What we did last half term 

Last half term our topic was electricity. We began with a visit to Enginuity at Ironbridge where we learned how machines work and made our own jitterbugs - putting in circuits so they moved. Back at school we continued to learn about circuits, expanding them to make lights shine and bells ring.

We as also did lots of work on celebrations, particularly Christmas. This was fun. We had a pantomime visit us in school, went to the theatre to see Robin Hood and visited Drayton Manor Park. The term ended with Christmas parties, a visit to Church, and a disco. Parents joined us for drinks, mince pies and toasted marshmallows around the fire pit followed by a visit from Santa.

         

 

What we are doing this half term 

Our topic this half term is The Ancient Egyptians. We will be finding out about how they lived, making death masks, writing instructions for Mummification writing in hieroglyphics and much more.

In science we are looking at forces so will be doing lots of pushing and pulling.

Our Year Six pupils will be going on a residential visit to Chase Water during February.
