Autumn 2

Scrumdiddlyuptious

This half term we took part in a brand new topic based around food. The prime question we posed to our pupils was "Can children be chefs?" The children had lots of questions and things they wanted to find out and here is a list of key questions which we based our learning around...

- Are some foods special?

- Where does our food come from?

- What food can I eat in Manchester? 

- Cane I make a healthy dish? 

- What food did my grandparents eat? 

- How has food changed over time? 

- Do all fruits and vegetables look the same inside?

As a result, we have used key leanring in Geography, History, DT and Art to produce some wonderful work and learn some amazing things!

Maths

This half term we have continued to build upon our understanding of the four mathematical operations by introducing multiplication and division of 2, 5 and 10. We looked at different ways of grouping and sharing and also investigated links between multiplication and division. Have a look at some our work here...

We began this half term focusing upon writing Recounts after our visit to Smithills Farm. 

The children have done a fantastic job creating purposeful writing. After our walk to Aldi, they produced some fantastic, independent recounts. 

After this, we also completed our first poetry unit of the year. We used our four senses (smell, touch, sight and hearing) to come up with our very own "Snowglobe" poems.

This half term we have focused on the fact that the story of Jesus’ birth is a religious story. We have learnt that Christians prepare to celebrate this event though a special, Christian time of Advent. Have a look at some of the exciting ways we have prepared for Jesus' arrival below...

We began this year learning about warning stories. Our class story was Little Red Riding Hood and we really enjoyed learning the classic tale. Eventually some of the children created their own warning stories and they were fantastic!
