Term 1

Brilliant Bristol

Term 1 begins with a wonderful introduction to our famous city, Bristol. In this term, we enjoy looking into the vibrant culture and history of Bristol. Early on we go on a magnificent trip to the SS Great Britain and enjoy a trip around the Brunel Museum. As part of this amazing topic, we:

  • learn all about our city of Bristol, what makes it special and where it is in the country
  • Read the myth of the Bristol giants, Gorom and Ghyston
  • research and create an information leaflet all about the sights of Bristol
  • produce sketches of the magnificent Clifton Suspension Bridge
  • explore Brunel's SS Great Britain.



We are incredibly lucky to have the wonderful opportunity of visiting the Bristol Gymnastics Centre once a week this term. Here, we have the opportunity to improve our gymnastic skills using equipment like: the beam, spring board and foam pit.

 Term 2

Spies & Santa's on Strike!

In term 2 we started off by dressing up as spies for our special wow day. We began the day by
investigating a crime scene and explored lots of gadgets. This term we focussed on Inspector
Gadget and Jane Blond in our English lessons.
At Christmas we performed Santa's on Strike to our family members and the rest of the school.
It was amazing to show off our acting and singing skills.

Term 3 - Egyptians and STEM week

Term 3 began with an amazing STEM week. We investigated bridges

using spaghetti. We also designed and created our own stomp

rockets which were tested against children from the rest of the school

We kicked off our Egyptians topic by visiting the Bristol Museum and

learning about Ancient Egyptian life by the river Nile. We innovated 

'The Magic Paintbrush' into our own Egyptian stories, in which we

created our characters, settings and plots. In maths, we progressed

our addition and subtractions skills and written methods for these.


Term 4 - Robots

What a great time we have had with this topic. We spent a whole

week designing, investigating and making robots to create a

trail around the school for other children to follow. Our book

this term was 'The Iron Man' which we really enjoyed writing

a setting description and a book review based on this.



Terms 5 and 6 - Romans

Wow! What fun we have had learning all about Romans. What

a way to end the year! We had a great time on our immersion

day making shields, exploring the Roman timeline and taking

part in an artefact hunt. We continued our work on blending

using the colour wheel as a backdrop for our fantastic

colosseum art.

In Term 6, we went on a trip to the Roman baths. The children

took part in a self-guided tour, in which they loved listening

to all of the facts electronically.
