Class 7 - Mr Tudor

Autumn Term - Maafa

What a term! We have been so busy in Class 7!  We have had trips to Newcastle, visits to church, visitors in school to teach us new things and have learned so much!  We have researched and written about the African diaspora.  In our English work, we have taken our imaginations for a wander and created whole new worlds and days which were incredible!  We have revisited our Maths skills and worked with number and fractions.  In our science learning, we have discovered what is in blood and even made our own.  We have invited our parents in and shown them how hard we work in school.  As part of our DT learning, we have baked bread from scratch and created our own hummus.  We then had to taste-test our foods - which were delicious!  We have really enjoyed learning our lines and songs for our Christmas performance, it was a hit with everyone.  Have a fantastic Christmas and we will see you in the New Year.  Class 7.  

Spring Term - Frozen Kingdoms

We started this term by learning about our new topic 'Frozen Kingdoms', during which the children especially enjoyed ice-skating. We have also been learning about climate change and its impact on the world. The majority of our Geography learning has focused on the Arctic and the Antarctic. As part of our Art topic, we studied the Inuit People where we developed our stencilling and printing skills. In Science, we have been learning about classification and creating both digital and paper classification trees. We have also strengthened our understanding of animal groups and characteristics. In History, we have studied the RMS Titanic and the exploration experiences of Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton. We have been swimming this term, with more children completing their 25 metres! Well done! We have completed our Outdoor Learning, which was lots of fun, and we had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day. In writing, we have developed our skills and completed pieces on persuasive letters, narrative and short narratives.
