Autumn Term Review

Autumn Term 2010 

Topic: Scarborough Castle

Children: 30


Teacher: Hangin' in there

Teaching Assistant: Getting used to her new Zimmer

What a term it has been!
From our visit to Scarborough Castle to our Nativity play we have been very busy!

Everyone has enjoyed our topic of Scarborough Castle this term. We have created many excellent pieces of work across all the subjects.

In English, we have written guide books, poems, instructions and stories. In our speaking and listening we have planned guided tours around Scarborough Castle and acted out new scenes from one of our books - 'The Knight who was Afraid of the Dark'. Our reading has really improved through our phonics work (both inside and out), our guided reading and all the other opportunities we have had to sharpen our skills.

Our Lego Instructions!


Our salesmen can sell you tickets for anything!

In Maths we have looked at place value, addition and subtraction, 2D shapes, symmetry, length, time and many other topics. We look forward (!) to getting our maths homework books in January.


Number ordering!



Measuring Length!



Some Tough Calculations!



Smelly Shoe Capacity!

Our topic has covered so much this term. We have looked at timelines, castle features, catapult making, missile experiments, castle building, attack plans, ICT research and designing, Romans, materials, waterproof roof experiments, maps and plans, mosaics, window experiments and much more! Not forgetting Mrs. Shortle's Monday Art lessons.



Messy Art!


Castle Building!


Our Own Castle Ideas!


Catapult Making!



Waterproof Roof Experiment!

In our RE we have been thinking about God the Creator. We have made our own creation collages and invented our own animals!



Creation Creations!

Now we are nearly at the end of our term. All that remains is the Nativity performances, carol service, Christmas dinner and Christmas party. Not much then...

Our new topic for January is top secret! But we think it will be fantastic!
