Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful rest over Christmas with family and friends. Term 3 is a busy one as we start off the year 2021 with plenty of learning.
Our topic this term is based around the book ‘Cogheart’ by Peter Bunzl. It is fictional book set in 1896 in a Victorian England but with an alternative history: steampunk, mechanical animals, clockwork servants and silver airships. It follows the adventures of a heroine called Lily sets out on a journey to find the truth about her father.
We will be developing our descriptive writing and building on our grammar and punctuation knowledge using the book as inspiration.
In art, we will be creating our own 'mechanimals' based on creatures from our class book. Our science topic is light, this will involve planning our own investigations, taking measurements and recording data and using scientific evidence to support ideas.
In RE, we will be learning about the enquiry question: How should we live and who can inspire us? The children will be continuing to develop respect and inquisitiveness of other faiths and traditions.
We will be learning about the Victorian era in History and finding out all about the Victorian inventions which we still use today!
Our school value this term is perseverance and we will be discussing this in whole school and key stage worships.
