Welcome to Venus Class

 

  Spring Term: 

We are well into the second half of the Spring term now and have delved deep into the Rainforests off the world leanring all about the animals that live there; the differences in climates; the deforestationg issues they face and so much more. There has been a lot of exciting activities happening in the classroom and some fantastic work has been produced. We are so looking forward to our visit to Twycross Zoo that will happen just before Easter break! 

 As well as having a classroom debate, followed by a class ballot and writing a balanced argument on deforestation, in groups we came up with placards about how we can help to save the rainforests. They turned out pretty fab - we could end up having out own march! 

 

Yr3/4 and Yr5/6 also spent a morning on a project: creating their own zoo! Miss Tysoe's and Mrs James/Mrs Simpson's class we're paired together and they had to compelete various tasks from choosing the animals they would have to a workshop timetable. The teamwork shown from all the children was fantastic and it was great to see all years working together.....

 The homework we recieved this term has been fantastic too....the children have come up with some fantastic ideas yet again: we had a rang of homework from monkey cupcakes to a deforastation animation. It has been great to share with the rest of the class and here are just a handful of the children's brilliant pieces of work...

 Autumn Term: 

A whole school term has flown by and here in Venus class we have enjoyed learning about both WW1 and WW2 - of course this was a special year to have WW1 as our topics as it was the 1 year anniversay since WW1 ended. 

We did many acitivities that focused on WW1, such as: understanding how WW1 began; looking at the BJA log book from WW1 and how it effected the school; researching life in the trenches and creating poems about rememberance. 

We also studied the famous Flanders Field poem and created a 'stained glass' effect when writing it up. Our class also visited the memorial and looked for names on the memorial that we had found in a log book too. We created some Art to pay tribute to these people. 

 

 

   
  In history we used a range of resources to learn about evacuess in WW2, we worked in groups to create our posters. 

 


  

 In art we have focused on our portrait skills and produced a piece of art work from, 'The Boy in the striped pyjamas.' This also crossed over with our learning in RE about Jews and in History understanding how Hitler treated Jews.
