We have had another busy term in Jupiter Class. After Christmas we were happy to return and see our friends and began learning all about Mexico. We now know what the Mexican flag looks like and where Britain and Mexico can be found on a world map. Our favourite part of the topic was when we had a fiesta and got to eat Mexican food with Mercury Class! Jupiter also attended the Panathlon this term along with some of our friends in Venus Class and we were very excited when we helped Wandsworth come in first place! We competed in manual and electric wheelchair slaloms and relay races, the bean bag toss and adapted Kurling. We have been invited to now compete in the Semi-Finals at the end of this month so please keep your fingers crossed for us.
Currently, we are learning all about the author Roald Dahl and have been enjoying reading the story Fantastic Mr Fox as well as some of his other classics. Next half term Jupiter will have a new teacher, Dimitra, and our topic will be Superheroes. We are all also beginning to get very excited for our first ever residential trip! Check back with us soon to hear how we get on in the Panathalon and to see some photos from our camping trip!
Jupiter Class explored our new building in our topic ‘Changes’ during the first half of the Autumn Term. We also looked at changing states by carrying out various science experiments and the changing seasons when we went on an Autumn walk on Putney Heath. We created art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy and celebrated Black History Month. Jupiter Class also attended the Wandsworth Parasports Boccia competition and both of our teams came in 2nd place! Up until December we will be learning all about the Victorians, including what school was like for them and how they celebrated Christmas.
