Look at what we have been up to this week :

We watched the Big anti-bullying assembly 2020 and wrote our support group on hand prints.

Week beginning 21st September

Elder class enjoyed cricket in the sunshine with Tom this week.

In science, Elders discovered the visible rainbow when sunlight is refracted through a prism. They made their own colour wheels. When the strings were pulled the colours merged.

Week beginning 14th September

Elder class really impressed me with their short stories based on the film clip ‘Wing’. There was some fantastic creativity to be seen.

In science we learnt about refraction and completed two experiments to show the optical illusions refraction can cause.

We had our first whole school assembly of the year! It was via Zoom and we all agreed that Mrs Lamb did a great job! It was funny seeing the other children in their classrooms on our whiteboard.

Elder class have designed self-portraits in the style of Romero Britto. They look amazing on display in our classroom.

Week beginning 7th September

Elder class had a great time with Tom in PE doing cricket on the field in the sunshine.

Elder class used dadwavers as a format for improving their sentence structures.

They have begun making self portraits in the style of Romero Britto.
