Spring Term 2017
Hi everyone! This is our very own webpage! Here you can find important information about what we are learning about, and it is a good place to tell your parents to look if they need to know something about what's going on! Sometimes there will be opportunities for us to show photos of what we've been doing, so keep checking in! There are often links below to follow.
Our Context for Learning
this term is 'The Swinging Sixties!' This project has a history focus and teaches the children about life in the 1960's including significant social, cultural and political events of the time. We have already done lots of work based on our 'pupil voice' planning, following our 'Immersion Day' at the beginning of the year. We will continue to work through the project and will keep you notified of any events linked to our project as it progresses.
We will also be continuing to be involved with the new BBC Primary Science Campaign called 'Terrific Scientific'.
Thank you for your support regarding the taste study that we (and Class 6) were involved with in conjunction with Coventry University! The children were wonderful when we featured on BBC Breakfast and on the Live Lesson on 31st January! The next investigation will be all about water! Watch this space!
Remember the exciting day we had when Professor Brian Cox came to make a video about a melting chocolate investigation? Well, our video is ready to view on Youtube! You can see it by clicking on the link below. You can see some photos of our day with Professor Cox on our Twitter page and here on our webpage. Click link below.
