3 Happily Ever After

In Term 3 and 4 we learn all about the magic of fairy tales and traditional stories.

The children design and make houses for the poor, homeless three little pigs and then test them for wind resistance!  We also learn how to weave and we use these new skills to make a patchwork quilt for a fairytale character.  We investigate the properties of different materials to find out which one would protect a fairytale character in water.


We visit Leeds Castle to learn about life living in a castle.  We will be learning a Russian fairytale called ‘The Swan Princess’ and acting it out at the castle.

This term we have a special ‘Space Science’ week. Year 1 are going to have fun making astronaut costumes and rockets for their toys.  After voyaging into space we will be investigating how craters are made.
