We are Sherwood Superstars!
For information regarding the day to day running of Sherwood class, please see the welcome letter, class timetable and long term plan below.
I hope you've all had a magical Christmas and a wonderful New Year spending precious time with your families. We have missed you all so much and can't wait to welcome you back and hear all about the festive fun you've been having. I hope you are all looking forward to getting stuck into our exciting new topic...
This half term our new topic will be...
TOWERS, TUNNELS AND TURRETS!
Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!
This term, we will "virtually" visit some real castles to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two! We’ll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the stories of Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and create models inspired by them. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games. We also have an exciting art project planned all about DRAGONS!
Help your child prepare for their project
Towers, tunnels and turrets are everywhere! Why not visit a skyscraper, big wheel or tower? Look at the materials the structure is made of to decide why the materials were chosen. You could also use blocks or stones to create tall towers. How high can you go? Alternatively, play Jenga together and see if you can work out how to make the tower stay strong, even when you have removed some of the blocks! You can find our topic knowledge organiser below with all of the key information your child will know by the end of the topic.
