Dahl Class

Mrs Divall
Welcome to Dahl Class

Welcome back to Dahl Class –  it has been so lovely to catch up with all the children after the Christmas Holidays.

This term we are studying the county of Somerset, thinking about how geographical features impact on local industry. We are hoping to visit Frogmary Farm to study local farming and are setting up a Zoom meeting with a Cheddar cheese producer. This will allow us to find out how Somerset’s unique geography makes it perfect for producing Cheddar cheese.

Staying with the theme of all things local, after Half term we will be studying the River Parrett, from source to mouth and working with local charcoal artist, Kate Lynch.

In Science, we will continue with our Light and Dark topic, studying light sources and shadows and then after half term, the topic will be Forces and Magnets.

In English, we will look at a variety of genres, including Somerset Folk Tales and some topic related books. We will be creating a ‘Welcome to Somerset’ leaflet.

After Half term, our D.T. topic will be bridges. There will be lots of opportunity for practical work and structural building.

PSHE this term is ‘Dreams and Goals’, followed by ‘Healthy Me’ and in R.E. we will be finding out about Judaism.

As always, we invite children to bring in any relevant ‘Show and Tells’ and to share with us their successes from things they do outside of school.

The timetable has changed slightly but could children ensure P.E. kit is in school every day. Sometimes events conspire against us and so we have to move our Hall slot for P.E. to a different time. We are also hoping to continue doing our Daily Mile.

Please do not hesitate to come and see me with any questions you may have.
