Worcester Class April Blog
This half term we have started our new book 'The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe':
It is a story set in Narnia, a land of talking animals and mythical creatures that is ruled by the evil White Witch. Four English children are relocated to a large, old country house following a wartime evacuation. The youngest, Lucy, visits Narnia three times via the magic of a wardrobe in a spare room. Lucy's three siblings are with her on her third visit to Narnia.
In Narnia, the siblings seem fit to fulfill an old prophecy and find themselves adventuring to save Narnia and their own lives. The lion Aslan gives his life to save one of the children; he later rises from the dead, vanquishes the White Witch, and crowns the children Kings and Queens of Narnia.
In Guided Reading, we have been focusing on using our inference skills to find out about the characters in the story.
In Science, we learned about what thermal insulators are. We carried out an investigation on how quickly an ice cube melts with or without a ‘jacket’ on. We observed the changes and recorded our findings.
In Geography we explored the changes in marine environments with a focus on overfishing and the effects on human activities.
In PESHR, we focused on the benefits of regular dental check-ups.
In RE, we discussed the five pillars of Islam and why they are important for Muslims.
