The Museum Of Somerset
We had a very enjoyable day at the museum on the 14th November with a focus on Somerset myths and legends. We learnt all about the tale of the Gurt Wurm and the Somerset gargoyles - the 'hunky punks' - which we created from clay. A tour of the museum followed, where we turned detective in searching out clues amongst the many artefacts on display.
WUNDERSMITH! Don't forget this fantastic sequel to our class reader is out now!
Go and grab yourself a copy. I managed to get a signed edition...
Autumn Term 1
Magic is happening in Wyvern class at the start of the new school year. The mythical Wyvern creature will be designed and its life cycle created. Magical poetry inspired by Kit Wright's The Magic Box will be written and 3D shape will be used to create actual magical boxes from designed nets. Narrative skills will be evident as the children take inspiration from the short film 'Swing Of Change' and our class reader 'Nevermoor'. The magical world of Force Land will allow the children to have a greater understanding of forces in action and for them to take on the role of health & safety officers and ride designers for a new theme park. Ride designs will include additional ICT skills of graphic lettering and 3D map making. Mathematical knowledge will be improved through place value, 4 operations, shape and fractions. In adition to this, PE will focus on basketball & netball skills and in French lessons the children will learn to navigate around a French town and identify common shops. Music lessons (brass instruments) will take place every Wednesday.
