Geography - Where do I live and what makes it special?

Our new topic is Geography. In our first lesson the children explored the grounds of the school. They will be making plans, using google maps and compasses and then finishing with a trip around Darlington town centre.

Science - Three Little Pigs

September 16, 2019

What materials did the Three Little Pigs use to build their house?

Our first topic this term was Science and the children investigated the best material to build a house. They explored different materials and looked at their properties. The children then designed and made their houses to see if they could withstand a puff from the big bad wolf!
