Autumn Term

Full Steam Ahead !


Yes, it is full steam ahead for us this term. 

We are studying Queen Victoria as a monarch and are mainly looking at the key changes in society in Victorian Britain.  We will be concentrating on the plight of the poor through our class novel " Street Child" and looking at the central change of  steam travel. This links fabulously with our connection to the Strawberry Line!

Autumn Term - Topic plan

Aardman Animation Visit. We were so lucky in September because Aardman came into school to show us how to model with plasticine. We made Gromit! It was so much fun.

Facts about Queen Victoria 


We were asked to research facts about Queen Victoria for homework. They had to be rather unusual facts. We could represent the facts in any creative way we wished. Some children completed PowerPoints and some recorded drama. Look at some of our fantastic homework below.

P.E - netball - skills and mini games. This is a great way to learn the game of netball. Using our skills in small sided games, will help us to transfer to our larger games.

Remembrance Day Assembly


Like last year we were unable to join the Remembrance Service in St James Community Hall so we wrote and created our own in school. We presented it to Key Stage 2 via zoom and included the two minutes silence.
