“Bringing Learning to Life”

Autumn 2 - Robots

To begin our Robots topic, we read the story “The Iron Man” by Ted Hughes. We continued looking at this book throughout the half term in our English lessons and finally wrote our own robot story based on our own robot character and challenge.


In Science, we learnt about the different types of electricity, where it comes from and what it is used for. Using our science knowledge, we were then able to make circuits. In DT we planned, designed and made a battery-powered light for a Christmas present. We carefully cut out our design using pen knives and learnt different ways to fold and manipulate card.


As it was nearly Christmas time, we also learnt songs and lines to perform at our whole school nativity performance but due to Covid restrictions, we performed as a class in the church instead. This was videoed and sent out to parents
