Juniper Class

Welcome to Juniper Class
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome back to the spring term, this term Juniper class are embarking on a new adventure-Our new topic is Wild Earth.
 
Our learning adventure has started with an eruption....from a volcano in our classroom! We will explore how the earth creates tremors and volcanos, investigate different rock types and research into the life of those in the Mediterranean compared to our own lives here. 
 
 In maths children have been focusing on multiplication and division this term, we are also starting statistics looking at ways to represent data in the form of tally charts and pictograms. We are having our flying starts every morning and times tables practice time but please can those at home practice with us so we can really improve this skill.
 
In English the children are starting their writing adventure with a newspaper article about the Volcanic eruption in Pompeii, we are linking this to our history topic and have been looking at images and small clips about what happened in Pompeii in 79AD.
 
We are very lucky to this term have a wonderful workshop from the Freshwater theatre company to visit our school on Wednesday 23rd January, this experience will give children the opportunity to take part in a range of activities learning about volcanos and earthquakes in an interactive way.
