This term we are exploring the topic in History 'What has changed since my grandparents were young?' We will be looking at how life has changed since we were young and then our grandparents by exploring toys, objects, schools and artefacts.
In Science we are looking at the Seasons and in particular the changes that occur within Autumn and what we might find. We will create Autumn artwork, go on an Autumn walk and explore the weather.
In RE our topic is 'Harvest' and 'Christmas'.
We have been looking at the natural materials which Autumn has brought such as autumnal leaves, conkers and pinecones. We have sketched them and also made collages with them in the style by artist Andy Goldsworthy. We have also mixed colours to make colours of crimson, gold, orange and brown to make hand and finger prints for a season display. We also designed hearts and crosses in our RE lessons whilst reflecting on all the reasons why we are thankful to God. Check out our displays below...
We have also been discussing how Christians celebrate Harvest and visited Christ Church to see the Harvest celebrations.
We made our own special Harvest Soup from vegetables too.
We then tasted a range of delicious harvest fruit! Our favourite was the strawberry!
