We have completed our handmade forest in DT. We each made a tree using wire and beads. We used something we found as a base plate for our trees. We’ve used pebbles, shells and clay! It was so much fun and don’t the trees look beautiful in their very own miniature forest! We will be bringing them home today.
We had lots of fun outside today by combining PE and Geography together to complete an orienteering challenge. We used maps with coordinates to find stamps around the school grounds. We had so much fun we would like to do it again.

In science we are looking at the three different states of matter, liquids, solids and gases. Today we were investigating gases and having fun into the bargain. Science is exciting and practical science is great. We’re doing more tomorrow!
We love our mums and we are finishing off the touches to our ‘magical Mother’s Day cards’. We can’t show you what they look like now, all will be revealed on Sunday!
We have been taking a leaf out of Michelangelo’s book and learning to paint, not on the ceiling but lying on our backs painting under the table. It gave us a little taste of what it must have been like painting the Sistine Chapel. We only did it for an hour whereas it took Michelangelo four very long hard year to paint the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling.
Today (Thursday 8th March) we belatedly celebrated World Book Day as the original date was cancelled due to snow! Sparrowhawks dressed up as a range of book characters from Hermione Granger to the big skeleton from Funnybones. We all had great fun and look forward to extending our reading even more over the coming year until 2019’s World Book Day.
Learning to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and even 1000 is so much easier when you have to do something practical!
