Autumn Term 2020
It has been fantastic having the children back at St George’s and they have all settled in really well in difficult circumstances. The daily routine has been established and the children are enjoying being back and learning at school again.
This half term we have been learning about the Solar System and the children have really enjoyed researching the history of astronomy as well as researching facts about their chosen planets. From this they produced super writing that they can be really proud of.
In computing, the children have been learning Scratch programming and have programmed some fabulous games. They really enjoyed creating their characters and backgrounds and the new scheme of learning we have been following has extended the children’s learning and understanding of computing.
Next half term we shall be learning all about Paris, its culture, people and famous artists. The children will be learning about the French Impressionist painters as well as learning how to make crepes in DT. They will be exploring artistic techniques, such as the use of brushstrokes, to paint pictures influenced by Monet and Renoir.
Well done everyone for keeping up with your home learning and I am very much looking forward to the rest of the Autumn term!
