This project teaches children about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including a detailed exploration of the ecosystems and processes that shape them and the land around them.
We began the term with an RE Week exploring the question, ‘What is life like for Hindus in Britain today?’. The children enjoyed learning about Hindu beliefs and practices. They researched aspects of Hindu culture and presented their findings to the rest of the class, created rangoli patterns and produced colourful artwork inspired by the Holi festival. They also participated in some Indian dancing and impressed us with their sense of rhythm!
To introduce our new topic, we spent the day as explorers. We thought about skills which might be needed, including knot tying and climbing and also attempted to follow directions to find pictures.
Back in class, we talked about what it would be like to be a mountaineer. Not many of us liked the idea of crawling over crevices on a ladder!
Finally, we used our geographic skills to identify some of the world’s most famous mountains and discovered the different types of mountains there are.
Our science topic this term is electricity.
Tonbridge Class have been learning about electrical circuits. They demonstrated great team work and problem solving skills to create their own working electrical circuits.
Marble time smores!
Tonbridge Class worked hard to fill their marble jar and really enjoyed their treat!
