Red Deer Class

This half term Red Deer have enjoyed learning about The Ancient Greeks. The children have learnt all about the greek way of life, the invention of democracy, the ancient games and the ancient greek philosophers. The children also explored how the geography of Greece developed the ancient civilisation.
In Science the children have learnt about the planets, how the Earth orbits the Sun and how the moon orbits the Earth. The children enjoyed making solar systems out of fruit and working models to help explain the word orbit.
In DT the children learnt about different bridges. We made bridges out of card, spaghetti and eventually wood. The children developed their measuring, cutting and construction skills.
Next term we will be learning about the Victorians. Children will focus on looking at what life was like in the work houses, the industrial revolution and inventions from the time. To immerse ourselves into the world of the Victorians KS2 will be going on a trip to Gressingham Hall, ore information to follow. 
We will be looking at the art work of William Morris and drawing our own designs. 
In Science we will be focusing on Evolution and Inheritance, looking at the work of Charles Darwin.
