On Friday 1st July, we went on our school trip the beach, we had perfect weather for the day. In the morning we completed different tasks including the following; shell survey and bar chart, digging damns, crabs and crab homes, weighing scales challenge, sand art and sandcastles, and 2D shapes with hammers and nails. In the afternoon we enjoyed an ice pole and spent time playing on the beach and building sandcastles! Thank you to the adults who came along for the day!
In DT we have been cooking! Before making our chosen food we had to research which items we would need within our recipe. We wrote out the method, equipment and ingredients and then in the following lesson we made our recipe. We worked in groups to peel, chop and grate the food items before tasting each other’s recipes!
In RE with Mrs Jones we made our garlands which are placed over Hindu gods to show respect. We all used the template to draw and cut out the chosen shape to create our own ones. Here are some of our designs!
In Geography we have been using aerial photographs to create messy maps. We looked at photographs of a local town and used different objects to represent these, ensuring we labelled it using a key to show what each item was representing.
In Science we have been looking at micro habitats and mini beasts. We went on a hunt around the school grounds to see what we could find and drew the habitat and the mini beasts that we saw in our books!
In Art this afternoon we have tried carbon relief printing. This involved us using a picture, a blank piece of paper and carbon relief printing. We chose our own picture to trace over and then added colour using the watercolour paints.
On Wednesday we got to visit a French Gallery set up by Mr Godfrey! The children were able to look at the French Artists and answer questions about what they saw!

In PSHE we tried new healthy snacks! Last week we planned in our groups what our healthy snacks were going to be and then this week we made our snacks. Two groups were making an avocado oatcake snacks and the other two groups were making a a fruit kebab including mango, melon, strawberries, raspberries and apple. We all enjoyed trying new foods.
For our DT day we made our own catapults out of recycled materials. We worked in pairs to design, make and test our our own catapults! We all worked incredibly hard to make our catapults work.
On Tuesday 15th March we visited Colchester Castle as a part of our current topic. We were all very excited to explore the castle.
In Science this week we have investigated germs! Our task was to discover the best way to clean our hands from germs. Everyone put glitter on their hands and then they split up in groups to clean their hands. Miss Bines put glitter on her hands and as a class the children suggested places that she should put her hands. All of the children then had a look around the classroom to see if they could see the glitter (germs) around the classroom. Each group used either a paper towel, just water and water and soap. The children all decided that the best way to clean their hands was to use soap and water
In Design and Technology we have been designing and building our very own catapult in pairs out of lollipop sticks, elastic bands and spoons! We adapted our designs as we found some parts didn't quite work! In a few weeks we will making catapults out of various materials!
Numbers day NSPCC!
For numbers day we all dressed up as numbers and had a maths measure challenge to complete! We used our knowledge of measuring and measured different parts of our body!
In Science we are looking at 'Animals, including humans'. We started off having a look at different animals and their offspring, deciding which animals look like their adults when they're born and which ones don't.
In Art we had a go at creating our own versions of the Great Fire of London. We chose a media to create our background and then added black silhouettes for the buildings. Have a look in our class windows for our finished products.
Our Autumn term topic is
At the movies!
On Thursday 18th November we had our 'Movie Day'. All of the children and adults dressed up as a movie day for a day of activities. We made our very own Mickey Mouse shaped biscuits, designed our own Mickey or Minnie Mouse head as well as retelling a fairy tale story in groups.
On Thursday 7th October we made our very own pizzas! We made the dough ourselves and decided what we wanted to put on top of our pizza! We built our pizzas boxes and designed them ourselves! The recipe is on our class page if you want to try and make them at home!
