The children have already been on a fact hunt and found out about many things, including - George Stephenson and Brunel and different trains including The Flying Scotsman and The Mallard. As we zoom through the term expect to hear more about the age of steam and The Industrial Revolution, how trains have advanced and even a train crash that happened in Sleaford!

The Pride of Britain

Term two is all about celebrating all things British! We will be teaching children all about different people who have helped make our countries Great. We will learn how important Queen Anne was in uniting England and Scotland before learning about lots of other great Britons who have helped to influence and shape our lives today. In writing will be inspired by Dahl, and learn all about his books. We will even write our own new exciting chapter for The Twits! ?We are also looking forward to celebrating the unsung heroes of Britain as we find out about lots of different jobs and roles in our local community. Have a look at our top information page to find out our key objective for each subject.

Term 3
Stone ‘N Bones

In this topic we are going right back to where it all began – The Stone Age! We will ask questions of the past through our own archaeological dig, discover what is was like to live, understand the importance of hunting and find how man has evolved. We will experience what it was like to scavenge for food, stew food, convey meaning through cave paintings. We will also explore different settlements and discover how time changed and advanced through to the Bronze and Iron Ages.

We are looking forward to design and making our own Stone Age Tools in DT and writing persuasive adverts to encourage consumers to use them. We will also apply for a job as a Stone Age hunter using lots of persuasive techniques.

We are looking forward to hosting a Stone Age Day on Monday 16th January 2016 – please see the parent mail for more details on this and check the website for photos of the day.
We will also be inviting you into Year 3 this term so we can share our fantastic work with you on The Stone Age. We will let you know the date as soon as possible :)
