Oliver has been very busy at home this week making some wonderful sock puppets to go on our jungle display. Well done Oliver! We love seeing the amazing home learning you are busy doing.
Please remember everyone to read 3 times per week at home and log it in your reading diary. Every time you read you will be rewarded with 5 house points.
Class 6 love their new learning environment to explore and learn about animals that live in our animal kingdom.
Year One had an amazing day yesterday at The Deep. The children loved seeing all of the animals and we even got to see some divers too! We are so excited to now learn all we can about under the sea creatures at school.
Class 6 have been so busy today immersing our classroom to be a jungle and under the sea setting. We have been enjoying our new jungle hut and creating some celery print fish. As well this, exploring what we already know about our animal kingdom and what we’d like to find out next…Watch this space!
On Friday Class 7 had the best day creating Dens for Save the Children. The children worked brilliantly together as a team to build dens and then wrote to a local school to explain why Den Day is so important. The children had lots of fun and thoroughly enjoyed working in their new hideouts (I loved it too!)

How do Class 10 learn about the water cycle? By creating it in a plastic bag of course! We have created perfect miniature climates inside clear plastic backs and attached them to the window.
As the sun shines through the window, it heats the water allowing it to evaporate into water vapour. As it cools, it condenses back into water droplets – in a clear demonstration of the water cycle!! See if you see it working!
In science, we have been learning how materials change state and in maths, we have been looking at statistics in maths and how to read and draw tally charts, bar charts and line graphs – so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to use chocolate to investigate our theme in a little more detail!
To complete the tally charts, we quizzed year 4 on their preferred chocolate flavours and then converted the results into a bar chart – making sure we had a correct scale and appropriate labels.
To generate data for our line graph, we investigated how quickly chocolate melted and compared the temperature of the water as it cooled the chocolate! Class 10 showed great restraint with all the melted chocolate around the class room!
Members of Class 10 have really been embracing this term’s homework by getting creative in the kitchen. As well as ‘cress-head eggs’ and ‘chopping board water cycles’, we have also had (in true Willy Wonka style) homemade chocolates designed and produced by our class members! They look incredibly professional – I hope they taste as good as they look!
