Latest News- TESTING THE STRENGTH OF DIFFERENT MAGNETS.

We have been having fun in Science this term learning all about forces and magnets. We have explored the different poles on a magnet and how they repel and attract. We have also explored how different types of magnet have different magnetic strength. Have a look at the photos of us all investigating with different types of magnets.

Autumn term

The children have come back to school after the summer break enthusiastic to learn and looking forward to our year together. During the Autumn term we will be covering a range of topics.

In Maths we will focus on place value and addition and subtraction skills. 

English will involve a study of the book Leon and the Place Between.

Forces and Magnets is our Science topic for the first half term and we will be completing some Design Technology by making and designing our own magnetic games. The second part of the term will be spent studying the topic of light.In History we will be looking at inventions of the Victrian era and how the canal and railways transport system developed during this time.

Homework

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday and will take place outdoors. Due to the weather children are encouraged to wear leggins, jogging bottoms or tracksuits for PE and to have their kit with them everyday so that we can try and choose our PE slot according to the better weather.

Music

This year we are fortunate to be able to have guitar tuition for the whole class. These lessons will be on a Monday afternoon. If your child has a guitar it would be great if they could bring it to school on a Monday to use in the lesson. If not we do have guitars in school for the children to use and hopefully they will be able to bring one home to practise on in a few weeks time.
