Orangutans

Welcome to Orangutans' Class

In Orangutans' class Mrs Strickland is the class teacher and the Teaching Assistant is Mrs Stableford.

 

For the second half of Spring term we are learning about the historic events of 1066. In English, we will be writing explanation texts to explain how Duke William conquered Britain to become King William I. In our history lessons, we will be looking at the events of 1066 which culminated in the Battle of Hastings. We will learn about who was involved and what each of them wanted. We will consider how the events of 1066 had an impact upon Britain as we know it today.

On 19th February we launched our new topic with a trip to Clitheroe Castle, where we re-enacted the Battle of Hastings, handled weapons from the period and learnt about the design of a Motte and Bailey castle.

  

 

In our Science work we will be learning about how living things are classified. We will be using our computing skills to produce interactive presentations that give information about the different classes of animals in a given habitat.

What a fantastic day we have had today (Monday 19th February).  We visited the beautiful Clitheroe Castle.  During the day we re-enacted the events that led up to The Battle of Hastings in 1066.  We built our own (miniature) Motte and Bailey Castles, studied the different types of armour that the vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Normans wore and built an armour for a hard boiled egg.

We had a fantastic day at Brockholes Nature Reserve.  We built our own shelters, made fire and went pond dipping.  At the end of the day, we even had the chance to toast marshmallows.

Class Assembly

During our class assembly we had the opportunity to show off the our parents, and the rest of the school, just how busy we have been over the last 8 weeks.  I don't think we realised just how much work we had done.  Miss Wilson and Mrs Strickland were very proud of us as we wrote the script independently and delivered the assembly with confidence.  Thank you to all of the adults that were able to come and watch us.
