Autumn Term

History – Fire of London

Today we became archaeologists. We looked at sources from the past and decided whether or not they are useful for helping us understand more about the Fire of London. We decided that the following sources were useful: a leather water bucket, a map of London in 1666, a newspaper article and diary entry from the day the fire started. We then discussed what these sources might tell us about the Fire of London.

We then learnt about the common forms of transport in London, including the underground tube, buses and taxis. Children drew some fantastic red buses, just like the ones that transport people all around the capital city!

 

Maths

In Maths this week, we continued our addition and subtraction topic by looking at taking away. We used pictures to help us complete subtraction sentences in different ways. Many of us challenged ourselves to solve word problems using this skill and some of us wrote our own subtraction number stories.

English

This week in English, we have been reading ‘Wanted: The Perfect Pet’ by Fiona Roberton. We decided what our perfect pet would be and then wrote an advertisement for it, just like Henry did in the book. 

 

Geography

 

This week in Geography, we recapped the names of the 4 countries of the UK and identified these on a map. We then used our knowledge and a map to help us name label the seas surrounding the UK.

Science

 

This week, we started our new Plants topic by recognising and naming common plants.

Art

In Art this week, we used our knowledge of different lines to help us draw houses from around the world. Take a look at our artwork below:

RE Day

We have been looking at creation stories in RE this week. Children started by explaining how they think the world was created. We then learnt about the Christian and Sikh creation stories and compared them.

Worksop Bloggers Challenge

We were all very excited to open the magical box for the Worksop Bloggers challenge this week. Children inspected the various items in the box which included different potions, magic dust, a mysterious recipe and a witch’s cauldron. They then chose an object and predicted what they thought the it was used for. Take a look at our predictions on our class blog: http://robin2019.norbridgeblogs.net/

English

This week in English, our learning has been focused around the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. We started the week by retelling the story through action so we knew it really well. We then practised using adjectives by describing the characters and setting and at the end of the week, tried to rewrite the fairy tale ourselves.

 

Maths

In Maths this week, we have extended our knowledge of place value in numbers up to 10. We have counted backwards, identified one more and one less and matched sets of objects to check if there are enough.
