The children have worked hard on their Spanish accents and conversation to ask each other the time. The children answered the register in Spanish this morning with the time they woke up this morning. There were some early risers!

African Dance

Mrs Outram helped us to learn African dancing with the use of a clock face, we were really good and kept in time!

Technology - we are making toys using Cams, we have been measuring, sawing, drilling and having a great time!


We have learnt all about flowering plants this week. Look at our detailed flower dissections.

We have learnt about the unusual life cycles of frogs, newts, butterflies and dragonflies today. We had to find the fact cards carefully hidden in the nature conservation area, to help fill in the missing facts on our sheets.

Maths: we have been revisiting place value this week, using place value counters to secure our knowledge.

Geography: We used a compass today to find north and then, used it to help us draw the  letters below.

The simplest letter was a C -follow these instructions to draw one:

We are consolidating our knowledge of continents and oceans. We had a great lesson hunting for pieces of the world jigsaw hidden around the field - we then had to check we had the correct pieces and put the map together.
