Y1 visited the Nanjing Museum for their 'Dinosaur Planet' topic; Y2 visited Duchesse Bakery to learn how to make bread for their 'Muck, Mess and Madness' topic, Y4 climbed Fangshan Mountain for their 'Misty Mountain Sierra' topic and Y5 visited Baijaihu 1912 and rode the Ferris Wheel (and managed to squeeze in a cheeky ice cream!) for their 'Scream Machine' topic. You would think there was no time for class based learning at all, but at the end of November years 2 - 5 undertook tests in Reading, Maths and SPaG, as well as completing two "Big Writing' tasks during the second half of the term. The results of these tests show that our students are making good progress and will inform us where we need to focus our teaching next term.
