Our first topic for the autumn term is..


Our topic will end with an electricity workshop, where will be hands on making circuits, learning and understanding symbols and making sure we are always safe with electricity.

We will be covering the following National Curriculum objectives:

associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit

compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches

use recognized symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram


For our English topic, we will be reading the beautiful book by Helen Ward, Varmints.

This will be our class read for the beginning of term.

If you enjoy the book, there is another in the series called 'Mission Gone Wild'.
