Christmas week

We have had a fantastic Christmas week in team 5! We have watched a pantomime, had an exciting Christmas party with lots of games and made lots of different Christmas crafts.

In the final assembly, we played our recorders in front of the whole school!

Well done team 5!

I hope everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas break.

See you in 2017!

3D shape model making

Today the children have been working hard to apply their knowledge of 3D shapes.

We used modelling materials (cocktail sticks, straws and plasticine) to build the shapes. We had to have good knowledge of the properties of 3D shapes including the vertices, faces and edges to succeed at the task!

Dogs trust

What an exciting day we have had! This afternoon, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Anna and Mo the dog from Dog’s Trust.

The school council have been raising money for this charity recently so it was good to learn about where our money is going.

Anna told us about how we can be good dog owners as well as how to be safe around dogs.

Thank you Anna and Mo!

Playground hunt

There were some strange objects around the playground today!

We had to follow a set of instructions with clues to find where each object was hidden, take a photograph of the object and write down what we thought it was.

What a strange selection of objects!

Trevon said that his group found a woolly mammoth and Mathew thought that this mean we are learning about the past.

Frankie said that his group found a rubber duck and it might have been left by someone that was having a bath.

Jayden thought that all of the objects were to do with a mammoth having a bath.

Check back later to see what all of this was about!

A taste of the rainforest!

To finish our IPC topic we have been making smoothies using ingredients which are grown in the rainforest.

We voted for the ingredients we wanted to use as a class. The winners were bananas and mangos which come from rainforests in Asia, pineapples which come from the rainforest in South America and coconuts which come from rainforests around the world.

Everybody in the class had a part to play in making the smoothies and the whole class loved the activity!

Jenson: I liked it because it tasted of banana and that is one of my favourite fruits.

Lexxie: I liked making the smoothies because it tasted nice.

Jayden: The smoothie was weird because I half liked it and half didn’t like it!

Frankie: I liked the blending because it mixed solid fruit into liquid.

What was your favourite part of making the smoothies?
