This term in Science, we will be learning all about animals including humans. We will learn how different animals are grouped into mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians and will explore the characteristics of each group. To support this unit, Chester Zoo will be visiting our school to run a special outreach workshop which we are very excited about! 

Science Knowledge Mat

Science - exploring inventors and scientists

We have been learning about the Danish inventor Ole Kirk Kristiansen who invented Lego. We have great fun exploring the properties of the plastic bricks then inventing our own Lego designs.

Today we became meteorologists and made rain gauges to observe and record the rainfall in Leyland over time!

Safer Internet Day 2024

Mindfulness and Yoga session - we are very calm now

Spring PE - time for tennis!

PE days this term will be:

 Monday and Friday


Can I ask that all children come to school in their PE kits on those days and  - no jewellery please!



Autumn Term

Come and take a look at our learning in the Autumn Term. We learned all about Plants in Science, thinking about the different types of wild and garden plants that can be found in the UK as well as exploring deciduous and evergreen trees. The knowledge mat for the unit can be found below.

During the Autumn Term in RE we have been learning about the Christmas Story and why it is such good news! Here the children are exploring the moment that Angel Gabriel visited Mary.

During the Autumn term in DT, we will be developing our cutting and sewing skills through evaluating, designing and creating our own bunting and in History, we will be learning about how life has changed in Leyland through researching local transport, buildings, employment and education. We will be going out and about to see for ourselves what fascinating history Leyland has to offer! Everything you need to know to support your child's learning in these topics, can be found in the knowledge mats below.

Science - Plants

History - exploring changes in school life from the PAST to the PRESENT.

Developing DT skills: making templates and using these to create a final product. Next step...decorating!
