Term 5

Newsflash! 

The Leopards' class will be having an English Civil War Day on Wednesday 2nd May. We will be finding out about what the King was up to and the causes of the Civil War and how the armies were organised. Children can dress up, if they would like to, as kings, queens, princes, princesses, Civil War soldiers, ordinary 17th century people or children from the time. We will also be doing some other historical activities and I hope we all have lots of fun and learn a bit about the past!

 

This term we will be learning about Kings and Queens. We will focus on King Alfred, Henry VIII, Charles I and the English Civil War and Elizabeth II.

In science we will start learning about plants, including the parts of a plant and what plants need to grow - this topic will continue into term 6.

In English we will concentrate on writing a story based on 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and writing recounts.

There will also be the year 2 SATS tests happening in May.

Term 4

This term we shall be finding out about Dragons! We will be discovering the different sorts of dragons and the habitats they live in and their diets. In English we start the term with poetry and then write non-chronological reports. We are very lucky to have a cricket coach coming to work with the Leopards, so P.E. will be on Wednesdays as we benefit from expert training. In maths we are working on fractions and continuing to count in twos, fives and tens.

A busy but fun term!

Term 3

Welcome back! I hope that everyone had fun over the Christmas break. This term the topic in the Leopards' class is called 'Would a dinosaur make a good pet?' and we shall be exploring all the benefits and problems of keeping a dinosaur as a pet. As part of this topic we will be investigating 'Living things and their habitats' and finding out the conditions and environments that a variety of living creatures need to survive and thrive. On Wednesday 10th January Longleat will be visiting with some of their smaller animals and the children will be able to see the animals close to and ask the experts any questions they like. 

 

 

The Leopards are great engineers and love practising their skills with a bit of junk modelling so we created some new masterpieces in litter week. See if you can spot a slug, a birthday cake and an amazing hat!

We had a great time at the library. Tracy Hager the librarian read some stories and made them really exciting! Don't forget you can join the library for free if you take proof of address with you. They have lots of special events.

More amazing homework projects by the Leopards.

The other day we went out to search for signs of dinosaurs. We found footprints and an egg!

This terrifying film was found on the CCTV!

Longleat visit

Longleat visited the Leopards today. They brought 2 hissing cockroaches, 2 pythons, 2 pancake tortoises, 1 armadillo and a tarantula! It was very exciting and all the Leopards were excellent and worked very well with the animals.

Term 2

 

This term we will be finding out all about the great engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. On Thursday 2nd November the topic gets off to an exciting start with our trip to the SS Great Britain in Bristol. All the children need to be in school by 8.25 am so that we will all be ready to set off at 8.45 am. Everyone needs a waterproof coat, a packed lunch in a back pack and an extra drink. All the children need to wear school uniform but trainers would be a good idea as the cobbles around the ship can be uneven and slippery and there are a lot of steps on board! The trip includes a workshop and will be an excellent insight into Victorian times.

We will be working on engineering projects all term and I would be very grateful for any small boxes and cardboard tubes for our constructions. 

It should be a great term!
