Religious Education

Seahorse Class have been exploring their RE enquiry question 'How do Christians belong to their faith family?' The children enjoyed re-enacting a Christian wedding; they played their different parts brilliantly.


 We have finished reading "The Snail and the Whale", which the children thoroughly enjoyed. Keeping to our "Oceans" theme, we are currently reading "The Storm Whale". The children have invented a new game for Noi to play on the beach, when his dad goes fishing out to sea. 



In Maths, we have been learning how to measure length and height in cm and m. 


 In Science, we have been carrying lots of different experiments to find out how different materials change. The children have investigated the absorbency of different materials, how they change when they are heated or cooled and even tested the stretchiness of elastic bands!



In History, the children have been learning about RMS Titanic. The children learned how, why and when RMS Titanic was built and the many reasons why so many people lost their lives when the ship hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. The children even re-created the Third Class and First Class dining experiences!



 The children have been learning about weather and climate. They know about hot and cold places around the world and know how the seasons affect what we wear and what we do. 


Art and Design & Technology

 In Art, the children learned how to model clay and used their skills to re-create RMS Titanic. In Design & Technology, the children have been learning about food. The children made cabin biscuits and porridge, which were eaten by the Third Class diners on RMS Titanic. Most children didn't think the cabin biscuits were very tasty, but they did enjoy adding healthy fruit to their porridge - delicious!
