There might be times during the year when you have a question or query: face to face drop in sessions would normally be available on Wednesdays with Miss Davis straight after school but due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are currently unable to offer this. Messages can be left with the adult on the door at the start and end of each day. Otherwise, please use Google Classroom or your child’s planner. If the matter is urgent, please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time for a phone conversation.

Topaz class have PE on Mondays and Fridays, children need to wear their PE kit to school on both of these days.  

Take a look at our work, displays and sometimes us. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.

 

Term 1 – Savage Stone Age

We’ve had a brilliant first term in Topaz class and we’ve really enjoyed our topic. In our history lessons we found out about what life was like in the Stone Age and learnt about chronology and different sources of evidence. We also had a fantastic time, designing and making our own mini Stone Age houses in our DT lessons. Also in Science, we investigated different types of rocks and learnt about fossils.

In our Computing lessons this term we have been thinking about online safety and have used the laptops to research different types of online communication. We also discussed how to keep safe when using the internet.

Our RE unit this term focused on how God is represented among different religions and we made links between different faiths and our own beliefs.

We finished the term with Arts Week! Blue Area’s focus painting was Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ and in Topaz Class we used this painting as inspiration for our own art. Please have a look at some photos from across the term. We can’t wait to see what the next topic will be!
