Autumn 2

Our topic this half term is 'London Calling - From A to Z'.

 

We will be learning all about our local area, schools from the past and London landmarks.

 

Have a look at some of the fantastic things we have been up to in Maple Class!

Week 6

This week we started our Science work on Materials. We explored the different materials objects are made from by playing a feelings game. The children used their sense of touch to identify the object and then decide what it is made from.

The children went outside to find different objects and then discussed with their friends what they were made from. The children recorded their findings.

We then looked around the classroom and outside and sorted the objects into the different categories, using our knowledge of materials. 

Week 5

In our topic work this week we have been learning about transport from the past present and future.

The children found this very interesting learning about how people travelled around in the past and comparing this to our present day modes of transport.

We had a very long discussion about what travel may look like in the future and how we can be more environmentally friendly with our travel in the future.

Week 4

This week we visited the London Metropolitan Archives to learn about the history of bridges in London.

We looked at old maps of the River Thames and learnt how more bridges were build to accommodate the growing cities population.

The children created their own towers using straws and connectors and used their engineering knowledge about shapes to build the towers tall and strong. 

Week 3

We had a wonderful trip to Tower Bridge.

The children were so excited when we got to the top and looked through the glass floor. We recorded the vehicles we could see and one group were very lucky to see the bridge open.

The children got an amazing view of the River Thames and spent time drawing the different London landmarks they could see.
