A warm welcome to Willow Class! Our teachers' names are:
Our geography lessons explored meerkats and why they aren't suited to the north pole. We have been looking at animals that live in hot and cold climates and why they are suited to their environment. We had a class trip to Peak Wildlife Park (pictures to follow) and Maple class got the opportunity to see and learn about meerkats, wallabies, penguins and many more animals.
In science we investigated light and dark. We are looked at why some people are afraid of the dark and we learnt about different light sources. We explored shadows and we are going to create our own shadow puppets and use them to act out the story `I want my light on!`.
Our history topic is, `Would the Beatles win the X-Factor?` We have looked at the Beatles and
culture in the 1970s. We will then compare this to the present day.
Our Science topic is 'Which materials should The Three Little Pigs have used to build their house?'. We will explore the properties of different materials and their uses. We will also look at how to make a material stronger.
Our geography topic is, `Where did the wheels on the bus go?` In this topic we are looking at different forms of transport and finding out where the children have visited in the UK. We will also be taking a trip on a mini bus to find out about how people travel.
We will be exploring why Neil Armstrong was a brave person. Through this topic we will be looking at famous people from the past, their achievements and why they are important.
Our science topic is, `Why are humans not like tigers?`. We will be exploring why some animals live in a zoo and why some animals are wild and the differences between these animals. This topic will also give the children the chance to talk about their own pets and their experiences of animals from around the world.
