Spring Term Updates

Spring 1 '24

What a busy yet fantastic half term we’ve had in LKS2!
After settling back in after Christmas, we were ready to sink our teeth into our learning.
We’ve really enjoyed working with clay in Art this half term. We have explored bell beaker pottery and enjoyed sketching some of the intricate designs in our books. We also loved exploring using different tools and techniques to create similar designs in clay. We will continue to use these skills we have developed to help us decorate our very own pots. We are very excited to see our final pieces of work and evaluate them.
In RE, we’ve explored pilgrimages and why these special journeys are incredibly important to different religions. In Computing, we’ve explored using 2Logo and in Geography, we’ve enjoyed learning all about rivers! We have explored the journey of a rivers, using atlases to find and locate important rivers in the world and have even explored the many different reasons behind why they are so useful.
In History this half term, we’ve loved learning more about the Stone Age. We have made inferences from pictures, explored artefacts from the past and thought carefully about what these artefacts might suggest to us about this period of history. In English, we’ve also worked hard on  
writing our very own Stone Age story based on the book ‘Stone Age Boy’. We’ve collected some amazing vocabulary and used some of our knowledge from history to inspire our ideas for writing. To top it all off, we ended our half term with a wonderful trip to Creswell Crags. We enjoyed an exciting cave tour and also developed our survival skills by using teamwork to build shelters. We were also lucky enough to explore the interesting exhibitions and enjoy a fresh gorge walk!

What an exciting end to a wonderful half term.
