Welcome to Chaffinch Class!


In Chaffinch we are celebrating our love for learning by immersing ourselves in lots of different topics and activities which suit the need of our children and cover the National Curriculum.


During term 1, the children look at life in the Anglo-Saxon times and research what it was like for them as they invaded and settled on new land. In literacy we create our own instruction for a range of activities and evaluate what makes a clear and accurate set of instructions. The children particularly enjoy making their own ‘Revolting Recipes’, where they use a range of range of pungent and horrible foods to create their own ‘dish’. Look out for the pictures of these disgusting creations.


In science, the children learnt about mixing and separating materials. We look at how we know if a material has dissolved or not; how to identify conductos and insulators; how to purify water and learn about why certain materials are used due to their properties.
