Curwen Primary School


Spring 1 Update

In Literacy we read a story called ‘Chocolate Planet’, about a planet made of sweets and chocolate. It inspired us to write our own fantasy story. To help us think of ideas we created our own chocolate planet with real sweets and chocolate, and invented our own character who featured in our stories. We wrote our own story using interesting words like delicious, scrumptious and tasty. We even ate some of our chocolate planet afterwards!

This term one of our favourite maths topics was 2D and 3D Shapes. We applied our knowledge of sahpes and their properties by sorting using a venn diagram or a carroll diagram. We also explored making different shapes on peg boards, and we reasoned whether they were the correct shapes using maths vocabulary.

Our topic this half term has been ‘Comparing the UK and Ghana/Japan’. We have developed our map reading skills and even went on a walk around the outside of the school to help us create our own map of our local area.
