Take a look at our amazing learning!
During our Science week 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' we found out lots of interesting information!  We had a visit from the council to talk to us about recycling and we sorted objects and put them into the correct bins.

Thank you to everyone who donated junk modelling materials.  We enjoyed making our own models based on work by the artist Michelle Reader.  
We revisited our learning on 2D and 3D shapes during our science week.  We thought about how shapes could fit together to make a picture using recycled materials.

The Great Fire of London!


We have had the most amazing time re-creating The Great Fire of London.

The children were so excited to see how quickly the fire spread from house to house and it sparked lots of discussion about what we have been learning. Thank you for helping the children to make such amazing models. The children have really enjoyed this topic and it was a great way for them to imagine what happened during the fire in 1666.

We enjoyed sharing the story of the Nutcracker and watching the Royal Ballet perform it accompanied by music composed by Tchaikovsky. We then wrote part of the story using our best handwriting.

We enjoyed learning about the Chinese traditional story 'The Willow Pattern'. We looked carefully at the Willow Pattern plate and used felt tips and paper plates to draw our own versions.

We found out about different habitats from around the world and the animals that live in them. We had so much fun using shoe boxes to make models of them.
