Wingham Primary School

It’s all about the children

Term 4

What a busy term we have had!  So glad to have everyone back at school and enjoying learning with our class mates. We have continued learning all about dinosaurs and thinking about our topic question ‘Could a dinosaur live in Wingham?’  We went for a great walk around the village to see if there was food, space and opportunities for a dinosaur to live in Wingham.

In English we looked at the book ‘Katie and the Dinosaurs’ and we wrote some amazing recounts of the story.  We have also been looking at non fiction texts about dinosaurs and finding out things about them. 

In maths we finished our work on shapes and we looked around the school to see how many 3D shapes we could find. We have also been looking at fractions of shapes and numbers. 

We recently enjoyed a dinosaur workshop which was fantastic.  We looked at fossils, learnt a lot about dinosaurs and got to make a dinosaur out of clay.

In science we finished our learning about habitats and looked at Wingham as a habitat for a dinosaur.  We also planted a few more seeds and watched our amazing Amaryllis plants, that we planted in December,  grow and grow and grow.  We were so impressed with them we drew them and used pastels to capture their beauty. 

We got to finish our African instruments finally!! They were so much fun to make and we hope you are enjoying them at home.

In PSHE we have reflected on lockdown and made worry sticks.

During Book Week, we dressed up as our favourite book character and received a visit from the author of ‘Lottie and Dottie Grow Pumpkins’. During this workshop, we planted cress seeds and listened to the author read her story.

We continue to love our outdoor earning and we have made dinosaur skeletons from sticks, and dinosaurs using mud.  We have also looked at using potato peelers to whittle sticks and make patterns.
