History & Geography

What a Roarsome Assembly!

The Foxes entertained a huge audience this week with their amazing class assembly. They shared facts about dinosaurs, writing, music and art work. Mr Lennon would have been very proud of their recorder performance, it was very special. Thank you to our #incrediblecommunity for all your support and well done to all The Year 2 Foxes.

Busy Bees at Bolsover Castle

The Bees have been very busy this week exploring the beautiful Bolsover Castle. They had an amazing day out exploring a real castle whilst searching and identifying all the  features we have been learning about in our Topic ‘Knights and Castles’ this term.

Impacts of Tourism

First, the Jaguars looked at the positive and negative impacts of tourism on mountains. Then, they learnt about positive and negative economic, social and environmental impacts. Finally, they looked at each other’s and used STEM sentences to discuss whether they agreed or disagreed with the thoughts of other groups.

Making Mountains

Year 6 investigated how different mountains were made. They used books and triangular prisms to learn about how fault-block mountains are made; they used an elevated tray of sand and water to learn about plateau mountain formation; and they used different paper to investigate how fold mountains are formed. As a class we then used icing sugar and a piping bag to see how volcanic mountains are formed. We are physical geographers!
