R…E…S…P…E…C…T find out what it means to me!

Listening was identified as the main was to easily show respect and that this can happen in the classroom, on…

Amazing Adaptations

By Jodie Williams | February 14, 2019

Today, we used our scientific skills to investigate adaptation, specifically that of birds. We pretended we were Darwin researching the finches found on the Galapagos Islands, aiming to discover if the type of beak or bill would affect the diet and likelihood of survival. We had lots of fun using the ‘beaks’ to collect our…

Chinese New Year

Brilliant Bridges!

By Jodie Williams | February 13, 2019

This week, we have been learning about lots of famous bridges all around the world, their purpose and the materials used for construction. We explored constructing a bridge using dry spaghetti and marshmallows. It was very tempting not to eat the marshmallows! 

Terrific Towers

Stop, Look and Listen

By Jodie Williams | January 24, 2019

We have been learning about the different jobs people do and how these people help us in our daily lives. Our children were lucky enough to have a special visit from our very own Lolly-Pop Lady to teach us about staying safe on the roads. Now we know that we must remember to Stop, Look…

The Natural World

As part of our topic, Years 3 and 4 have been learning about the natural world.  This week we are learning about parts of the plant by making and labelling our own venus fly traps. This will lead on to exploring  life cycles, germination, pollination and seed dispersal. 

Royal Tea Party

By Jodie Williams | January 22, 2019

Year 1 enjoyed a royal visit last week from her Majesty the Queen. The children had been practicing their table manners in preparation for her Majesty.
