Autumn Term 2022

Our Key Line of Enquiry is How can we make a difference?

Please read our welcome back letter.

Art

In art we have been experimenting with chalk, charcoal and rubbers.

Jesus is the Light of the World.

The Bridge came to help understand that Jesus is the Light of the World. We discovered that a flame on a match has no shadow! We decided that this was like Jesus and God always being there but we couldn't always see them. We thought about all the different types of light there are from bioluminescence, the sun, lights and torches to love. Love is like a light because it can brighten someone's day.

Science

We are learning about Light this term. We have been experimenting to find reflective materials.

Air ambulance training.

We had training from the air ambulance. We learnt how to give instructions so that people could find us using "What 3 words". We also learnt how to do CPR and use a defibrillator.

Children in Need

We all raised money for Children in Need by taking part in our Bake-off and wearing spotty clothes. Our teddies also came to school with us.

Stonehenge

We visited Stonehenge to start our learning about the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  We thought about how the people from thousands of years ago found and made things to  make a difference to their lives.  

Queen Elizabeth II.We started this term with reflecting on how Queen Elizabeth II made a difference to our lives: through service and love. 

We celebrated the amazing life of Queen Elizabeth II and her achievements over the past 70 years. 

Young Writers

In 2022, three of our Year 4 children received certificates from the Rotary Club for their entries into the Young Writer competition last year.   Congratulations to them!

Harvest

We made a Harvest Sheaf loaf for our service in the church. How do farmers make a difference in the world?

We also wrote prayers for our Harvest service.

Dear God,

Thank for our world.

Thank you for the fields, trees and rivers, that are part of our world that allow us to grow our fruit and vegetables. Thank you for trees that give us apples and pears, for bushes that provide blackberries and raspberries and for fields that provide wheat.

Thank for the sunshine and the rain to grow the crops.

Thank you for our wonderful world,

Amen

Dear God,

Thank you for our farmers who look after animals and grow our crops.

Thank you for people, machines and animals who harvest our crops.

Thank you for people who look after the machinery.

Thank you for fishermen who catch our sea food.

Thank you for sailors who deliver the food to all different parts of our world.

Amen
