We have had such an amazing week.
Our Art days focused on plastic pollution, and we read the story of Isatou in The Gambia who found her own solution to plastic pollution. We worked in teams with children from Eagles class and retold the story in pieces of art, using the style of the book illustrator - Elizabeth Zunon.
Today we celebrated the Platinum Jubilee in style. We all wore our hats and enjoyed a lot of cake!!
The whole school came together on the field to sing the National Anthem, accompanied by the recorders and KS2 sang the song 'Sing' with some musical accompaniment and soloists. It really has been a very special day!

We are becoming real Shakespeare experts in Kites.
On Wednesday we had our Tempest workshop. This was great fun. We got to use our drama skills and recreated different parts of the story. We then used this as inspiration to write our own spells for Prospero. We illustrated thin work by learning how to do batik and have created some beautiful pieces of art.
In PE we had time to practise our throwing skills and learned about throwing the discus and javelin.
Next week we are looking forward to our art days and to the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations on Thursday

We have had a busy and fun couple of weeks.
Firstly we loved getting outside and planting up our outside area with our sunflowers and all the plants very kindly donated by B&Q.
Our work on Macbeth has been very interesting, and we have produced some amazing art work and writing. We are very much looking forward to our workshop on The Tempest.
We have all been interested to learn in history about how we came to have Kings and Queens and about Athelstan being the first King of England. We are now learning about Queen Elizabeth I.
On Thursday we will be looking at each other's homework Fact Files and sharing about the different people we have found out about - we will hopefully use these to make a class book.

This week has been busy with DT.
We started off the week learning how to make wooden frames. We then investigated different shaped cams and looked at how they worked.
Everyone designed a weather toy, thinking about how a cam could make something move.
We are now busy making our wooden frames for our cam mechanism to fit inside.
Everyone is looking forward to two days out next week - our trip to Langford lakes and our Taster Day at Sheldon. Fingers crossed for more sunny weather.

World Book day has been amazing! Such creative STORY BOXES. All the children were very proud to show them off to each other.
All the performances in the POETRY SLAM were outstanding. The children did so well to learn the poems in such a short amount of time and then perform. I am very proud of how well they all did.

This week we have continued to learn about weather. We have been doing our own research and thinking about how weather has an impact on how some people live.
Some children went down to the pond this week with Danny Towl. They had a great time recording the temperature of the pond and doing some planting.

We have loved writing our poetry ideas this week. We have been using similes, metaphors, and personification.
In maths we have begun to learn long multiplication and how to set out our calculations.
Today was amazing. We had ROCKTOPUS come to school. We wrote a song and performed some dance moves, creating an awesome music video.
This afternoon in FOREST SCHOOLS we made clay faces and hid them around the forest school area or took them home.

We have had a busy start to our Spring Term.
We had lots of fun talking about our New Year's Resolutions and then wrote poems with a difference:
I will never jump into an active volcano
I will always eat fruit
I will never kiss an ape on its bottom
I will always enjoy going for walks
You can ask the children all about them.
We also made a start on our learning in geography, thinking about what we know about our world and weather and climate. We are looking forward to continuing our learning.
On Monday we will begin our learning in Rugby. Please remember to come in PE kits. You might need some spare shoes as it will be muddy on the field
