Click on start creating. 

Accelerated reader: Children can still access AR. Please use the website below and continue to read and quiz yourself after finishing their book. I advise that if children are reading a book from home then to check it is on AR first. Chn will know how to do this.

French

French 1
In French we have been learning what to say in a cafe. We took it in turns to be the people visiting the cafe and the waiter. We look forward to doing this again next week and getting more confident with the vocabulary- we can't talk in English!

We learnt a persuasive letter written to DIY SOS to help a family whose house had been devastated by a flood. We put actions to the words and used lots of expression.

Solid, Liquid or Gas?

We have started our exciting topic on Materials. We explored what we thought solids, liquids and gases were and came up with our own definitions. However, we were baffled by sand and sugar- they pour! We realised that sand and sugar are solids because they are made up of lots of small solids. 

 

Our favourite bit was exploring the cornflour experiment.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/0/22880407 (link below)

Have a go at home!

Roman Day!

On Friday 23rd February, we had a roman man come in to visit year 3 and 4!

To start the day, we looked at artifacts that the Britons used, before the Romans invaded. Then we looked at both Briton and Roman weapons, as well as looking at Roman artifacts and the roman ways of life . After lunch, the really exciting part of day happened.. We trained for battle! We even got to attack some rather unfortunate parents!

Polite reminder: we have our Roman day THIS FRIDAY (23rd Feb), children need to bring in their slips and any contributions. We will be dressing up as Britons- this can simply be a baggy t-shirt tied at the waist. Thank you! We are all very excited!
