Our Spring Topic is Groovy Greeks

Take a trip back in time … Would you rather live in Sparta or Athens ? Think carefully because lives were very different depending on your gender!  Did you know that the Greeks had some strange superstitions about food – some wouldn’t eat beans as they thought they contained the souls of the dead! Have more fun learning about the Ancient Greeks  www.natgeokids.com

Our Autumn Topic is Our Blue Planet

We are learning to classify living organisms and finding out about weird and wonderful animals! Did you know there are over 8.7 million different animal species on our Earth. 6.5 million species are on the Land and 2.2 million species are in the Ocean.  Badgers class wonder how many are in another galaxy!  Have more fun learning about the Blue Planet www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/quizzes/blue-planet-big-blue

Our “Unique Universe”

We hosted an ‘Our Galaxy and Beyond’ presentation afternoon for Hedgehogs class.  We have discovered that the Moon has Phases (and is not made from cheese), Pluto is a Dwarf Planet and that one day people may live on Mars.  The younger children asked us many interesting questions and we all enjoyed learning new information, especially relating to aliens!  Follow the link to find out about space and beyond www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

 ” Mysterious Maya

We enjoyed learning about the Ancient Maya Civilization, even the scary parts!  We designed and painted our own Maya Art and practised writing secret messages using the Mayan alphabet.  We discovered that the Maya had 150 gods, imagine having to pray to all those gods!  The Playground leaders even organised a game of Pok-a-Tok, thankfully we did not follow their rules relating to the losing team!

Black History Month

We studied many different talented and successful Black People throughout History.  We produced a book based on Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela’s ideology, it helps people to keep hoping for a peaceful future.  We decided that everyone is different and unique but everyone is equal.  We enjoyed looking at African art and designing our own African mask.  We have decided to support a link orphanage in Ghana, thank you to Mrs Lomotey for teaching us about Africa and how the children in our orphanage will benefit from our donations.  We are also hoping to benefit from learning more about African culture when the children write to us and send us photos.

Anglo Saxons

We learned about Amazing Anglo Saxons and we discovered a fantastic amount of information during this topic.  We decided to ask Miss Priestley if we could make our own display in school for visitors to learn from.  Everyone contributed to the display and we all worked together to design an Amazing Anglo Saxon display.  Please come and have a look.
