We will be looking at different Victorian inventors and how their inventions have changed the course of history. The different inventors we will be looking at are: Marie Curie (the person who discovered radium), George Stephenson (the inventor of the stem engine), Thomas Edison (the inventor or the lightbulb) Isambard Kingdom Brunel (the inventor of the steamship) and Alexander Bell (the inventor of the telephone.)


We are also going to be reading 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl in class. This is a really exciting book and the children are already really looking forward to it. If you have a copy of this book please bring it in (named!) so that we can all share the book as we are reading :)

Friday 23rd September - International Day of Languages

On Friday 23rd September we celebrated International Day of Languages. Birch class was representing Germany. We came to school wearing the colours of the German Flag and spent the day immersing ourselves in the language and culture of this fascinating country. We learnt about the differences between German and English school days, tasted a German breakfast and made a placemat using the German words we have learnt, we made a schultute and set up shops using Euros where we had to use our recently practised adding and subtracting skills. A wonderful day of learning was had by all!
