Curwen Primary School


Autumn 2 Update

We have had a busy and very exciting few weeks at school, here are some of the things we have been up to in Autumn 2…

In Science we have been learning about ‘Electricity’. We have been learning how circuits work so that we can make a working lamp for Marvin the Mouse! We have been using our investigative skills to test out different ways of making circuits and the best way to create a light for Marvin’s house.

We produced an amazing performance of drama, literacy, art and music showcasing what we had learnt throughout our ‘Great Fire of London’ topic. We loved reading all of the positive comments from the parents and carers who attended.

In Literacy we have been learning to write instructions.

We made jam sandwiches or pizzas and wrote instructions for someone else to follow. Our favourite part was eating the food we had prepared!

We have been doing lots of work on representing problems in different ways- by acting out, using concrete resources such as counters and cubes, with pictures and symbols, and through abstract forms such as equations and calculations.
