Autumn Term 2021

Welcome to the Autumn Term, 2021 Page.

Please make sure you keep regularly visiting us as we always try to update this page every few days. This page will contain some examples of the work we are doing in and outside of class.

Science : Fossils.

Today we had the opportunity to look closely at some fossils brought into school by pupils in class 4. Fossils are fascinating as they give us an insight into life millions of years ago. Finding out about the past helps us to understand more about the present and how animals have evolved and adapted over time.

Pathways English : Bringing History to life.

A huge thank you as one of our pupils brought in a de activated bullet recovered from their Great Grandad. The use of bullets during the Second World War links so well with our Pathways Text of Star of Fear, Star of Hope. A story centred around the Jewish persecution by the German Nazi Army.

Rest Easy and Well being.

Today in the hall we welcomed Emlly and Karen from The NHS Rest Easy Team to talk to all our year 4, year 5 and year 6 about emotional well being. We listened and then worked in mixed age groups to talk together about changes and how we have all coped.

Science Knowledge Map

Artefacts on Charles Darwin.

Today we began exploring artefacts that had been sent to us from the Shropshire Library Service. The idea behind these artefacts is to experience real life hands on experiences. We looked closely at some of the objects using magnifying glass and microscope.

Science Topic: Evolution and Inheritance.

It was exciting today when we received our very special Shropshire Library Loan Study box. This is a special item all about Charles Darwin and his contribution towards Evolution and Inheritance. It was wonderful examining the artefacts which included skulls, fossils and other resources.

Linking Learning - Geography.

Over the summer, pupils began to think about our Autumn Term learning. Each pupil selected an aspect of study and then created their work. It was fabulous to see it all when we came back to school. Amazing start to our school year together.

Happy Birthday.

Today was a special day as we celebrated another Birthday ! The sun was shining and the cake was delicious !

Katsushika Hokusai 

Today we started to look at the work of this famous Japanese Artist. It was fascinating seeing the work which includes his most famous piece, The Great Wave.
