Knowledge Organisers

In Orange Class, we will be learning about 'Earth and Space in Science; and 'Why do Christians think being a pilgrim is a good analogy for life itself?’ in RE. Please take a look at the knowledge organisers for the key information the children will be learning about in these subjects.

Spring Term 2 - 2024
Jolly Trip to Jimmy's Farm!

To reinforce all that we'd learnt in our Living Things and their Habitats unit in science, last half-term, we took a trip to Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife. We spent the day classifying animals and discussing the differences between their life cycles and the way each animals reproduces.

The Grand Tour of the Universe!

At the start of this half-term, we were visited by Mr Green, a retired physics teacher, who took us on a grand tour of the universe! We found out about stars, constellations, nebulas, and the moon - even getting to see the moon through 3D glasses! We learnt about how the force of gravity is far weaker on the moon, and got the giggles watching footage of astronauts trying to stay upright as they walked across the moon's surface.

Spring Term 1 - 2024
Cloning Chaos!

As part of our Science unit on 'Living Things and their Habitats', we learnt about how plants reproduce. We found out that some plants are able to reproduce through pollination, but others have to reproduce asexually and clone themselves. To understand this more, we propagated mint and are hoping to soon have clones of the parent plant!

Perfect Printing!

In our art lessons, we learnt how to create a reduction block print. We etched out a basic pattern into press print, and used yellow ink to create a set of four prints. Each week, we etched a new pattern into our existing press print and printed a new layer in red and blue ink. The process allowed us to create some beautiful and detailed sets of prints.

Autumn Term 2 - 2023
Separating Messy Mixtures

As part of our science learning on 'Properties and Changes of Materials, we were tasked with trying to separate a series of different mixtures of materials using different processes of separation. We used the processes of evaporation, filtration, magnetism and sieving - which turned out to be the messiest method of them all when separating flour and raisins!

Autumn Term 1 - 2023
Terrific Trip to Duxford!

As part of our history learning on World War 2, we took a trip to the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. This was a thoroughly exciting day as we were able to see many different WW2 aircrafts and other vehicles used during the war. We were even able to try on some military clothing, as well as wear a gas mask - which we decided was far too hot to wear for long!

Forest School Fun!

This term, Orange Class are lucky enough to be taking in part in Forest School. Our first session was amazing and we really enjoyed all these new activities that we hadn't done before. We are very excited about what the rest of the term holds!
