Explorers Homework (Peter Rabbit)

This half term we will be learning all about Explorers and in particular Peter Rabbit.  As usual children will be given topic homework which will have a range of tasks for them to complete, to support their learning in school.  This will help them develop an understanding of the ways in which, we can find out about the past through discussing primary sources. Both in school and at home, the children will have the opportunity to increase their awareness of past and present explorers, including learning about the life and times of Beatrix Potter.

Another fantastic half-term!

Class 8 have enjoyed another fantastic half term! Thank you to everyone who came and watched our class assembly! The children worked very hard, creating stop motion videos, learning about dragons and even creating their own dragon shadow puppets.

As Science week draws to a close, here are some photos of the activities we have been doing.

During the week, we have researched a scientist. We researched the scientist Marie Curie. We then shared what we had found out with children from Class 4!

Also, we became engineers for the afternoon, investigating the best possible structure to build a sturdy tower, using just marshmallows and spaghetti! Lots of children discovered that building a structure made of up triangles was the best possible solution. At the end, we judged each tower and even enjoyed eating some of the marshmallows!

On Wednesday, Michael Jones from Animal Care visited Class 8 and even brought along his border collie Buddy!
