Term 4

Term 4 has been another busy one for Bramley Class. We have delved deeper into our topic ‘Local History’, comparing maps and photos and even enjoying a visit from Mr Stewart (a member of the Collier Street Historic group). In R.E., we have been considering the big question, ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday?’ Children have thought about the events of Holy Week and the impact these events have on Christians today.

Term 3

The children have been learning about light in science and have thoroughly enjoyed investigating reflective surfaces and how to change the length of a shadow. In English, we have been inspired by the book ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan and children have produced some excellent character descriptions. Our art lessons this term have been focusing on the work of LS Lowry. Children have practised drawing with perspective and recreated some of his famous pieces.

Term 2

Our topic ‘The Natural World’ continued this term in Bramley Class with children learning about volcanoes, earthquakes and local issues such as flooding. During design technology lessons, children designed and constructed their own bird feeders. A wide range of designs were created with great success! Forest school has been another highlight of this term. Children ventured to our woodland area weekly to enjoy a wide range of activities including fire lighting, weaving and whittling.

 Term 1

Our topic this term is ‘The Natural World’. In geography, pupils have been learning about the world’s climate zones and biomes. They identified the key features of each climate zone and biome and compared different locations around the world.


In art, pupils have been using a range of different mediums to represent the seven natural wonders of the world. Pupils used oil pastels to represent the Grand Canyon in the USA, wax crayons to create the Paricutin Volcano in Mexico and sketching pencils to draw Mount Everest in Nepal/China.

Learning as we grow. Growing as we learn. Rooted in Jesus.
