Upper Key Stage 2 Autumn Term Blog
It has been another busy half term in Class 8. Our ‘Tell a Tale’ topic has been the perfect opportunity to learn about many traditional tales and we have enjoyed listening to the stories ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We also had lots of fun dressing up and acting out. In Numeracy, we have worked very hard and have been learning about measuring. In Science, to support our topic on Forces, we explored various objects and have changed their shape by bending, squashing and stretching them. In Geography, we have been learning about Antarctica and cold climates. Snow could not have fallen at a better time! We have experienced the freezing cold and made some snowballs. We have had a fantastic time sledging and playing together in the snow! Our Creativity week has been the perfect end to the half term. We have learnt lots of interesting facts about Chinese New Year and have immersed ourselves in the Chinese culture! We had a brilliant time taking part in all the activities and we all celebrated with Chinese food and gave each other a fortune cookie. We wish you a lovely half term holiday from all the staff in Class 8.
Class 9 - In creativity week, we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We had lots of fun taking part in different activities.

We have been practising our targets this half term and most of us have achieved our IEP targets. We have been learning about Traditional Stories in English. We have written our own story based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
Class 10 -
This week has been a lot of fun working on Creativity Week. We have had lots of different teachers in our class each one doing a different activity. The theme was Chinese New Year. We have been working on a poem by Sara Coleridge in class called The Months of the Year! Some of us are trying to learn to say the whole poem by ourselves from memory. We have all been enjoying our maths work. We have been learning a lot about shape and money as well as our main topic which has been Data Handling. Some of our trips have had to be cancelled because of the weather but we have enjoyed a lovely visit to Hollingworth Lake Visitors Centre and Manchester Cathedral!
