Good Friday Cross Embroidery
Whilst studying the Easter story, we have focused particularly on Good Friday and have embroidered crosses as part of our learning.
Shape of the UK Topic
We have finished off our work on The Shape of the UK by creating a persuasive piece of writing, trying to convince someone else to visit the UK.
We have been learning the recorder with Mr Cook since September and getting really confident now!
As part of our Geography work, we have found out the difference between human and physical features and studied the Lake District to discover the many reasons as to why people may visit this area of the UK.
As part of our Shape of the UK topic, we have been studying the largest peaks in Great Britain – Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike. We looked at the 3 Peaks Challenge and researched the information a participant may need to complete this challenge. We then built each mountain and created a 3d model of the peaks.
Turner Inspired Art
We have finished off our learning on Kent by discovering the artist Turner. We have used pastels to re-create his artwork.
World Book Day
Look at our amazing outfits for World Book Day!
We finished off our work on co-ordinates by playing battleships!
We have been rehearsing our co-ordinate skills by using peg boards to describe position to a partner.
Why do we live here? We live in the county of Kent – the garden of England, home to Charles Dickens and the main area for growing hazelnuts in the UK! The first ever James Bond book was written down the road in St. Margarets and we are the gateway to Europe being just 21 miles away from Calais in France. Where do other people live? Do you know anything about the other counties of the UK or how our country is divided up? As developing geographers, we will consider the shape of the UK as we travel from South further North. Along the way, we will practice our skills in map reading through the use of OS maps, Google Earth and atlases. You will be so inspired by the wonderful and diverse shape of the UK you will want to discover so many of these extraordinary places in the future
We began our work on our new topic of The Shape of the UK with our learning lift-off. We were given a piece of Play-doh each and had to build what we thought the UK looked like.
We have also created fact files about Dover, including different landmarks and why a tourist may want to visit.
This term, we are reading Mr Gum. We have enjoyed thinking about this character and have used our inference skills to think about the personality of two different characters – Mr Gum and Billy William the Third.
We have started to learn about fractions in our maths lessons as well as rehearsing plotting co-ordinates.
