Science Week 

We had lots of fun doing some Science week experiments. We are linking our current topic light and the science week theme time to try our own Sun printing! We can’t wait to see the results in a few weeks time! We then enjoyed doing another science experiment where we linked our last topic Animals with the science week theme and explored how animals adapt to their environment! We had fantastic time trying to camouflage our moths with things in the classroom! Look how creative we got!

World Book Day

We had a fantastic day dressing up as our favourite book characters and authors! We enjoyed being able to read lots of different books, take a book home from our school book swap and being read a story from another class teacher!

RE - creation Art 

We read a fantastic book about the creation story and exploring all the colours in creation. We then had a great time creating our own paintings

Wellbeing Day

We had a fantastic wellbeing day taking part in lots of different activities and exploring our own super power and what makes us unique. 

Current Learning - Spring 1 - Ancient Egypt

Victorian diaries - we wrote first person diaries then shared them with year 2.

Science Experiment

We had the most fun learning about Victorian inventor Sir George Cayley and his invention of the glider! We made our own gliders and went outside to test how far they could fly!

International Week 

As part of International week, we had a wonderful parent visitor in to tell us all about life in Hong-Kong! It was wonderful to hear some of the children share with us about their life and culture and even teach us some new words in Cantonese. We were all definitely inspired to travel and go and visit Hong-Kong!

Parent Pop-in

As part of our Science topic on Victorian inventors, inspired by the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we built bridges out of straw for our Parent-pop in. We then tested them to see whose bridge could support the weight of different objects. We had fantastic fun being engineers!

Black History Month

Throughout October we have been learning about influential Black Women in History. As part of the 2023 theme ‘Celebrating Our Sister’s’, we have been learning all about the work of people in the past, present and even in our own community! We created our own information booklet about them and their achievements, fit with a contents page and glossary! Once it was finished we read it out to Year 4!

Reflection Time in the Outdoors

As part of reflection time we have been leaning about the Creation Story. We went out into God’s creation (nature) and thought about how our actions positive and negatively affect his creation of the world, what we can do to help look after God’s creation and how we could use God’s creation to make our own wonderful art work.

Previous Learning - Autumn Term 2 - The Victorians


This half term we have had lots of fun learning all about forces and magnets. We have conducted lots of our own experiments to investigate how magnets and forces work.
