Autumn term 2-2021

(P.E kits to be worn on Mondays this half term please)


This half term, our topic is ‘Rock on’.

In science, we will be looking at rocks and fossils, and learning about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning.

For our history work, we are learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

We will be using some great stories in English to reflect these times: How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, and Stone Age Boy.

Look out later in the month for our Woolly Mammoth models, as well as some Bronze Age pots.

In our maths work, we will be continuing to work on adding and subtracting two three digit numbers, and learning how to set this out in columns.




How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

We read the story about How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. We found out some facts about woolly mammoths which helped us to understand why the little girl in the story found it so difficult to wash hers.

Here we are getting our own animals dirty in the mud, and then having a go at washing them:

We then wrote some great instructions about washing animals, using imperative verbs and prepositions.

We followed instruction to make our own woolly mammoths out of empty milk bottles.

Autumn Term 1-2021

We had a great time dressing up for Halloween while writing some spooky poems.

for our geography work we went to Ryecroft Park to find out what different activities the park and hall are used for.

We made use of the natural environment to make these fantastic sculpture and pictures from fallen branches, leaves pine cones, seeds and feathers.

We looked at the different trees and enjoyed the nature all around us

We looked at Ryecroft Hall and talked about all the activities that you can do there.

And finally we got to play on the play equipment.

Autumn Term-1

This half term, we are looking at our local area. We have been making maps of the area around our school and looking at how we use the outdoor space. We will be taking a walk to The Snipe Retail Park as well as Ryecroft Park, to see how the land is being used there.

We are learning about healthy eating and nutrition, and hope to make our own soup.

In our English work, we are reading George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. We have already had lots of fun making our own medicines and then designing posters to persuade people to buy it!



Would you buy our marvellous medicines?

We worked together to make these fantastic posters telling people why they should come to Aldwyn:

We had a great time at Ryecroft Park last week. The sun was shining, and we set off to look at how the park is used and the different activities you can do there. 

We loved watching the bowlers, and certainly gave them a bit of encouragement!

we were surprised at how many games you could make up and play without the need for any equipment or to even go on the play park. 

We had a great time running amongst the grass and trees and played games such as racing, tig and hide and seek.

As part of our design and technology work, we tasted different types of tomato soup- tinned, fresh and packet cup-a-soup. We evaluated each one as we went along. The class favourite was the tinned cream of tomato, as it was smooth and creamy.

look out over the next few weeks for us making our own soup recipe.

We designed a vegetarian soup which had elements from all the five food groups. We added pasta and beans for carbohydrate and protein, and some children chose to sprinkle grated cheese on top to include dairy. We made a white loaf in the bread maker. What a nutritional and well balanced meal. Delicious!

Making and tasting our own soup

Halloween fun on the last day of our first half term.
