Autumn Term

Elf Day

We made a difference today by raising money for Alzheimer’s by dressing as elves.

 

Incarnation

In RE we have  been thinking about incarnation.  We have thought about the importance of water in our everyday lives and how it is used in baptisms in both children and adults.  We have looked at religious art and thought about the different symbols used to represent the Trinity – God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We then made our own art work to represent the Holy Trinity.

 

United against bullying

We took part in Odd Socks Day to show that we are all united against bullying.

Remembrance Day

We wrote poems and prayers.  We also painted poppies over some black and white world war photos to remind us why we remember.   To make a difference to our school display we painted some pebbles with poppies and mindfulness sayings to give people courage and strength.

Science – Light

We have been looking at reflective materials.  We did an experiment to find which materials are reflective and which are not.  

Mirrors

We have looked at why mirrors are so reflective.  We then played some games using mirrors, walking along a wiggly line looking up at a mirror and writing a message in mirror writing to our friends.

Stone Age to Iron Age.

We examined some “Stone Age poo” to discover that Stone Age people started off as hunter gatherers and ate grasses and berries!  We were glad that we didn’t do the same for the Bronze Age people!

 

Art

In art we have been learning how Jane Goodall used her sketch book to look at nature.  We took our books outside and sketched different trees and plants.  We thought about all the wonderful colours of nature before trying to mix the correct autumnal colours for a leaf using only primary colours.

In PE we are learning about tag rugby.

Here we are!

We have been looking at the book Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers.  We have written poems about our wonderful world and others about the sky, sun or stars.
