Off with their heads!
A midsummer night's dream
As a finale to our learning about the Tudors, we studied William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. We wrote our own playscripts, made our own props and performed our version of the play in the round in the glade of Millennium Wood. We had a fabulous time, and were very lucky the sun shone!
This year on Remembrance Day, we painted poppies onto pebbles and then placed them at the village War Memorial in the churchyard and at various points around school. We also produced some war art using various mediums.
The legend - Sir David Attenborough
We have been learning to write biographies. We linked this to science and learnt about Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall before finally writing our biography on Sir David Attenborough. We presented these as double page spreads; we are very proud of how they turned out!
To finalise out science topic on electricity, the children were challenged to design a working fairground model. They worked hard on the design and build elements and then drew circuit diagrams to motorise their models. They evaluated them following the build and thought about how they could improve them next time. Well done everyone, great teamwork!
Science - It's electrifying!
We have been learning about electricity this term. We have learnt about and put together our own simple circuits, drawn circuit diagrams using the correct symbols and designed and made model fairground rides to demonstrate our learning and new understanding.
We began our learning about the Tudors by focusing on how the Tudor Rose came to be. We learnt about the Battle of Bosworth and Henry Tudor's rise to the monarchy.
