Croeso i Dosbarth Venus

We hope you have had a lovely summer and are ready for a new exciting term. Our new topic is "Flying High!" which has a science focus of forces and teaches the children about flight.

The children have already decided what they would like to learn through our EPIC (everyone plans in class) planning session.

We will be learning about:

~how to find information from non-fiction books and the Internet

~a range of flying gadgets/machines and the scientific principles

~a range of flying animals and their habitats

~the history of flight

~how to collect and record scientific data

~how to construct a fair test and present scientific information

~how to make and interrogate a database

~how to design and create our own flying toy

***We will be meeting a pilot to find out what it is like to fly!

Water Bottles:

It has been lovely to see our children in new uniform, please label all items clearly.


There will be weekly spelling lists with additional English or Maths when appropriate.

The children will be provided with a homework book in the next fortnight.

We would like all children to prepare an individual presentation to the class about themselves. They can bring props to prompt their talk such as a favourite toy, photographs, sentimental items etc. This will form part of an assessment of their oracy skills. It could be in the form of a shoebox filled with small items to discuss or a small bag of props. Please could the children be ready for their presentation by Monday 24th September.

Please do not hesitate to ask any other questions you may have.
