Welcome to Miss Mulligan's Class
Mr Saunders, Miss Mulligan & Mrs Rose
To begin our school year, we are reading Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Geography too will be our focus for topic. Alongside lots of geography, We are looking at the religions of Islam and Hinduism and what it means to have faith. In Art we will be developing skills in still life and observational drawing in art.
James and the Giant Peach has been great so far, we laugh a lot at the way Roald Dahl describes the characters - especially the Aunts! We've already created our own evil
character and then wrote a character introduction in the style of Roald Dahl. We will be creating a senses poem putting ourselves in James' shoes when he first discovered the giant peach. When we are finished Miss Mulligan will upload them on our class page!
We have started our maths really focusing on place value and base ten. We have really got stuck in, with some tricky concepts, lots of mental math and times tables.
We have been comparing numbers and recapping on greater than and less than symbols.
Our science for the autumn term is going to explore the amazing life cycles and adaptations that humans, plants and habitats make to survive. By the end of the topic we will be able to classify animals, explain their life cycle, how they survive and understand the involvement of their genetics. It's going to a very interesting investigation and we love animals.
