What a busy week we have had in Derwent Class! On Tuesday we went for a walk around Carlton as part of our Geography work. 

The children were able to follow routes on a map to various destinations. Lots of them discovered place in Carlton they never knew about before. 

Then on Wednesday vegetable soup was on the menu in DT. I was really impressed with the careful way the children washed, peeled, cut and cooked the vegetables. Hope you all enjoyed it!

Derwent Class are loving their new History topic. We have been looking at different technology over the decades. The children have been great at sequencing phones and computers and the Year 3s have also been able to label objects with the correct decades. 

We are really excited  because we decided to write letters to Grandparents to ask them to come into school or send letters, to help us to learn about what life was like for them when they were children. We can't wait to learn more!
