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

Life Cycles

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.


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.
