In Terms 3 and 4 we will be stepping back in time!
We begin Term 3 being inspired by the story The Princess and the White Bear King by Tanya Batt. This story inspires our own letter writing, use of descriptive language and sets of instructions.
A Castles WOW day at the beginning of Term 4 helps us to get excited about our history part of this unit. In our WOW day, in addition to dressing up, we learn a little about heraldry and create our own shields by paper weaving, we will create a model trebuchet and measure how far we can fire 'boulders' and we will even try out some jousting!. We will then continue to learn about castles and what they were like to live in.
As part of our science topic, we will be looking into the uses of everyday materials including investigating whether the same material can be used for different uses, investigating whether bricks are absorbent and even creating a piece of artwork by resisting the wax!
