As part of our Greek topic we have been looking at Icarus. In DT we have made some brilliant wings our of modelling wire and fabric. We really enjoyed the design process and working our how much of what material we needed! Look at some of our fantastic results!
In maths we have been looking at measuring and shape. We measured how long dinosaurs were and we were really shocked! We like drawing on the playground and it shows our learning and understanding!
We had a fantastic day for world book day. We had some amazing outfits! Read lots of different books, designed our own book tokens and enjoyed looking at everyones favourite books!
At the start of our topic we asked children if they thought graffiti was art or vandalism, the results are in the top of the picture. We’re now half way through the topic and we’ve asked the children the same question. The results are in the bottom half. Its fascinating to see how the children’s opinions have changed as they have learnt throughout the topic! What do you think?
Look at the fantastic pictures we drew. Our focus was steam.
Today we did a very interesting (and messy) experiment into if liquids are runny. We used our prediction skills to work out which liquid we thought the marble would run down the track fastest in. We were very surprised by the results!
Today, we were lucky enough to get to go and visit some local illustrators work. It was amazing seeing the design process behind it and even got to talk to Hannah Shaw and Martha Lightfoot. We really enjoyed it and came back with some fantastic ideas!
In DT we have been designing Roman Shoes with Mrs Jowers. Do you like our designs?!
On Tuesday we were lucky enough to get to visit the Corinium Museum as part of our topic. We learnt loads and even got to dress up in Roman style clothes! Thank you for all the parents who offered to help!
We had a fantastic time for Roald Dahl day, we had so many different characters, learned all about Roald Dahls life AND even watched some of the Matilda musical live!

What a busy time we are having! We’ve thoroughly been enjoying our Daily Mile, it’s been a great success and if we haven’t been able to do it for whatever reason then there’s been lots of groans! Thank you for all your support in this! We’re working hard on researching graffiti artists and have been looking at adverts in literacy, we’re getting very good at persuading!
Remember to keep reading at home as some of us are racing round the racetrack and practicing spellings!

Our topic in science this term is light and dark, we made the most of the beautiful sunshine today and investigated shadows. How do they get bigger? Why does this happen. It was great fun and the language the children were using was fantastic!

This morning we were most shocked to come in and find our tables had graffiti all over them! Luckily it was only Miss McLaughlin helping us start our topic! (It cleans off the tables, phew!) We had a fascinating debate over whether graffiti is art or vandalism. We all signed our name under one and gave our reason why. It will be really interesting to see if we change our minds! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and here’s to a great New Year!

We had a great time at the Christmas Fair today! We spent lots of money, rescued lots of teddies and even bought some of our mums and dads some amazing presents! Thank you very much to the PTFA for organising. We’re working hard on some christmas crafts here in Diamond class this week!

Today we were lucky enough to be invited to Quartz class to see all the amazing homework they had produced and they came to see all of ours. We looked at all of the things we had learnt about the Romans and there was some amazing knowledge!

We’re still really enjoying our Roman topic. We’ve learnt some Latin words and we are discovering why they wanted to invade Britain! We’re currently writing our own version of Escape from Pompeii and have got some fantastic ideas about it!

I hope you all had an enjoyable half term, the children have come back very excited to continue our Roman topic and have come back with a fantastic can do attitude.

We’ve produced some fantastic pieces of writing from the point of view of a teddy bear who came alive in our bedroom! Thank you for letting us bring them in as it really helped us become them. (Especially when Miss McLaughlin cast a spell and changed us into them!)

Welcome to Diamond class! We’ve had an excellent start to the week and have really got to know each other, we’ve settled well into the routine and have started some fab learning. We loved invading another class although it was pretty scary when ours was invaded! It started some excellent conversations about how it must feel to be invaded and how they would have reacted! Can you guess what our topic is!?
