Welcome back we hope everyone had a good holiday, there are lots of exciting things planned at Heybrook this term…
At Heybrook School, we have stopped doing dimensions. We have moved onto different, unique kinds of topic work, e.g Year 6 have been learning on the topic, The Suffragettes and their past topic was the conservation of animals.
Year 5 have been learning about Ancient Greece, their book is called Odysseus – about a Greek Myth by Homer of an Odysseus horrible business trip. Question – “What is important about democracy?”
Year 4 have been learning about The Early Islamic Civilization. Their question is “What has the early Islamic Civilization left for us?” Book – Pea Boy.
Year 3 have been learning about The Stone Age to The Iron Age. Their Question is “When do you think it will be better to live in – The Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age?” Their book is called UG.
Year 2 have been reading the book Rapunzel. Their question is “Should girls be treated differently to boys?”
Year 1 have been reading the book Secret Sky Garden and their question is “Who can change the world? Who can be the best leader?”
Reception have been learning about Chinese New Year and Africa. Their book is called Handa’s Surprise. They’ve also been learning about different cultures. Their Question is “How are we same, and how are we different?”
Moving on, each year group are going on different trips which they will most likely enjoy.
Year 6 are going on a Residential to Robinwood, Dobroyd Castle.
Year 2 are not going on a trip but a pantomime is coming to school and are putting on the show called Cinderella on the 10th of January, Friday. They will also have visitors coming into school and work on a workshop about inspiring women.
Year 4 are too having visitors on 20th February by Noisy Toys to provide an interactive science show.
Year 3 are going to Outdoor Elements on 30-31st January.
All years, over the Christmas holidays have been given some homework and they came back with excellent results and ideas. The homework for year 1 was to make a shoe box garden, for year 2 they made towers using recycled materials. For year 3, they got the task to craft storage shelters out of cardboard. Year 5 have researched on either a Greek God or a Greek Goddess and year 6 have made fantastic posters for women rights.
The curriculum is a good way of learning. I don’t think we should go back to dimensions; our current curriculum is exciting and was made by Mrs T. Moore.

Year 5 started the term by experiencing a taste of Greek life. They wrote their name using the Greek alphabet, learnt a Greek dance and enjoyed some Greek food. It was a great sparkling start for our new topic; Ancient Greece.
