Apples and Pears - w/e 01/04/21 - Superstars - Nevaeh and Archie

This week we have been enjoying lots of fun Easter activities.  We have designed our own characters for a new Julia Donaldson story and have come up with some great ideas.

Next term we will be learning all about the farm.

1W/1B - w/e 01/04/21
This week we have been scientists looking at all the different changes around us now that spring is here.  We have really enjoyed the Easter Bonnet Parade and Easter Egg Hunt this week.

After Easter we are going to be authors, writing about our woodland welly walk.  We are going to be engineers starting our new enquiry How do we move around?

2F/2A - w/e 01/04/21

This week we enjoyed learning about quarters and thirds.  We also had fun taking part in the Easter Bonnet Parade!

After the Easter holidays, we are looking forward to learning about plants and setting up an experiment to see what conditions plants grow best in.

3KL/3W - w/e 01/04/21

This week our authors have been finishing their own explanation all about a robot dog; they used their success criteria to make sure they included all the features we had been learning about.  We also made the most of the beautiful weather we have had and were mathematicians outside, recording measurements of lots of different objects.  We celebrated Easter with our fantastic Easter Bonnet Parade and egg decorating competition!

Next term we are going to be starting our new enquiry "How can you feel the force?" as well as our new English unit focusing on the book The Star in the Jar.  We are very excited to put on our scientist, author and mathematician hats on next term.

4E/4W - w/e 01/04/21

We have enjoyed all the Easter celebrations this week.

After the holiday, our new enquiry is "Who stood here before us?"  The music teacher, Phil Donovan, is going to be teaching 4W how to play the ukulele after having a very successful and entertaining time in 4E!  We will be moving to decimals in maths and in PSHE we will be talking about relationships.

5R/5B - w/e 01/04/21 - Superstar: Jayden
We have really enjoyed completing the challenge to our enquiry question "Who is trading with whom?"  They created some very imaginative board and card games, all based around trade within Corsham's wool industry!  With tactics a-plenty!

During the first week back after Easter, we will be starting our new enquiry question "Where is our twin?" which will be a fun-filled enquiry with lots of geography and art involved.

6VS/6B - w/e 01/04/21 

Year 6 have been recreating "Ruin" in our writing, telling a short story of survival in an abandoned city.  After Easter, we will be starting our enquiry "How do we all live together?" with some discussion around democracy.  It should be very interesting!
