Watch this space for exciting updates about what we have learnt this half term!
Autumn 1 2019
This half term, our topic will be Kings, Queens and Castles!
We kicked off our topic by looking at Kings and Queens that we already knew.
We spent some time researching Queen Elizabeth II.
We found out lots of interesting facts about her and her family!
Using the money KS1 had raised from Enterprise Week, we had a special visitor who came in and spoke to use about Kings and Queens from a long time ago.
We would like to thank the PTA for making this happen with their kind donation!!
Later in the term, we began to look at castles. We located famous castles in and around Yorkshire using maps and then started to look at the features of a castle. Then as a challenge, we got to build our own castles! Once they were built, we had great fun trying to knock then down!
In English, we have been creative and have been writing character and setting descriptions.
We looked in depth at Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood.
We mapped out both the stories as a class to understand what makes up each part of a good story.
We used our fantastics to help us create detailed character and setting descriptions.
This half term, we also celebrated Black History Month.
We looked at various influential figures including Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Lewis Hamilton.
We then took an indepth look at Albert Johanneson. Albert was a South African professional footballer who was one of the first high-profile black men to play top-flight football in England.
Albert Johanneson played 200 times for Leeds from 1961 to 1969 and appeared in the 1965 Wembley final. He is recognised as being the first person of African heritage to play in the FA Cup final in 1965.
