Congratulations to Thomas and Elsie! 

The Falcons have had a fantastic first half-term and have worked incredibly hard!


In English, the children have produced lots of brilliant work all based on the thrilling book The Iron Man. They have written newspaper articles, wrote letters to the Mayor and produced exciting poems! Most recently, the children have become producers and directors, working together to create a movie trailer for the book! Keep an eye out for our exciting productions coming soon!

In Maths, there has been lots of work on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction this half-term! The children have been using their knowledge and understanding of the column method to help them solve a variety of addition and subtraction problems. They have really had their perseverance and resilience put to the test as a few of the challenges have proven to be quite tricky! Here is one that really got Falcons thinking. Can you solve the problem using the numbers 0-9?





The children have also been keen investigators and researchers this half term! In Science, they have been learning all about magnets and forces. Like true scientists, they have been answering lots of interesting questions such as whether different materials effect how objects move and what objects are attracted to a magnet. Most recently, they have been exploring a range of magnetic games in an aim to think of their own scientific questions and create their own investigations.

In History the children have found out lots of interesting facts about life as an Anglo-Saxon! They have looked at where they came from and how they lived in Britain as well as finding out how the Anglo-Saxon people were ruled in comparison to people in Britain today. The children then began using secondary sources to find out all about Sutton Hoo and are now ready to put all their research into an exciting and informative leaflet! 



Well done Falcons for working so incredibly hard this half-term!
