14.09.18 This week we have started our new Talk for Writing unit. We're all creating our own non-fiction books called How to be Healthy so we've been having fun imitating a model text. Next week we'll write our opening page before innovating the text to incorporate our own ideas.
08.10.18 This week we are learning about 2d shapes in maths. Today the children had to sort their shapes using their own criteria and some of their ideas were very tricky indeed!

12.10.18 As part of our homework this week, the children have created their own models of African animals. The work is amazing and it looks great in our class display!
19.10.18 Spa Day. We had a brilliant day today celebrating all the things we have learned in science this term. We enjoyed making healthy kebabs and exercising outside with Mrs Elks.

We had a great time!
13.02.19 Today we enjoyed a visit from the local fire service and we learned lots about how to keep ourselves safe. Ask your child to tell you about what they found out and to show you how to stop, drop and roll!
13.02.19 Making music about the Great Fire of London. We have been learning how to compose and perform our own music using crescendo and decrescendo to mirror the sounds the fire could have made as it grew and spread before eventually dying out.

26.03.19 Science - Today we made rocket mice. We had to observe, predict, ask questions and collect our results. It was also really good fun! Can you explain why a rocket mouse flies higher when placed on a larger bottle? What is the force which makes the mouse fall back down to Earth?
03.04.19 P.E. Over the last three weeks we've been learning all about archery and today we had a big class competition to find the best team.
