Spring 2 News
As part of our 'Wonderful Wellesley' topic, KS1 have looked at Arthur Wellesley and his significance to Wellington. We found out about the Battle of Waterloo and looked at armour used by soldiers. We then visited the Museum of Somerset to make our own shields and learn about coats of arms. We looked at the features of a Castle and Jeff from the museum was blown away that we made links between dates of kings in the museum and Samuel Pepys and Guy Fawkes.

We have continued our topic ‘Let it burn,’ by visiting Wellington Fire Station and looking at how the role of a fire fighter has changed. We were really interested in all the lifesaving equipment that they carry for pets.
On November 11th we remembered all those who have lost their lives in wars by visiting Wellington Park and planting our own wooden poppies.
Finally, for vocabulary day, we all came dressed as different words. We had words such as extinct, swanky, measure and brave. We enjoyed sharing our words and writing definitions to go in our whole school book.

Our topic this term is ‘Let it Burn.’ We started off the new school year with burning our houses which we made in the summer holidays. Miss Walsh brought in a fire pit and we really enjoyed watching our houses go up in flames. We then went on to learn about the Great Fire of London and in particular Samuel Pepys. As part of our topic, we enjoyed having a fire safety talk by firefighters. We learnt about how to stay safe in our home and what to do in a fire.
In science, we are looking at animals and their habitats. We loved going to the basins on a habitat search. In class, we have been researching how animals are adapted to their habitats.
