To mark this we held a whole school assembly, on Monday, to share with the children how we can stay safe online. Throughout the week all classes took part in various activities and produced posters on how we can keep safe.

Through this topic we will be exploring the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. As well as expanding our mind by testing and trialling, building and moving. To start our exploration into forces we will be going to Blaise to explore what forces are needed to make the different play equipment move.

In Literacy, we will be looking at books that tie into our topic and producing writing around these, such robot stories and instruction.

Term 1

Hello and welcome to Term 1 of 2019!

I am really excited to start at Woodstock School. I’m sure this is the beginning of a great year in Juniper class.

We will be learning new stories, developing our writing and spelling in the Talk for Write sessions. Pupils will be developing their mathematics skills through the maths mastery lessons.

Added to this there will be Forest School sessions, gardening sessions and Judo workshops.

Our topic this term is the Heroes and Villains. During this topic we will think about:

  • Both famous and non famous heroes and villains
  • How does it feel to do good things and bad?
  • Which feels best and why?
  • Can you do a good deed that changes the world?
