As a class, we are preparing for Advent and the birth of Jesus by creating our own advent wreath. We have learnt about the important symbols in an advent wreath and what it represents.

In our Science lesson, we learnt about reversible and irreversible changes in materials. We conducted an experiment to see what irreversible and chemical changes would occur when we mixed milk, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda together. It created a new product, and was very smelly!

Look at our amazing half term projects based on our local area! Thank you to our pupils and their families for all their hard work.

We have had so much fun in our yoga sessions this term!

Our topic for the autumn term is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. In Art, we learnt about Viking runes and by the end of the session we were able to write our own messages using it. We even played a game of Viking hangman!

Thank you to Fr. Dermot for visiting us this morning! We enjoyed listening to you sharing the Wednesday Word with us, and asking you questions about what it is like to be a priest.

In English, we will be studying King Kong by Anthony Browne this half term. At the beginning of our text, we discovered a crime scene outside our classroom! The children became detectives and began to question where the footprints came from, why they were there and who left them there.

In RE, our topic is Ourselves. We have been learning about how we are all special and important, as we are all children of God. In one of our lessons, we studied Genesis 1:26-31. We learnt that God created us all individually to take care of the world and each other. After, we created our own figurines and considered what qualities we would give to them.

In English, we have studied The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas. We learnt about our different emotions, why we might feel different things and how we can handle our emotions. The children have found this very useful for recognising and handling their own emotions, especially during this challenging time.
