Autumn Term 2018
Well what a busy term we have had and a great start in Key Stage Two! We began the term with a visit to Manor Farm Riding Stables. Whilst there we learnt about the food horses eat, the tack that horses need, how to groom a horse and we even mucked out a stable!
After that we visited West Lodge Rural Centre to learn about harvesting and how it has changed over the years. We went on a tractor ride across the fields and found some hedgerows full of fruit to harvest. There were lots of blackberries so we picked enough to take back to school so we could make our own jam.
Back at school we learnt how to country dance just like people did years ago to celebrate the end of harvest. We invited our family to a special harvest tea where we even managed to involve them in our country dancing! We also had scones to eat but unfortunately our jam was a little stiff and we couldn't actually get it out of the jar... thank goodness we had some shop bought jam!!
This term we have also learnt to play the recorder. We learnt four different notes which enabled us to play some tunes. Also, we learnt how to read some basic notation and listen to each other so we could improve on our playing. At the end we performed a concert to our parents, we were amazing!!
Recently we have been reading War Horse and learning all about World War One. We have produced some great art work including poppy landscapes.
