In the Tigers class, we work hard to develop our independence and initiative. We are
enjoying taking our first steps in greater independence in our learning, being able to work
on personal projects like investigating Stone Henge during our History topic of the Stone
Age. During our learning, we strive to be active learners: enquiring to deepen our
understanding, being involved in-class discussion, and supporting our peers when they need
We look to the prehistoric past and Early Middle Ages to help us understand the present,
learning about how the Stone Age peoples and the Saxons helped to shape Britain as it is
today. We also thread through this our developing knowledge of Geographical places, in
particular the mountains and volcanoes of Europe and the rivers of North America,
understanding the opportunities and threats to life when living in such places.
In our science sessions, we work with partners to plan, conduct and evaluate different
experiments. Our topics this year include sound, living things, states of matter, and
electricity, culminating in our exciting DT cross-curricular topic when we use all our skills for
the Big Build.
We have a wealth of really exciting things to learn this year whilst we develop our own
personal skills and individuality. We know that being a Tiger is a safe and supportive space
to learn and a team for life.
