We were very lucky to have had some visitors to our class. Some architects came into our class to help us with our own architecture project! They helped us to design and make our own buildings. We looked at and considered what our buildings would be used for and what they needed in order to make sure they served that purpose. We came up with some fantastic imaginative designs!

What was the purpose of your buildings? What did you need to make sure your building had? What did you find difficult when constructing your building?
Next term we will be designing and creating our own computer game.
Before we start we need to see what other games are available and think about what we like and dislike about them.
Take a look at the links below, have a play and think about the following questions:
What do you notice about the games?
What are the algorithms behind them?
What sets the good game apart? context? Challenge? progression?
We have just started our new topic of Climate Change.
Over the holidays your home learning is to research Climate change, what is means and what impact it can have.
You can present your findings in whatever way you want.
Today in our Maths lesson we looked at the work of artist Wassily Kandinsky and his use of shape in his artwork.
Your homework is to create a drawing (or painting if you want), using shape.Use colour if you can!
You should use the following shapes in your picture. You can use as many as you want of each shape. Remember to use a ruler to draw straight lines.
- A circle
- A semi-circle
- A square
- A rectangle
- A quadrilateral with all sides of different lengths
- An equilateral triangle
- A right-angled triangle
- An isosceles triangle (two equal sides)
- A scalene triangle (with no equal sides and no equal angles)
You can try including 3D shapes too, if you like!
This week it is British Science week, all week we will be developing our scientific enquiry skills!
As well as becoming SUPER SCIENTISTS ourselves it is important for us to learn about famous scientist throughout history who have changed the way we understand the world.
Your home learning this week is to research a famous scientist of your choice and present your findings. You will find lots of relevant help here.
Over the weekend your home learning is to choose one climate zone to investigate.
Include research on the following things:
Where is your zone found? (Poles, equator, tropics, North, South, countries?)
What is the climate like?
What lives there? Animals? Plants? People?
Any interesting facts?
Today we spent a wonderful morning at the Spinney, looking for worms, creating clay animals and having all sorts of fun in the mud.
Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to.
What was your favourite part? Why do you love the spinney?
Today we have been celebrating the wonderful world of books as it is world book day!
We made costumes based on two of our class novels and the children looked fantastic.
Everyone will be given a one pound book token to spend click here for a link of the books available this year.
If you want some inspiration for your next book then there is a brilliant list here.
Can you imagine how it would it feel if someone told you your opinion didn’t matter – just because you were a girl?
