The Beginning of the Year

We spent the first few weeks getting to know each other and then moved forward into the heart of the Autumn term.

 

Over the following weeks we went through different topics and subject areas linked to our study of time, emphasising the differences between the Rich and Poor during Tudor Times.

 

Our Learning Journey with the Tudors

As we journeyed through our topic, we spent time looking at the clothes worn by people during the Tudor period.  We identified the differences between the clothes of the Rich and Poor during this period of British history and examples of our work are at the bottom of this topic section.

 

We worked our way through our drawing project in Art quickly and produced amazing work based on Tudor clothing which was used to create part of our classroom display.  Take a look below, can you tell the difference between the clothing of the rich and the poor during Tudor times?

While studying the Tudors we also continued progressing in other areas of work and really loved working on the ABBA song 'Mamma Mia', focusing on the patterns played throughout the song with the help of Mrs Llewellyn.  

 

How do you think we sound?

Our Patterns

As we continued our work through the Tudor Times - Rich vs Poor, we compared houses and jobs as well as looking at explorers and punishments.  It was a very busy term and below are examples of our work:

The Spring Term - The Winter Olympics

What an interesting topic this has the potential to be!  We have planned out as a class the types of things we would like to produce based on this topic, we won't be able to do them all but we will try our best!  We have taken the new core purposes of the forthcoming curriculum to help us plan our activities, thinking about how the different areas of learning can help us be:

  • ethical and informed.
  • ambitious and capable.
  • enterprising and creative.
  • healthy and confident.

 

Take a look at our plans, examples of our work will soon follow!

The Digital World at Waunfawr Primary

At Waunfawr we have invested in digital sources to allow us to safely use Internet sources to be both creative and academic.  By using the links below we can take a shortcut to this interactive world:

 

                                                   

Our Social Media Updates

We now have our own class twitter page @MapleWaups and this will be regularly updated, along with some updates on our school Facebook account and Twitter account (@waunfawrps).  Our class are also testing the use of ClassDojo class stories which the pupils can independently update and share some of their best and favourite pieces of work with you, links are available for you to be able to see what we get up to in class a lot more often.

 

However, here are examples of our recent updates:
