These are set every Thursday and are due in the Thursday after, when we will complete a spelling test on 10 random words off the list.

AUTUMN 2

From half term until Christmas we will be answering the question "What was it like to live during the Stone Age/Bronze Age/ Iron Age?" Please see the attached overview so you can find out what your child will be learning. 

COOKING STEWED FRUIT

After gathering different fruit, people living during the Stone Age would stew the fruit to preserve it. We cut and prepared fruit to be stewed thinking about safety in the kitchen. We will try them once cooled!

HUNTER-GATHERERS

We looked at the diet of people who lived during the Stone Age and how they didn't grow their own food. Instead they had to be hunter-gatherers. We learnt about the tools they used and then went off 'hunting and gathering' on the school field. 

HOW TO MAKE A WOOLLY MAMMOTH

We read and followed instructions to make our own Woolly Mammoths. Come and look at them displayed in our classroom.

How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

We are reading the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'. We have washed some toys using imperative 'bossy' verbs to help us. We have then read and followed some instructions to make our own Woolly Mammoth (Thank you for all the milk cartons!). 

 

CAVE PAINTING

After watching a virtual tour of the caves at Lacsaux Caves and looking at a variety of pictures of cave painting, we went in our 'caves' and used charcoal to recreate designs. Some of us thought about what story our designs were telling. We also blew powder paint to create an outline of our hand.

MATHS

So far this half term we have been developing our knowledge of place value. This has included learning about Roman Numerals, comparing numbers and ordering them. 

PSHE

As a class we thought about what 'ingredients' make a good friend. We added these to our jars and they are displayed in Eagle classroom as a reminder. We then thought about applying these 'ingredients' in to different scenarios that may happen during the school day.

WOW experiments

Before we told the class what our Quest topic was this half term, they completed a range of experiments to give them some clues.
