We have had a fantastic start to the term with our trip to the Narnia exhibition at the Dorchester Abbey, which the children really enjoyed. The education team led an interesting and informative tour around the story of Narnia and taught the children about life for an evacuee during World War 2. We will be focusing our writing this term and some of our reading lessons around the Narnia story. We will be reading ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ to the class and have copies for children to follow as we read. This week we wrote a recount of our trip during our English lessons and wrote some thank you letters that we will send to the staff at Dorchester Abbey.
In maths we have continued with our multiplication of 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. We have continued to use equipment to make the sums, have drawn bar models and number lines to represent the questions and have started using the expanded column method as well. Any practice the children can do at home with quick recall of their times tables will help them greatly.
In topic we looked at where the rainforests are situated and learnt about the climate. We decided what we would need to pack for a trip to the rainforest and why.
In Science we focussed on light and where it comes from. We also started to look at how shadows exist and how we see colour.
In RE we are looking at the big question of Does Easter make sense without Passover? We will focus on exploring the connections between Easter and Passover, particularly the Last Supper.
We have started our PE lessons which this term focus on tag rugby skills.
In Art we made pop up Narnia scenes.
