Falcons Class

Autumn Term 2

It has been another busy term for the Falcons and they have achieved such a lot in a short period of time. 

The focus this half term was Fair Trade. The children, through enquiry-based learning, found out about trading between countries, especially between the UK and China and how difficult it was for producers in other countries getting a fair price for their products.

There were opportunities for cross-curricular work with the children producing amazing leaflets about different Fair-Trade products.

Alongside all of these, the children have also studied Micro-organisms, studied Islam and Judaism in RE and made Fair Trade cookies in DT.  The cookies went down particularly well!
Falcons were also involved in making poppies for the Veterans and some of them really enjoyed the Christmas dinner!

Autumn Term 1

To start our new academic year, the first topic the children studied was World War 1. This involved the children focusing on the Western Front, The Trenches, and the Role of Women in the war.  The discussions the children had were very thoughtful and the children seemed to have learnt a lot from it.

In Literacy, we focused most of our work around describing a scene taken from World War 1 and imagining what life was like for a soldier in the trenches.  The children wrote some fabulous pieces of writing on describing the setting and produced some very touching diary entries from a soldier. They were particularly taken with the rats and the lice in the Trenches!  This was apparent in the diary writing they produced.

The main focus of maths this half term was number and place value.  The children have risen to the challenge of their multiplication table challenges, with some of them now completing 120 questions in less than three minutes!

Alongside all of these, the children have also studied Light in Science, studied Islam in RE and looked at silhouettes in Art.

On 12th – 14th September, Year 6 pupils from William Stukeley and Deeping St. Nicholas spent a fabulous few days at PGL in Caythorpe, Grantham. The children were an absolute credit to the Federation, and they all had the most wonderful time!
