Zebra Class 2022-2023
Welcome to the Zebra Class Page
On this page you will be able to find out what we have been learning in school. This term our driver for learning is “Monarchy”. We will be learning about:
- Castles as a home and how they have changed over time.
- Where Castles were built and how that helped to protect the kingdom.
- The lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
- Comparing the lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
- King Charles III and the changes we will see as a result of his accession to the throne.
Curriculum evening presentation
We were all very excited to go on a trip to Portchester Castle this week and it didn't disappoint! We had a great time exploring the outer bailey and thinking about all of the features of the castle (including the gardrobes - ask your children!). After lunch we were then all brave like Piglet and climbed the steep spiral steps to the top of the keep. It was very windy but the view was amazing!
Billy and the Dragon
Last week we had quite a shock when we came back into the classroom to find that someone had been in to have a party! However, they had disappeared...leaving cake, drinks and un-popped party poppers behind. We aren't sure who it was, but it is very similar to the events of the story 'Billy and the Dragon'. This week we have been looking at the story in more depth, including thinking about the language used by the author and considering ways we could improve this.
Forest School fun!
We had a lovely afternoon for our first Forest School session of the year. We enjoyed exploring the different areas and the activities on offer, including mud kitchen recipes, music and bird watching.
Welcome back! We had a great first week in Zebra class and have spent the week getting settled in! We have been busy finding out about some of our British Values and thinking about how these apply to our classroom. We also set out our class charter, with rules that we will all agree to follow to make our class a safe, fair and happy place to be! We also held an election to vote for our school council members - well done to the 2 children who were elected.
