Spring Term - Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
See the castle up ahead. Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archers aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower...
Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let's build a brand new one...whose is the tallest? Can you measure it?
Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals that live underground.
What's that sound? I hear little hooves going trip trap, trip trap over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side.
And finally met the three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they'll be safe from the big, bad wolf.
No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!
During science week the Spiders became archaeologist discovering what really went into the poo from the past.
Today we have celebrated the festival of Diwali. We have had a wonderful time, dressing up in Hindu clothes and doing some Bollywood dancing with Sunita. We have also created Rangoli patterns on the school playground with chalk and coloured some in ourselves. We have sent 'Happy Diwali' cards to each other and watched a film which explained more about the festival of lights and what it is all about. What a fun and fantastic day! Thank you to Jithan's mum for donating some saris for the teachers to wear!
This term we are stepping back in time to the era of Oliver Twist, as we kick off our topic with a day in the life of a Victorian. The children will be dressing up and experiencing what life was like in a school, kitchen and on a wash day over 150 years ago! Look out for fab photos from the day!
We will also be finding out about what life was like in the West End of Lincoln in the past and seeing how the streets around the area have changed. We will use maps to help us with this and understand how to read maps and use symbols and a key. We will also be programming computers using simple apps on the ipad to follow instructions to navigate around a map of our own creating!
And of course we will be getting ready for the Christmas play...Is the Midwife calling?!!
