Autumn 2 Review

Our theme for this term has been Protect the Planet/ Pollution Solution

As Geographers, we have explored how humans affect the environment and have learnt how we can protect the environment. During these lessons we have explored issues around: pollution, climate change, littering and deforestation. We had the opportunity to litter pick and carry out a speed watch with our PCSOs. This was a great experience! Our Mother Earth is sacred and we need to take care of the environment so we have produced letters to persuade people to help save the planet.

Autumn 2 - 02

In our English lessons, we have been learning to use formal language and have produced letters of complaint to our local residents to make them realise that our own area is experiencing a lot of problems.

In Maths we have a deeper understanding and can confidently use formal written methods for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. We have solved real life problems and puzzles.  

This term we’ve had a great time meeting refugees and learning about their journeys. We have made some strong connections and we are looking forward to working with them again. Some of our Year 6 pupils went to Keighley College to experience the sensory room.

As part of our Brighter Futures Week, some of us visited Dementia Friendly, Sangat Centre, worked with the PCSOs and participated in a range of activities.  Thank you to all the welcoming warm smiles from the community and organisations.

Autumn 1 Review

In our Geography lessons, we analysed maps of Keighley and Haworth. We have learnt to use ordnance survey symbols and have become confident in working out 6 future grid references. We walked around the local area and identified key historical places and discussed how some places have changed over time.

We visited Haworth and enjoyed exploring the moors. We walked in the shoes of the Bronte sisters. The children enjoyed walking down Haworth main street.

As historians, we found out some interesting information about Captain Sir Tom Moore, Bronte Sisters and Sir Andrew Carnegie. A big thank you to these amazing people for bringing about change and making Keighley a better place.

In English, we read the text Railway Children and produced our own version of the classic novel. We enjoyed reading the book and compared life in different places and times. We enjoyed reading ‘From a Railway Carriage by R.L Stevenson’ and it was great to perform the poem and write own poems. For National Poetry day, we read poems based on the theme refuge. We discussed what a refuge is and what a refugee is. It was great to see children perform the poem and recite the poems off by heart.
