Welcome to the Autumn term 2018!   

         

The Autumn term has begun with air raid drills, rationing and evacuations. As part of our topic, the children visited Holdenby House in Northampton to experience life as an evacuee. The children learnt about how food was rationed due, to food shortages, the Make Do and Mend project and they experienced hiding in a Morrison shelter. 

                                 

 

                       Science

Over the past few weeks, the children have been learning about the teeth. Within lessons, the children have learnt about the different types of human teeth and how they differ from animal teeth. The children have created their own moulds of animal teeth using clay. 

In addition to this, the children have been learning about the digestive system and the journey your food takes as it travels through your body. Can the children remember the names of the organs involved in this process?  

                                                                                       Black History Month 

As part of our Black history week, Ospreys class took part in an African drumming workshop. The children enjoyed learning to play the djembe drums which originate from West Africa. Throughout the workshop, they learnt about pitch, call and response, as well as some Ghanaian songs.                                                                                                                                       ...
