Autumn Term 2021

Our brand new whole school topic for Autumn term is ...

Summer Term

This term has gotten off to a ROARING start with our special DINOSAUR experience day! The children had an amazing time meeting Zeus, the cheeky 17ft T-Rex, and the baby dinosaurs, too! 

The children then wrote their own dinosaur adventure using a range of sentence openers, thinking about ways to build tension and suspense in their writing!

Spring Term

Our Spring Term whole school topic is Water World! We have been learning about water in our geography, focusing on rivers and the water cycle. We have linked this to our learning on changing states in Science! Throughout this topic, Owls class have created some beautiful art work, here are a selection of our water themed art projects during lockdown 3.0!


The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai

We have been inspired by the work of Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. Take at a look at our beautiful work created during home learning!
