Amethyst

Welcome back to Spring Term 4, I hope you all had a fabulous Half term break and are refreshed and ready for the exciting term ahead…

This term is all about the events in history that have shaped Corsham since 1066!

The children will be finding out about the key historic events since 1066 and how these have changed Corsham; the buildings and the landscape.We will be looking at different sources of evidence to help us answer questions about the past. We will be encouraging the use of language to describe events in history and will use our english, maths and computing skills to to communicate these effectively.

We will be studying diaries and discussing what information they can tell us about the past and from our research, we will be writing our own.

In Maths, we will be focusing on percentages and algebra.

It is going to be very busy but exciting term for learning in Amethyst Class!

Mrs Harris will be teaching the children on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Symons on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Halfpenny will be in class every morning with the children.
