Term 5 and 6 Topic

Image result for eurekaFor Term 5 and 6 our new topic is called Eureka!

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 :)

The Rowan Tree

 

Our class is firmly part of the school forest and is named after the Rowan tree.

 

The Rowan tree is a small tree which is famous for growing and thriving in all weather, even through the toughest storms! In our class we will all be focusing on growing as individual trees, as part of the wider team ready to face any weather!

 

Jesus uses the example of a mustard seed, the tiniest of them all, to show that if we play our part and have just a little faith, we can grow into the greatest tree of them all!

Every other week  there may be extra things to do such as handwriting practice or project homework. These will be set on Friday and expected by the following Wednesday.
