P R E V I O U S L Y …

We have looked at Space, The Final Frontier - during this Science theme we used ‘George’s Secret Key to the Universe’ by Lucy and Stephen Hawking as our class book. Our Geography based topic Water, Water, Everywhere saw us following the route and life of the river to the sea, and exploring the life of the Deep - we had a fantastic trip to Bristol Aquarium and IMAX cinema. Whilst studying World War Two we had a trip to ‘Steam’ in Swindon and read ‘Carrie’s War’ by Nina Bawden. Phase 3 have also investigated Woodlands, discovered the two wheeled world of Bicycles and travelled back in time to Ancient Greece and the Olympics. Britannia Romana -  Have you seen any of the ‘Rotten Romans’ in Horrible Histories on the CBBC site? What did the Romans ever do for us?! Our Fantastic Mr Dahl! theme was inspired by the story of Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. During this Science focus theme we investigated rocks and soils and learned about native mammals and their habitats; we also put on an amazing performance of Fantastic Mr Fox – The Play for our Magical Day at the end of term. The Around the World in 64 Days theme used the book by Jules Verne (Around the World in 80 Days) and we did it in 64 days because that is how many days there were in the term. This was a geography based topic. Egypt was our theme for There’s a Pharaoh in our Classroom! Have you read the very funny There’s a Pharaoh in our Bath! by Jeremy Strong and the sequel (a follow up) called Let’s Do the Pharaoh!? Our class trip was to the Egyptian Gallery at the Bristol City Museum, which was amazing. Phase 2 have also had these themes: Wool,  the Tudors and Darwin’s Chest – how very evolutionary!
