WELCOME TO BRIDGE FARM PRIMARY SCHOOL

Miss Caunter

Term 2

This term we have been focusing on ‘What was life like for Victorian Children?” We have spent this term discovering and learning all about the Victorians and we have had a lot of fun doing so. In our History lessons we have been lucky enough to explore different Victorian artefacts and had lots of fun trying to work out what they were, we couldn’t believe the differences and similarities that we discovered between now and then.

 

In our English lessons we have enjoyed reading a range of different texts. We started the term off by reading the story ‘Old Bear’ we then had a go at changing the story and created lots of new exciting characters and we thought about different ways in which our new character could be rescued from the attic just like in the story Old Bear. We have also had a go at writing some information texts about the Victorians, we then recorded what we found out in the style of Horrible Histories!

 

During our Maths lessons we have been working on adding and subtracting to 10, we have looked at a range of methods in which we can solve different problems. We had to be real Persevering penguins with some of our challenges but we felt so proud when we managed to solve them.  

 

In our Art sessions we have loved creating some of our own Victorian pottery. We enjoyed listening to the story behind the Willow plates and then had a go at creating our own. Our next step will be making our own clay vases.

 

We have enjoyed exploring the different countries in the UK and had lots of fun learning about our capital city.

Term 1

Welcome to 1BC!

 

This term we have been focusing on ‘ourselves’. In our science lessons we have enjoyed learning about the different body parts, the 5 senses and carrying out interesting investigations!

 

We enjoyed reading the story ‘what makes me a me’ and we thought about what makes us different to others. We then wrote a letter to Miss Caunter and Mrs Hughes telling them all about ourselves. Recently we have read the story ‘Peace at Last’ and even had a go at writing our own version with new characters. We had to think about how to describe them and what might keep them awake!

 

We have been exploring number during our Maths sessions and have been great at ordering numbers, representing numbers using different resources and have been using new language ‘greater than’ ‘less than’ and equal to.

 

In our Art sessions we had a go at using different materials to be able to create collage self-portraits and we really enjoyed it!
