Welcome to Narnia Class
Hello and welcome to Narnia class! We are a fun, lively and imaginative group of 30 pupils, led by our teacher Mrs Pettifer-Saunders and wonderful teaching assistants, Mrs Cornhill and Mr Nearney. Our class is named after the literary land from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. In our class we are curious, creative and collaborative thinkers, and we love to have fun and explore new ways of learning!
What are we learning about this term?
This term, we are looking at the topic 'Let's Fly Away'. Throughout this topic the children will explore flight, world maps and how new inventions can shape the world.
We will be looking closely at what an invention is and how people in history have tried to fly in a number of ways before the first aeroplanes were invented. We shall be investigating who first invented the motorised aeroplane.
In art and design, we shall be drawing planes but specifically learning that lines have various thickness and some lines can be darker or lighter dependent on how hard we press.
In design and technology, we will be exploring how different materials have different properties (flexibility, waterproof etc.) so are useful for different things. We shall be understanding how a design should be well-planned so that it can be followed exactly to make the same model over and over again.
We will also be incorporating music and georgraphy into our lessons by using flight as the stimulus to our learning. This will involve understanding what a map is and using one. We will be exploring the continents and the five oceans.
We can't wait for our brains to grow bigger from all of the new information we shall be learning!
I like JONK time with different activities. I am looking forward to learning phonics and new letters. I love being with my friends in class when we do group work.
I like learning new things at school. I love writing and showing the teachers my writing. I enjoy playing with my friends outside. I want to learn new things everyday.
I like JONK time. My favourite lesson is maths. I enjoy counting upwards and learning more numbers.
