Mrs Beale and Mrs Jones
We celebrated the children's first Holy Communion with a party. The children had the opportunity to dress up in their special clothes.
French Day
On Tuesday 20th June we had a great day learning about France, preparing for the market, singing french songs and practicing speaking in French. The french market was very popular and we bought and ate a variety of foods and drink using Euros. Children and a MFL teacher from Moyles court visited us and helped to run the french market with Mrs. Beale and year 6.
Sports Week
During sports week, we participated in sports day, water sports, circus skills and golf. We had a great time.
During this part of the Spring term, we have been learning about forces. The children carried out a fair test to see which surface the car would need the most force to pull it. We used Newton meters to measure force needed to move the car over different surfaces.
We have been learning about the Romans. We made shields and then had great fun practising the Latin commands and actions that they would have used in battle.
In Science we have been learning about shadows. We investigated which materials are opaque, translucent and transparent and which made dark shadows, pale shadows or no shadow at all.
We have been learning about the Stone Age in our History lessons. Year 3 designed and created their own Stone Age clay pots.
In Geography, we have been learning about where our food comes from. We went on a trip to Tesco to learn more.
During the Autumn term we looked at the work of Monet. The children recreated the paintings, 'Waterlillies' and 'Magpie' using a variety of techniques.
