National Storytelling Week – Harry Potter Night
To celebrate National Storytelling Week, every class celebrated a magical book night on Thursday 3rd February. We focused on the first Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. We read the extract from chapter 5 where Harry potter chooses his wand in Diagon Alley whilst preparing for his first year at Hogwarts. After watching a clip of this part of the book, we went on a hunt for the perfect stick to create our own wand. Take a look at our fantastic wands:
Our science topic this term is: Living things and their habitats.
We have identified and classified animals and plants into groups and used a range of classification keys. In this lesson, we went on an invertebrate hunt and then classified the animals we had found using their characteristics.
Our History topic this term is: The Chronology of Transport.
We have used primary and secondary sources to explore the following enquiry questions:
How many different kinds of transport would there have been in Worksop long ago, and has transport always been the same?
What challenges might people have had in the past when using transport, and why did people not have better transport?
Why do things change and why did they change in the order they did?
Would local people have thought more about the turnpike road, canal or railway?
Who would make most use of rail travel and how did rail travel benefit the community?
How and why has transport changed in recent times?
