Term One Topic
Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.
This term our Topic is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.
We will be visiting Dover Castle, getting ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer's aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower.
Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side. And finally, meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls, they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down.
Science week home learning activity
To tie in with our wonderful Science week and our upcoming Sports day I have added an extra special home learning task for you to do if you wish. Please email the office any wonderful learning so that it can be added on to our School website. The activity sheet can be located below. Enjoy J
