Welcome to Peake Class
We are named after Tim Peake who is the first British ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut, the second astronaut to bear a British flag patch, the sixth person born in the United Kingdom to go on board the International Space Station and the seventh UK-born person to go into space. Throughout the year, we will be finding out more about Tim Peake’s life and adventures in space.
Term one and two flew by with lots of exciting learning taking place in the classroom. Our confidence and independence has grown and we have settled well into our year two role. We all enjoyed a successful 'come and learn with us' afternoon based on our 'Great Fire of London' topic, building our own houses for Pudding lane.
After an interesting two terms learning all about ‘The Great Fire of London’, this term will see us moving onto the topic 'Around the World in 80 Days'. This topic is geography based and will see us learning about the continents of the world and later on in the term focussing in on the United Kingdom and its surrounding areas. During the term, alongside our topic learning, we will be creating art and DT work based on this theme.
In RE, we will be continuing to learn about Christianity, more specifically the church in the community, baptism and Easter. Within our Science lessons we are going to be looking at 'Animals Including Humans’, exploring animals and their life cycles. In term 4 we will be moving onto 'All Living Things and their Environment'.
Mrs Dawes will be teaching the children PE throughout the year on a Thursday afternoon.
