Autumn 2020

Autumn 1

Marvellous Me!

 

 During Autumn 1, Robins and Wrens celebrated being MARVELLOUS! 

All during that half term, Wimborne First school was celebrating how marvellous everyone is. As we settled into being in a new class and a new school, we looked at how we are all UNIQUE!

To start our topic off, we looked at personal, social, health and emotional aspects of learning. We also looked at what makes us similar and what makes us different to our peers. We considered our role within the school community, both individually and as part of our class and year group. We looked at celebrating our achievements and those of others and thought about how that made us feel.

Along with this, the children became scientists, and conducted a range of different investigations such as the Curly Wurly Challenge (see Our Learning Journey). We got creative by using a range of media within our Creative Arts lessons to complete a project all about how Marvellous we are.

 

WE CERTAINLY FOUND OUT HOW MARVELLOUS WE ALL ARE!

Autumn 2

Happy Habitats!

 

During Autumn 2, Robins and Wrens will turn into biologists and learn all about animal habitats through our Happy Habitats topic.

We will start by becoming palaeontologists for the day and will enjoy excavating fossils, making our very own ammonites using salt dough, and create our own dinosaur eggs out of papier-mâché.

This topic will also provide us with lots of opportunities to run investigations. We will conduct a fair test to find the best way of melting ice to release some dinosaurs from their frozen eggs and will explore insect habitats using magnifying glasses and bug viewers.

The children will finally learn about food chains and how to distinguish between whether something is; alive, has once been alive or has never been alive.

 

 

WE CAN'T WAIT TO BECOME SUPER SCIENTISTS!
