REQM Silver Award

To help us understand the lifecycle of a butterfly, we kept caterpillars in our classroom. When the butterflies finally emerged, we set them free in the Year R garden area.

In our science lessons, we have been growing cress to help us find out about what plants need to grow healthily. We then used the healthy cress to make egg and cress sandwiches.

We grew beans in bags on the window so that we could watch the roots grow. We then planted them into pots in the hope that they will keep on growing.


Our topic this term is ‘The Victorians’. We will find out what Hackleton School was like in the late 1800’s using our school log books from that time and look at similarities and differences between our lives and the lives of both rich and poor children then. We will learn about significant people such as Florence Nightingale, Queen Victoria and Alexander Graham Bell and look at the impact they have had on the lives of people today. We will also learn about the Great Exhibition and discover the amazing inventions of the Victorian era.
