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 Olive Class!

Week Six

 

This week in Art and DT we have been busy designing and making bridges.

 

We looked at a range of different bridges from around the world, as well as thinking about our trips to Tower Bridge and the London Metropolitan Archives. We used this inspiration to sketch our own bridge designs which we then used to build our models.

 

We used junk modelling to create our bridges and had to think carefully about the strongest materials and shapes to use. 

Week Five

 

This week we had a fantastic trip to Tower Bridge.

 

First we went to the Engine Rooms to see how Tower Bridge used to be powered. After that we were able to go up to the top of Tower Bridge and along the walkway and glass floor which was very exciting! At the top we sketched some of the buildings we could see and counted the modes of transport we could spot.

 

In the afternoon we learnt the story of the 'Jumping Bus', and then used iPads to make animations of this story which was great fun.

 

We all had a brilliant day!

Week Four

 

We had a great visit to the London Metropolitan Archives.

 

We learnt about London in the past and looked at a range of maps of London in the past. 

 

We also looked at some bridge designs and photos of what some bridges over the River Thames used to look like. 

 

After that we worked in groups to build our own towers and bridges. It was great fun!

Week Two

 

This week we started looking at maps.

 

We looked at a range of maps including a world map, a globe, a London Underground map and birds eye view maps of the local area.

 

We learnt what birds eye view means and that maps are drawn looking down on an area.

 

We went up to the Sky garden to look down on our playground and spotted human and physical features from the Sky garden. We then had a go at making our own maps of the playground with some key features we spotted.

Week One

 

This week to celebrate Bonfire Night we have been making some beautiful firework paintings using chalk.
