We went on a tour of 'Bristol in the Age of Sail' led by Captain Fry and First Mate Fisher, ably supported by Able Seaman Fletcher and Ship's Boy Porter. 


We can't believe we're over halfway through term 3 already! This year is flying by. What have we been up to? We asked some talkative children what they have enjoyed learning.


"We've been drawing maps, visiting historical sights in Bristol and learning about the ships that pirates sailed upon,"  said Josie and Eve, loudly. 


Khalid and Stan added, "This term, we have been decimals and fractions in maths and we hope this will help us pass our SATs!"


"We've really enjoyed RE," said Xander and Wyatt, "we've been learning about what happens when you die."


Throughout the rest of term 3, we will be learning about Bristol through time. The aim of this unit is to explore the historical roots of Bristol and how transport has shaped the city that we call home.


At the beginning of the term we will be learning about the 'Age Sail' and how Bristol was once a major port of Britain. We will be going on a history tour of the harbourside so that the children can identify some of the oldest buildings in Bristol. 


In week 4 we will be moving away from sails and we will be exploring the 'Age of Steam'. The children will investigate the time of Brunel and how his engineering pioneered huge changes around Bristol and the world. We will be taking a short trip to Bristol Temple Meads to explore the railway system and its impact on Bristol. 


Finally, in term 4, we will finish our unit by investigating the 'Age of Aviation'. More information will become available about this unit in term 4.
