Term 2

The Seasonal Journey

This term our topic has been the Seasonal Journey. We have been looking at the weather around the UK and what the weather is like in each season. We have started our journey of being Super Scientists. We looked at different instruments that measure weather and we made our own rain gauges! We followed the instructions and created 7 rain gauges to measure how much rain will fall in the week. We are going to see how much rain falls in cm and record it on a table for the week.

Learning Lift Off

We had an amazing learning lift off in Liberty class. We worked as Collaborative Cats to build our ‘guy’. We used paper to stuff him and learnt all about Penny for the Guy.

When we had finished making him we walked around to the other classes in the school to collect our pennies. We made £2.05!!

At the end of the day we sat around our bonfire and toasted marshmallows and drank hot chocolate, we even sang camp fire songs! It was a lovely experience and we finished by watching some amazing fireworks!

The children are very excited to learn all about the reason behind why we build a guy and who ‘Guy Fawkes’ is. We are going to have some amazing hand-on Historians in Liberty class!
