of your child’s learning both at school and at home. Please fill in reading records. Times tables are also essential and need to be practised regularly at home along with spellings and times tables.
Every half term the children will get a homework grid with activites they can do linked to their topic work or their English and maths. Although these activites are optional it will help the children develop their independant learning if the complete them ( and earn team tokens!).
Forest School is now on Thursday afternoon and for this half term is for Y3/4. They can still come into school in their Forest School gear.Keep an eye on the weather as a change of clothes might also be useful.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
Mrs Murray and Mrs Hough.
Keep an eye on this website and your emails - there are bound to be changes!
What's been happening.........
The Art of Food
We have been using papier mache to sculpt fruit. Next week we will be mixing colours in order to paint them.
From chewing to pooing....
We finished off our topic on teeth and the digestive system by making a working model of the digestive system. Messy, fun and informative.
