We will be publishing what we are learning during each term throughout the year. Watch this space to see what is happening in Term 5 in and out of the classroom and for useful information for Peach and Pear classes.
So far in Term 5… Peach and Pear class pupils have enjoyed their pirate-themed day where they learnt how to become real swashbuckling pirates! They compared their lifestyle in Banbury to that of a life on the sea. Alongside this, they have discussed whether pirates make good choices and are good role models. The children have been studying and drawing maps, then practising to follow instructions. In art, pupils have been studying different artists and art techniques, using these skills to recreate some famous works of art. Earlier in the term children also shared their experiences of Eid with peers, generating a wonderful discussion of how we are all different.
Learning about different materials
The children in Reception have been working hard to learn about different materials, thinking about which ones float or sink. They then used this knowledge to create their own pirate ships which they tested in water. The children were really engaged in the process and were able to explain how they created their ship and ways to improve it too.
