Autumn Term 2018

Let's Celebrate

Our topic is now 'Let's Celebrate'. We are learning lots about how people around the world celebrate different events. So far we have covered Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance and Hanukkah.

Super Humans

Our topic this half term is called Super Humans. It has a science theme based around the human body.

We will be finding out about:

  • What the main parts of the body are called
  • What the senses are and their uses
  • How the brain connects to other body parts
  • How to eat healthily and get enough exercise
  • How and why we use medicines
  • Why body hygiene is important

We recommend sharing some of the books below with your child:

  • Dr Suess- Ear book, Eye book, Nose book, Tooth book
  • Katie Daynes- Look inside your body
  • Any non fiction books about the human body

During English lesson, as part of our topic, we will be enjoying lots of super hero books. We also recommend these:

  • Nick Sharratt- Super Daisy
  • Mini Grey- Traction man
  • Lizzy Stewart- Juniper Jupiter

We highly recommend using your local library, it is free to join and you will find lots of quality books.

 

Activities to do with your child-

Researching the role of a health care professional

Involve children in the planning and preparation of healthy meals

Discuss the importance of keeping ourselves clean and the safe use of medicines

Using your senses to taste, smell and feel new things. E.g. feely bag full of different textures, smell pots and tasting new flavours from around the world.

Hanukkah

As part of our 'Celebrations' topic we have been learning about how Jews celebrate Hanukkah. We have made dreidels in school and written some fabulous newspaper reports on 'Mirale Oil'. 

Diwali

Diwali is another celebration we have learned about. We had a wonderful time learning special dances and trying tasty food with a special visitor.

India

For World Food Day, we learned about India. We made and tasted some Barfi Sweets, which most of us enjoyed. Here's what we thought:

"It tastes like coconut. It tastes the best!"

"It tastes really yummy because you can taste the coconut."

"It tastes fudgy and creamy."

"I like them because they have coconut on the top!"

"I don't like it because I don't like toffee."

"It doesn't taste very nce because it's made with milk."

 

We also learned about the Taj Mahal and Rangoli designs and produced some lovely art work about them. 

We created a fact file and can tell you lots about India.

Supertato to the rescue

We have been reading Supertato in class and we've been learning new vocabulary to describe heroes and villains. 

In class, Evil Pea stole our snacks and left a pear taped into our fruit bowl. We wrote some marvellous letters to Supertato asking for help.

Pop into class to find out more and read our letters.

All about Eyes

We have learned lots about our eyes in topic and how we see. We can discuss the pupil, iris and optic nerve and their functions.

Mrs White asked us 'Do nocturnal animals have bigger eyes?' Lots of us thought that they would because they need to catch prey in the dark. We thought that their eyes (especially the pupil) might be bigger to let in more light.

Poetry Day

We have learned The Garden Year by Sara Coleridge for National Poetry day. We performed it beautifully in assembly to the rest of the school.
