Houses and Homes
For the first half of the Autumn Term, our creative curriculum topic was 'Houses and Homes'. As part of this topic, we focused on castles. We learnt all about Lulworth Castle and the different parts of a castle including: turret, drawbridge, portcullis, arrow slits, battlement and the keep. We then designed and created our own castles.
Old Toy New Toy
In the second half of the Autumn Term, our creative curriculum topic was 'Old Toy, New Toy'. We learnt about toys from the past and how they are similar and different to toys today. We created our own 'Jumping Jack' toys. Our favourite part was adding the finishing touches on to our Jumping Jack!!
Literacy - 3 Little Pigs
This term we have been focusing on traditional stories. We began by reading the 3 Little Pigs Story. We learnt the story off by heart using a story map. We then changed the story map by creating our own characters and using different ways to build the house, such as candy floss or leaves. We finally wrote our own versions of the story.
