Mr Chaplin's Class
Summer is Here!
Well where has the year gone? A new term and a new topic are here. This term the children will be focusing on the Anglo-Saxons. Over the next couple of months the children will be using the research skills they have been developing though the year to find out about the Anglo-Saxons and use their findings to create a documentary. Keep checking back to see how the class have got on.
In the meantime use the web links below to find out more about the Anglo-Saxons.
In literacy we have focused on instructional texts. As part of our work the children have written texts that tell the reader how to escape from Pompeii as Mt. Vesuvius erupted nearly 2000 years ago.
The children have developed their ideas using peer critique and drafting to ensure their writing is the best they can achieve. Have a look below to see the children's final drafts.
In history the children were challenged to create information boards to tell a visiting VIP about the main landmarks in Pompeii. Look at the pictures below to see how the children did.
The children will be using the links below to find out more about the Roman city of Pompeii. If there is time it would be great for them to have an extended look at home!
We hope you have had a good Christmas break!
This term we will be focusing on volcanoes and earthquakes in our topic work, whilst also spending some time studying the ancient city of Pompeii.
Come back soon to see what we have been up to...
The children in our class are working hard in maths and all making good progress towards their individual end of year targets.
Your children can always do extra maths work at home on a computer or tablet using www.Sumdog.com. Feel free to phone me at school to ask for information about this.
As part of our work studying the local area and its RAF history, we studied the weather over a 4 week period to see why the area would make a good location for a WW2 RAF base.
This week the children searched the woods next to school in search of clues that showed there used to be an RAF base located in the area. Watch the video to see what the Time Team found.
Hello and welcome to our class page, we hope you have had an enjoyable summer and are all set for the new school year.
This term we will be working on the topic 'Ourselves'. As part of this topic we will be finding out how to live a healthy lifestyle and discovering why Lincolnshire is know as 'Bomber County'.
Keep checking this space over the coming weeks to find out more about the work we are doing. In the meantime, use the links below to find out more about Bomber County.
