Autumn 2021 — Summer 2022
Autumn Term 2021: Class three have worked really hard this term and have earned themselves a rest for the Christmas break! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, where the children found themselves transported back in time to Victorian England where they experienced life as a poor person seeking help at the workhouse. During their time there, they had to solve the mystery of who stole the silver candlesticks by interacting with the various characters throughout the day. Most of them got it right, so we may have some budding detectives in the making!
From our visit we were then able to imagine that we were living in the workhouse and wrote diary entries based upon our experience. Life in the workhouse was very hard and if you didn’t like gruel, then it would be much harder!
In maths we have been getting to grips with fractions and will continue with these after Christmas. During the holidays the pupils can play a few games of TT Rockstars to help them remember their times tables.
Our Science lessons have involved finding out about electricity and we have been making our own circuits and experimenting with making bulbs brighter and buzzers louder! We also had a go at making our own steady hand game, which was great fun!
In music with Mrs Merry pupils have been learning to play the recorder and read music. There has been lots of beautiful singing too!
