Curwen Primary School


Autumn 1

Design Technology

In DT we explored food and different tools. We explored ways we can use tools. We used knives, graters, juicers, spoons and peelers. We really enjoyed using the tools safely to make a fruit salad. At the end of the lesson, we got to enjoy our fruit salad. We also looked at healthy eating and how to stay fit by exercising.



In Literacy we have been looking at the author Julia Donaldson. The books we read were The Gruffalo, Tiddler, Room on The Broom, Snail and The Whale and Superworm. The reading skills we covered were sequencing, describing characters, comparing, inferring and predicting what happens next in the stories. We also made some Gruffalo crumble, broomsticks and puppets of characters. Which is your favourite Julia Donaldson book?


In maths we have been identifying and sequencing patterns and numbers. We looked at patterns and identified which ones were patterns and which were not. We used pictures and objects to make our own patterns too. We worked as partners and had to use our communication and teamwork skills. Can you see any patterns in your home?
