We also enjoy reading books by different authors and challenge ourselves to read a broad range of both classic and modern books. Whenever we can we like to take our learning outside. This helps us to understand and apply what we have learned, in the context of the real world.
This term we are learning about WW2 and what it was like for children who were evacuated. Together we have carefully thought about what questions we would like to ask Joyce, who was evacuated from London to Dadford. We are looking forward to talking to her about her experiences next term.
We have also been finding out about ‘Dig for Victory’ and have planted our own vegetables in the school garden. So far everything is growing well, except for the broccoli, which the birds have taken a liking to!
We are also learning about plants in science and are conducting observational experiments using different independent variables. We have made predictions and will now find out if plants can grow healthily if one of the main requirements is removed.
For our residential this year we will be being Celts for two days and staying the night in a proper roundhouse. Please see the School Trips page for the letter about this trip.
What have we been up to?
