Through Inspired Learning We Achieve Our Dreams

Banyan Class

 

Have a look at what we are learning this half term...

Muscle tutorials

In Science, we learnt all about different muscles in our bodies and how certain muscles work in pairs. Then, we created a tutorial using the Book Creator App on the iPads to explain all about how muscles work! Here are some of the finished videos...

Farmers' Market 

We have had such a busy week preparing for the Farmers' Market. Thank you to everyone who came to support us by buying our 'grow your own' herb jars! We have learnt so many skills during our 'Enterprise Week' and there are definitely some budding entrepreneurs among us.  Firstly, we did some fantastic sewing using 3 different stitches to produce our seed pouches; we were very proud of the finished product. Then, we had to concentrate on marketing our product by creating a company name, logo and slogan. Following this, we held some very important pricing discussions where we came up with our pricing strategy and calculated our expected profit. Next, we created some advertising posters and finally we filled, labelled and assembled our jars ready to sell! Here are some photos of us hard at work...

If you were unable to attend the expectations meeting, the slides are here:

Knowledge Organiser

This year, we will be using Knowledge Organisers to support us to learn key facts linked to our themes. During the Autumn term we will be conducting an enquiry to answer the question, 'How did people from the past shape the world we know today?' During this term, we will be discovering what life what like during three periods of history: the Stone Age, the Ancient Greek and the Roman periods. With the Knowledge Organiser, the whole family can join in with the learning of some key dates, facts and vocabulary linked to these periods of history!
