Autumn Term

Our English work over the first half term was based on the author Roald Dahl and his amazing books. We started by learning all about Roald Dahl’s life (from childhood to the time of his death) and then went on to read and carry out work based on ‘The Enormous Crocodile’, ‘The Twits’ and ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’.  To support the children’s learning we went on an exciting visit to the Buckinghamshire County Museum in Aylesbury. Here the children visited the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery and took part in a BFG inspired craft workshop.  Within the gallery, which is full of hands on exhibits inspired by Roald Dahl’s life and stories, the children investigated minibeasts inside the Giant Peach, explored sound with the BFG, crawled along Fantastic Mr Fox’s tunnel and saw the Twit’s upside-down room. They then took part in a craft workshop where they decorated their own BFG dream bottles to take home.




In our History lessons this term the children learnt about how life changed throughout The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age.  As part of this topic we had a visit from The Hobgoblin Theatre Company who, through the use of replica artefacts and costume, taught us about what life was like throughout these periods.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the show and the workshop that followed.




In November the children visited our local Waitrose store to carry out research to find out which countries different fruit and vegetables come from.  This linked very well to our Geography topic where we had been learning about different countries and oceans and how (and why) temperatures differ around the world.

At the end of term the children in Year 3 and 4 worked extremely hard to learn lines, songs and actions for our Christmas show. For this we learnt all about te Christmas story and the children put on an excellent show!
