Invades and settlers

We have had a very busy few weeks since we have been back! 

Our new topic this term is called Inveders and settlers. So far we have learned about how and when Britain has been invaded and by whom. 

In Literacy we have been learning how to create suspense and mystery.  We used instruments to build up suspension in a short piece of writing. 


Blast Off

So far this term we have been lerning about the solar system and space. We began our topic with a brilliant beginning of the space dome. 

The children Enjoyed trying to convince us that the earth wasn't flat,  they came up with some very interesting ideas and were able to convince us in the end! 

We also created our own solar system using a scale to work out the sizes.  

We had great fun learning about the eight main moon phases and recreating them using Oreos. 

We are now learning about the first moon landings in 1969 and the international space stations.
