In RE we are learning about Sikhism. We drew a picture of one of the 5 Ks. One of the 5 Ks is called Kesh. This is where Khalsa Sikhs grow their hair long as hair is a prescious gift from God. We also watched a video about the 5 Ks.In English we have been writing a recount about Traction Man's day. Traction Man is a toy action figure who goes on lots of adventures.One of Traction Man's missions is to save the farm animals from the evil pillows on the planet duvet. Traction Man has a pet called Scrubbing Brush.In art we have been looking at patterns by William Morris. We loo...

The Rowans
During Anti-Bullying week The Rowans watched the film Cinderella. We then talked about how the ugly sisters and wicked step-mother treated Cinderella. We wrote a letter to them to tell them how Cinderella feels when they are mean to her and because they do it all the time it is bullying. We then made suggestions about how they could be nicer to Cinderella and be more aware of how they make her feel. We also looked at what bullying is and how we can stop it and who we could talk to if we felt we were being bullied. We made Power for good paper chains to pledge how we would stop bullying in our ...

The Willows
Above: the Willows class meeting Chas the monkeyOver the past two weeks, the children in the Willows class have been learning about bullying.We have talked about what it really means. Sometimes, one-off accidents or mistakes may happen and while these can make people upset this is not bullying. However, if a person hurts a person's body or feelings over and over again, this is what we would call bullying. Our friend Chas the monkey came in to visit the Willows and he talked to them about how we always need  to tell somebody if we experience bullying. This could be if y...

The Silver Birches
We have been doing lots of learning about Anti-Bullying Week. We have all made a safe network hand. Our safe network hand, is a reminder to us of the people that we have around us to help us when we need help or support. On our thumbs, we chose a person at home who can help us. On our fingers, we chose people in school who can help us. On the palm of our hand, we chose things that we have around us e.g. our pets, cuddly toys or a diary. On our wrists, we chose services around us which can help e.g. the emergency services, Childline or the NSPCC. Also, we have been designing posters. Very kindl...

 This week, in maths we have been practising our speed tables and the year 3s have been practising their individual times tables. We have also been practising adding three numbers together. We have also carried on writing our Stone age non-chronological reports; on Thursday we managed to finish writing them. To help us make our books, we also needed to find some images from the internet, which we printed out. We have also carried on practising our hockey skills and played small matches. This week we even had a go at scoring goals. In RE we have been learning about Hinduism. An intere...

In maths this week,we have been practising our times tables. We have reminded ourselves that we can easily find out the answers to the 6 and 8 times tables by doubling the 3 and 4 times tables. This really helped us to find our fact families. We also learned about factors too. We know that factors are 9 and 1 because 9 x 1 = 9. We found this fun.In English, we planned our non-chronological reports. As a class, we made a toolkit to remind us of the features that we need to put in our non-chronological reports. When we have finished writing them, we are going to make them into a class book!Since...

This week has been very fun! Yesterday we made a stone age recipe using berries, honey, apples and pears to make stewed fruit. It tasted delicious and we all tried some. The recipe was really fun to make. The honey flavour made the recipe really sweet. Some of us thought that the recipe was a little too sweet. The berries tasted a little like red wine - they were very sour. After tasting the recipe, we all got red lips and red tongues!In maths we have been learning about column subtraction. Our homework this week, has been to write a quest story. In English, we have been learning about qu...

The Silver Birches
In the Silver Birches, we have been practising our hockey skills. This week we played a game where we had four people in a team, but we played 3 vs 1. This meant that we had a defender who was trying to get the ball to earn a point. The rest of us had to try to pass the ball to try to stop it being intercepted by the defender.In History and in Art we have been making cave paintings. We did this by squishing lots of different types of fruits and berries. We used berries to copy what people in the stone age would have done. We also ground up chalk to make white paint. We used a spoon to grind th...

 We have had some lovely sunshine here over the past couple of weeks and as you may have noticed, we have moved all of our outdoor learning to the back garden. It is great for the children to have everything they need in one place and it helps that it has such lovely surroundings.   The children have been showing a real interest in mini-beasts recently and we have been weaving this into many areas of their learning. Thank you to all who have been donating various resources for our Bug Hotel. We are well on the way now but will always welcome outdoor resources such as bamboo...
