Autumn 1 2021 - Where in the world is Africa? 
Design Technology 
We created our own automatons inspired by African animals. 
Literacy - The Storyseekers
We are taking part in the National Theatre's Storyseeker programme for our Literacy this half term. 
The aim of this programme is to restore the imagination and wonder of stories to the world after the Covid 19 Lockdown. 
Music 
This half term we are learning how to play African drums. 
PE 
This half term we have been taking part in Elemental Watersports at Swanpool Beach. 
Autumn 2 - What was it like to be a Victorian child? 
Victorian Day 
We dressed up as Victorians for the day and took part in lots of different Victorian activities:
  • Victorian servants - we cleaned the classroom, polished glasses and washed clothes by hand. 
  • Victorian cooks - we made bread rolls for dinner.
  • Victorian school students - we practiced writing letters on slates using chalk. 
We also took part in drill on the playground and learnt all about the differences between rich and poor Victorian families. 
Science 
We have been learning about the major muscles in the body and made our own models of how they work in pairs.
Religion and Worldviews 
We have been learning about Jewish festivals and celebrations this half term.
We retold the story of The Exodus. This is remembered by Jewish people during the festival of Pesach (Passover) and is important because it is when God freed the Jewish people from slavery. 
Art 
We took part in a Woodland Animal project with the Dracaena Centre and pupils from Falmouth School. 
We made animal masks, created leaf patterns and made woodland posters using stencils. 
Design Technology 

This half term we created our own pasty bags. We practiced our sewing skills and added extra details to make our bags look eye-catching. 
Christmas
 
Come and see our Christmas performance, including African drumming and our favourite Christmas songs!  We hope you enjoy it.

Science
 
This half term in Science we have been exploring light. So far we have investigated how light helps us to see things, how to stay safe in the sun and which materials are the most reflective. 
Art 
 
We have been learning about the Japanese artist - Hokusai. Here are some of our versions of his famous painting 'The Great Wave'.
