Everyone is excited about our new topic: 'Was America discovered?'. Each class will be learning about different aspects of the question, including a timeline of America and explorers thought to have 'discovered' America. The children will challenge perceptions and develop their critical thinking skills. 
 
As many of you will know, every topic starts with a bang! - an eventful 'launch day' where the whole school comes together as a community and participates  in activities, challenges, events and discussions on our new topic. This day immerses children in the topic, promoting new ideas and questions for us to plan from. Our launch day this term will take place in the  week commencing 15th May. So watch this space for a new video! 
The Spring Term finished with a survival day. Over the term we have investigated why it is that we live on Earth and not anywhere else. Class Tamar looked at the importance of water in geography and the states of matter in science.

Continuing our Autumn topic we spent the day being engineers like Isambard Kingdom Brunel. His legacy from Victorian times still affects our lives today. How strong can you build a bridge with just 5 pieces of paper, string and a bit of tape?
Our Autumn Term Topic was 'What did the Victorians do for us?'. We wanted to know what it was like to go to school in Victorian Times, so we looked in our school log book. Before half term we took part in a Victorian school day. Watch the video below.
