Spring 1, 2024. Nook class have had a lovely half term. Although it’s only been 5 weeks we have completed lots of wonderful work and made a great start on our SPAG and comprehension focus for our SATS. We have shown great resilience this half term when completing our assessments and maintained positive attitudes too. In Science we have been really enjoying our work on forces. We looked at how parachute designs were effective and tested our own to see the effect of air resistance and gravity! In Geography we have been studying earthquakes, we have been exploring how they are created (tectonic plates), how they are measured (seismographs) and how it would feel to live in an earthquake zone. As such, we experimented with our own tectonic plates, made our own seismographs and carried out our own earthquake drills! In RE we continued with our look at Sikhism, and have moved further forward in answering our enquiry question, “Are Sikh stories still relevant today?”, do the morals still apply for modern Sikhs? In PE we have developed our skills in Tennis and Badminton and enjoyed learning new names of certain moves too! We are all looking forward to more in Spring 2!

What’s coming up in Spring 1, 2024?
