Mr Curtis' Class
We returned to school in the New Year to a very exciting topic!
Space, Stars and Aliens!
5C took part in 2 days of astronaut training to make sure they were up for the challenge.
Day 2 consisted of creating and testing our 'Eggnauts' (egg astronauts!), some were more successful than others!
It all started with a secret top mission.
The children had to decipher the clues to work out what our Autumn topic would be! Many guessed World War 2, but World War 1 was a bit of a surprise. We were astonished about how little many of us knew about The Great War. Not for long though!
We have spent the last few months finding out about it, from families being torn apart by conscription, to the only woman fighting on the front-line, Flora Sandes. A British woman, who was turned down by her own government, became first a nurse in Serbia and then went on to become an officer of the Serbian army.
In art the children created their own beautiful poppies using black and red sugar paper. They were then used to decorate a tree in the school grounds as part of remembrance weekend.
