Curriculum

Summer Term

In Computing we have been using the Beebots to practise our programming skills.  We have entered a set of instructions (an algorithm) into the Beebot to direct it around a map to a particular location.  Practise definitely makes perfect with this skill! 

In Art we have been practising our pencil control and drawing skills (as well as taking advantage of the beautiful weather!) by going outside to make observational drawings of trees and leaves. 

In Science this term we are learning all about plants.  

Take a look at our video describing the life cycle of a plant.

We think that plants need water and sun in order to grow healthily but in order to investigate this we are conducting our own experiment.

 

We have planted some seeds, keeping some out of sunlight and not watering others.  Which seed will be the healthiest?  Come back in a few weeks to find out the results......

In Music we have been using instruments to help us find the pulse of a song.  We have also been practising finding the correct pitch when learning our new song, which is called 'Friendship'.

In R.E we have been learning all about the Bible and why it is such a special book for Christians.  We have been enjoying hearing all of the stories about Jesus and we even practising telling the story 'Jesus calms the storm.'

Explorers Day

 

We really enjoyed the chance to dress up as an explorer and celebrate the end of our topic. We discovered more about our local area and practised our mapping skills.  In the afternoon we enjoyed designing and making our very own rockets.

 

  We even created another installment of Christ Church News at 10.

Geography

 

This term in Geography we are developing our atlas skills.  We used an atlas to label the countries of the United Kingdom and their capital cities, as well as draw their flags.  We enjoyed looking at our atlases, they even told us more information about space!

History

 

This term we have enjoyed learning all about significant people who have changed our world.  We have especially enjoyed learning all about the exciting adventures of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. We compared their missions and discussed why they were so significant.

We looked at a variety of significant people and discussed what made them significant.

Autumn Term

In Geography this term we have been learning all about the world we live in.  We have been practising a catchy little song to help us remember all of the continents in the world!

 

We have also been comparing what it is like for a child living in our city and a child living in Australia (Sydney) and Africa (Nairobi)

 

We were very excited to write a letter to a child in Australia to ask them all about what their lives are like....keep checking back for our replies!

 

We celebrated the end of our Australia topic with a fun-filled Australia day!  We looked at aboriginal artwork, made our own didgeridoo's and dressed up as Australian animals.

In Science we have been exploring objects and the materials they are made from.  We went on a materials hunt around school to see just how many different materials are used in our every day life.

This term we are enjoying studying the Titanic in History.  We have been exploring the differences between the passengers and what they could expect to see on board.  

 

We created our own versions of the Titanic out of lego and during a Philosophy 4 Children we discussed who would have made it onto a lifeboat and asked the question 'Should you go back if there is space in your life boat?'

Take a look at our news report all about the sinking of the Titanic!
