Term 2

Week Beginning 22nd November


We have continued to learn about The Three Little Pigs and have looked at the houses they have built.  We have set a DT challenge on designing a house that is strong and can withstand an earthquake!  In preparation for this we have found different ways of joining card! 


We would welcome any card or plastic recycling to be brought in ready for building our houses next week.


We have also been working on our nativity songs and dances! Do check them out :


Please remember to bring in costumes!  Thank you

Week Beginning 8th November


We have loved learning about the 3 Little Pigs and memorising our own version of the story using Talk 4 Writing.  We have a story map and actions for the whole story.  Do ask for the children to perform it!  We have then started writing the story.  We also invented ways to trap the wolf and make traps using construction materials.


In DT we have been set the challenge to design and make house for the 3 Little Pigs that can survive an Earthquake. We  explored different houses from around the world then tested 3 different structures in an 'earthquake' and suggested ways to strengthen them. 


Don't forget to wear odd socks on Monday 14th for anti- bullying week!

Have a good weekend
