Look at this - more Multplication Magicians! These maths wizards know all their times table facts and are inspiring the rest of the class to learn them too!

We had a lovely World Book Day afternoon sharing books with our buddy class...

We are very proud to announce our first times table superstar! Ella knows all her multiplication and division facts all the way up to 12x12. Very well done Ella!

What a fantastic trip to We the Curious! We had so much fun watching, learning, testing, trying, measuring, making and exploring...

In PE this term we have been learn how to express ideas through dance. These photos show us being storms, tornados and other dramatic weather systems.

Day two of our child led teaching and we learnt about the planets and dinosaurs, made willow bands, created stop motion animation, learnt how to throw and kick rugby balls accurately and shot hoops in basketball. Well done teachers!

We have been learning all about solids, liquids and gases this week, investigating how heat and cold can change the state of matter and had great fun handling Ooblek and watching it change from solid to liquid

Today, the children of Otter Class took over the job of teaching and did a fabulous job of it. Lots of fun, creativity and great learning took place. Well done to all our new teachers!

We took part in a skipping workshop and learnt how to skip forwards and backwards. We got pretty good at it!

We were visited by the Dogs Trust who taught us how to stay safe around dogs and care for them properly.

We finished our Hinduism topic with a day of fun activities including creating a class Rangoli pattern and designing henna hand patterns and Diwali posters

The early Anglo Saxons used a Runic alphabet. We had a go at making pendants using this alphabet to inscribe our initials.

For National Poetry Day, we had a poetry slam and really enjoyed performing in front of the rest of the class.

We have been learning about Ango-Saxon lifestyles and decided to have a go at making our own models of a typical Anglo-Saxon hillfort and houses. We realised that it wouldn’t have been easy for them to build structures strong enough to withstand enemy attacks and bad weather!

We are learning the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. We had a go at re-enacting the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
