This half term we will be learning about the four seasons with a particular focus on Autumn. We will be observing the weather daily using our calendar as well as discuss the different items of clothing that can be worn throughout the Autumn season. We will also be going on an Autumn walk, were we will look for different signs of Autumn and collect some items to create our own artwork in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.
During our RE lessons, we will be learning about how Christians celebrate Harvest. We will be tasting different Harvest vegetables and using some of these to make our own Harvest soup as part of our Design and Technology lessons.
As part of our DT lessons, we have taken part in the 'Christ Church Bake Off'. Each class designed their own bake, baked them and then carefully decorated them. We chose to theme our bake around our science topic 'seasonal changes'. We each designed an Autumn leaf and thought about which sweets we could use to decorate them with. We had lots of fun making our shortbread biscuits and even more fun eating them!
Our History topic this term is 'How life has changed'. We will be looking at how our lives have changed since we were born and also use a variety of different sources to identify how others lives have changed over time. We will be looking at home life and school life from the past and use a range of key vocabulary to talk about the past.
