Curwen Primary School


Summer 1

This term has been absolutely amazing and jam packed!! In topic we have been learning about Schools in the Past. We looked at how children learnt in schools during the Victorian times. We transformed our classroom into a Victorian classroom and we used chalk and chalkboards to write with. It was not easy!! We carried out research, which showed us how hard school was during the Victorian times and used our core skills. We used resilience, communication and teamwork. We definitely appreciate our school life at Curwen Primary!


This term we had some special visitors at Curwen. The arrival of the ducklings had everybody excited and what an experience we had. We observed them as eggs and watched them hatch, grow and swim. We learnt about the life cycle of a duckling and created fact files about the different stages of their lives.


In maths we have been learning about measure. We learnt how to use a ruler to measure accurately and compared lengths. We discussed the importance of it in real life. We need to measure when building, buying clothes, cooking and many other reasons! We compared different measures and ordered objects according to their sizes. We also organised our friends in height order which was a challenge as some of us are very similar in height!
