Welcome back after half term! I hope you all had a lovely week off and had lots of fun. Our topic this half term is 'How to catch a...' When we came back to school, we discovered that there had been rather a mysterious incident. We discovered that someone or something has been in the school grounds and caused some damage over half term! Mrs Morris and Mr Rowlands the caretaker were keen to find out who or what had caused the damage so we were tasked with investigating the clues. We will update you with more information as we begin to solve the mystery.
After some investigation, we have discovered the culprit, it was a .... woolly mammoth. We have decided that we need to try and catch the woolly mammoth as we don't want it to come back and cause further damage so we have designed some traps and written some instructions on how to catch a woolly mammoth. In order to improve our traps, we decided to find out more about the woolly mammoth and have carried out some research about these mysterious creatures. We will also be starting to find out what life was like for stone age man as part of our stone age topic.

Our first topic this half term will be 'Up with a Bang!' We will be learning about volcanoes and earthquakes. The focus of our topic is geography and we will be learning about what volcanoes and earthquakes are, how they are made, what they do and the impact they have on people's lives. We will be looking at some famous volcanoes and using our map work skills to locate them using maps and Google Earth. In Science we will be looking at different types of forces including gravity, friction, air resistance and buoyancy as well as magnets.
