We really enjoyed sharing our work about the Titanic on our exhibition day. We worked hard to write information pages and create beautiful art pieces using a variety of tools. materials and skills. It was fun to find out whether our boats would sink or float!

DT - We tasted, designed and made Couscous salads and then we tasted and evaluated our creations.

In our science we investigated the micro-habitats on the heathland and went on a bug hunt. We found centipedes, woodlice, flies, worms and lots of plants and shrubs.

In our whole school art we were challenged to create a piece of art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. Didn't we do a great job!


To introduce our new topic about Pirates we did lots of fun activities.  We went to the hall to meet a real life pirate, where we learned about the history of pirates, real Vs fake pirates, true and false facts.  We also looked at a mysterious sack that had arrived at school. We had to guess who the things belonged to and we then read “Polly Parrot Picks a Pirate” to find out what it is like to be a pirate.  Finally, we did lots of sensory activities in role as a pirate. It was super fun!

Writing Ideas for Newspaper Reports - We worked with a partner to write a headline and the first line of a newspaper report about the Great Fire of London.

Autumn Pointillism

Netball - We really enjoyed our Netball lessons as part of our enhanced P.E. curriculum. We were taught by a professional coach and built up our skills over six weeks.
