Autumn 1 

This half term has been so much fun for the Wonder Wizards, as we have been learning all about famous explorers including, Christopher Columbus, Amelia Earheart and Christopher Columbus! We loved learning about how Amelia Earheart attempted to fly aroiund the world in Old Bessie, her red plane. We made some amazing projects at home on the topic, which we discussed in class during out daily ‘show and tell’. We even made our very own space buggies in DT! 

In English we wrote some fantastic explorer stories, based on the book ‘Bob and the Moontree Mystery’. We also wrote some sense poems after going on and Autumn walk. We then created some beautiful artwork using paints and collage to create and Autumn display. We have also enjoyed reading our class novel-The Grunts! 

In Maths we have been concentrating on place value of numbers upto 100, as well as learning out 2 x tables! We have used lots of practical equipment ot support our leanring in maths such as bead strings and Rek n Reks.  

In Science we have looked at the properties of materials and how suitable they are for different purposes. We have also been looking at how  we can stay safe online in computing.
