Sporting Stars

This term has been very sporty with a strong focus on athletic events, both track and field. As always Chagwa have demonstrated a superb attitude in all their endeavours and are always looking for new personal bests!


This term our topic is mysteries and discoveries - we have already looked at lots of different types of riddles in Literacy and have been uncovering new information across all our other subjects!


We are working hard this term to remind ourselves of all the work we have covered this year and to focus on areas for improvement e.g. Fractions.

We have also been working on our problem solving skills through our mini maths week with lots of wonderful activities.


We have looked at poetry in the form of riddles and are currently writing our own fantasy stories which will be amazing as the children have such incredible imaginations and wonderful ideas. We have been enjoying reading 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' and can't wait to find out what happens next!



We have been learning about light this term including both the benefits and dangers of exposure to light. The children have really enjoyed using mirrors to write secret messages and to navigate mazes and have also demonstrated excellent knowledge of sun safety - which they demonstrated on sports day!

Design Technology Day

This term we explored methods of transport - we focused on making different types of paper planes and tried lots of different designs that we found online. If you would like to know how to make some of our exciting planes be sure to ask the children how to make them!
