Our science focus this term is plants and the children have been learning all about pollination. They have worked together to create some super animations - you can see a great example by Charlie and Maisie below.
Everyone coped brilliantly with the heat when we, along with our Sports Ambassadors, took part in the Mini Olympics at the Meres Stadium. The event is organised by Inspire+ and over 1000 children from primary schools all over the county took part. We were very proud to parade our banner, representing Portugal, that we had designed and created. As well as meeting the Inspire+ Ambassadors, the children had the opportunity to take part in a range of Olympic and Paralympic sports which they thoroughly enjoyed. It was a fantastic day and everyone did their very best. You can find more photos in the Gallery.
We had a very successful trip to Pizza Express where we were able to make our very own pizzas. They tasted great!
I was very proud of the class when we took part in the recent KS2 Music Celebration. As well as singing we were able to show off our skills at djembe drumming.
World Book Day
Everyone made a great effort to dress as their favourite book character on World Book Day! After a very busy morning, the children were excited when Miss Dyer came and read them a story during the afternoon. They then had the chance to read with other children from all different classes and they really enjoyed spending time sharing books. The atmosphere in the classroom was wonderful and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Over the last three weeks, we have been learning how to fence. Mrs Kemp has been very brave allowing us to use foils in order to score points on our opponents vest. We have learnt all about footwork and movement patterns and we are very excited about using this in a competition for our final week.
'Rock It!' Home Study
We have thoroughly enjoyed our science work this term and I am so pleased with the Home Studies brought in to school this week. As you can see the children have been working very hard creating models, drawing diagrams and writing super explanations. Thank you to everyone who helped at home! More photos can be found in the Gallery.
The children worked very hard researching facts about mammoths and then wrote some great non-chronological reports. You can read a selection below.
The Life of Buddha
The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Buddhism and the life of Buddha and have produced some fantastic writing. You can see examples below.
I was so proud of the class when they, along with the children in Year 4, led our Harvest celebration. We all had great fun learning the songs and the children worked wonderfully together to perform in front of their friends and family. Well done everyone!
