This half term our topic is 'Crumbling Castles'.
In Class 2 we are looking forward to the coming of Spring and the exciting outdoor learning opportunities the warmer weather will bring!
We will be immersing ourselves in the story of 'Tangled' where we will be using the Talk for Writing approach to learn the story and then writing lots of descriptions, recounts, WANTED posters, mini scenes, poetry and character comparisons before innovating and inventing our own stories. This half term, we will also be learning about castles so we will write non-chronological reports and information texts about these fascinating buildings.
In R.E we will be exploring the Easter story and why Christians call the day Jesus was crucified 'Good Friday'. We will also reflect on this half term's value of kindness.
In Science we will be investigating 'rocks'. We will look at and investigate different types of rocks, how they are formed and how fossils are formed.
In Geography we will be exploring map making, human and physical geography and the compass points, using all of these skills to produce our own maps of both familiar and imaginary places.
In History we will be learning all about castles; from their special design features to weapons and defence, castle life and the types of castles. We will also be going to visit one of the best Cornish castles to learn even more!
Check out the photos below which show lots of the amazing things we have been doing in our learning!
