This term the children will be visiting a wood near Hackness as part of their forest schools experience. Here is a snapshot of the 3/4's trip.
On the first week back we went on a forest school trip to Hackness. We went there on the bus and the first thing we did when we got there was walk up to the forest. When we got to the top we made some hot chocolate with a Kelly kettle. Whilst the teachers were doing that we went on a leaf hunt. It was fun.
In one of the activities we built a den. We had five people on our team. We were very good and it was fun.
We are gong to find out about the Romans and what they did for us in Britain. The children will be researching the history of the Romans, how their civilisation began, what their daily life was like and what they invented. We shall use this information to write reports and stories about the Romans.
In art we shall be looking at mosaics and designing our own.
Our Science topic this term is all about plants. We will be looking at how flowering plants reproduce and what they need to grow. We will be going on a local walk to identify plants near the school.
As mathematicians we shall be looking at the four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We shall also be exploring shapes, their angles and how they can be moved on a co-ordination grid. We will look at graphs and they questions that can be answered using them.
In French Year 5 will concentrate on being able to talk about their family. This involves mastering the verb 'avoir' (to have) in a positive and well as negative sentence. Year 6 children will work on more detailed descriptions of themselves as well as other people, learn numbers from 69-100 and use the verbs 'avoir' (to have) and 'être' (to be).
For sport we will be taking part in athletic activities such as running, throwing and jumping. Our team games will include cricket, rounders and a football match against Settrington.
