To immerse ourselves in our new text 'The Green Ship' we visited Derby park to experience the sights, sounds, smells and our feelings in a real life over-grown, natural setting. This helped us make our seeting descriptions back in class really come to life!

In Miss Hearn's maths group we have been looking at lots of different ways of measuring, we learnt how to use a trundle wheel and used it to measure different things around the playground. We also have been learning how to convert m to cm and cm to m! Our brains were tired by the end of it all!

Today we all went to Christ Church to see all the features of a Christian church that we have been learning about in RE such as the pulpit, altar, font, pews and praying stools. Reverend Josie told us all about Christmas time in the church, explained some of the special symbols and we had a grand tour!

Talk like a pirate day!

In order to this we had a great big snowball fight, where we each wrote part of a sentence, threw our snowballs and then extened someone else super sentence. As you can see it was great fun!

Refugees Narrative Week


This week we have all been sharing the same story book 'Refugees' by David Miller, in which two poor, defenceless ducks are forced out of their habitat by rumbling tractors gouging up the swamp. Here are some photographs of the 3D swamp models we made and our freeze frames of sections from the story.
