Autumn Term 2020

Take a look at our learning this term...


Our Topic this term is Ancient Egypt. We have been learning about where Egypt is, what the weather is like and what life would have been like for the Ancient Egyptians. In addition to this, we have looked at different ancient Egyptian artefacts, discussed and written about what they were. 


This half term our Worship theme is Thankfulness. With this in mind, we have been reflecting on our lives and celebrating reasons we have to be Thankful. When then used our discussions to design t-shirts depicting different aspects of our personality... entitling them 'I am thankful to be me' 

Hand prayers of Hope...


For PE this term, we are learning about American Football. As part of the lessons, we will learn some of the positions and how to throw, catch and run with the ball. By the end of the unit, we will be able to play tag Football matches! 


Our art this term has been focused on drawing portraits. We have been looking the dimensions and proportions of facial features and been using mirrors to then sketch our faces. As well as practising the skills of drawing, we have also been learning about David Hockney and his artwork. 


In English, we have learning to use cohesive devices in order to help with the flow of our writing. We did this through the book 'Stone Girl, Bone Girl'. This book is about Mary Anning and her life. We then used it as a stimulus for our writing genre - biographies.
