Welcome to term 4, Woodies!
With the cold winter winds blowing around us, we return to school for the start of Term 4 2017-18 and we are entering a very exciting and important term - Easter term!
We are going to be focussing on the Easter story - that week many, many years ago when Jesus entered the city, riding on a donkey to all the people crying: "Hosannah!", through to his betrayal and arrest, and finally, his earthly death and ressurection. We will be examining the Easter story through the impact it had on the people around Jesus, like his mother, Mary. We will be making connections between the Easter story and the lives of Christians today. We will consider the question: Why do Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good Friday', when it is such a sad day?
We will continue studying spies and spying. In geography, we will continue guiding James Bond through a variety of world-wide locations, using maps and Ipads to help James Bond achieve his missions. James Bond will also expect us to complete our science mission of learning about magnets and how we can use them to help James Bond avoid dangerous situations. As part of this learning we will be writing instructions. Additionally, in PE, we will be learning how to complete gymnastic movements in order to navigate a laser-filled chamber, Wallace and Gromit style! Please remember that some Woodpeckers pupils will continue to swim on Friday mornings.
In science, we willl also investigate the seven life processes of all living creatures and will explain these in our writing. In art, we will continue learning about the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and study its pioneers: Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. In maths we will study equvalent fractions, measurements (capacity) and longer written-based multiplying and divding techniques.

Looking forward to an incredible Easter term!
