Our Spring term topic is called 'Wales Under Attack'.
During this term, we will be finding out about life in Wales long, long ago.
We will begin our topic by finding out about what it was like living in Wales during Celtic times. We will find out about their homes and clothes, as well as look at how they may have spent their time each day. This topic will start with a virtual trip to St Fagans.
We will then look at how the Romans invaded the country and will find out about the reasons they wanted to do this. We will think about how the Celts may have reacted.
We will look at the Welsh landscape and think about how this may have helped the Celts defend themselves. We will then think about how the Romans changed the lives of the people in Wales.
As part of our topic, we will look at Welsh artists that have painted Welsh landscapes.
Our PE day is Monday. Children are to wear their school P.E kit. There is information about this on our letters page.
We will continue looking at the importance of our class rules as we work together as ambitious and capable learners. We will be thinking about our RATE values to help with this.
We enjoyed collecting a range of leaves from our school grounds to inspire our product design for next half term.
Back in class we began our product designs inspired by what we had found.
We enjoyed our visit from Dogs Trust learning about how we can approach dogs safely.
This week we completed our diary entries. This half term we have been taking on the role of Vincent Van Gogh to help us explore emotions and different way we communicate them. Together we created a diary entry from the story ‘Camille and the Sunflowers’. We used pictures and actions to help us memorise this before making it our own in our literacy lessons.
We have been exploring ways that creative dance and music can help us communicate emotions
