Happy Holidays

I hope you are all enjoying the start to your holidays.  We have had such a busy term, so it is important that you make sure you take time to rest, relax and, most importantly, have fun!  Remember all our discussions about staying safe – wherever you are.

I hope you will make some time to write a book review over the holidays; hopefully they will publish on the blog this time, and we can share a range of interesting books which we have enjoyed reading.

Our topic after Easter will be Romans vs Celts.  I am really looking forward to learning lots with you all.

See you on Tuesday 18th April.

Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot

 

What a busy afternoon you have had researching facts about an event from the past which has shaped our lives today.  Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot is a really interesting event, which we remember every November.  Can you share some of your most fascinating facts with us?

Happy half term!

What a fantastic half term we have had!  You have all worked so hard, and there has been lots of wonderful learning going on in class. Well done!

 

I hope you enjoy your week off, and look forward to hearing all your news of what you have been up to when we go back to school.

 

Remember all the different ways we have looked at our spellings.  They are definitely working; I have really noticed how much your spellings are improving all the time.  Think of our funny mnemonics, the way we have broken down words, the words we have found inside our spellings (like dig in digital) and the meanings of the words.  Don’t forget all these strategies when you are looking at your homework spellings.

 

We have had a really great first week looking at time on analogue clocks, and converting hours to minutes and minutes to seconds.  We’ll be continuing with this after half term, so do try hard to keep telling the time, and getting even better at this skill while you are off.

 

Have a safe and exciting week, and look forward to seeing you all on Monday 20th February.

 

Mrs Lynn 😊

We have been learning all about the Lost Thing.  Can you describe what happened to the Lost Thing after you delivered it to the Department of Things?

Look at our Projects!

It’s sometimes hard to find time to share all the fabulous projects, but here are some which we have enjoyed so far …..

Sam had lots of fascinating facts in his project.

 

Freddie designed and made his own Norfolk Wherry – fantastic!

 

Joel shared lots of creativity … with a collage scene, a new creature and lots of fantastic facts.

 

Joshua used his imagination to come up with some weird and wonderful new creatures.

 

Keiran used his creativity to produce a Broads scene!  Some of us were hoping there was still some chocolate in the box!

 

Tallulah created a game, hiding facts in a balloon which we burst to then complete her mini-beast board. Brilliant!

 

We would love to know what you think!

Happy New Year!

What a fantastic start to our new term we have had!

Our new topic is Weird and Wonderful, and we enjoyed using the ipads and some books from the library to research some key inventions and discoveries which have impacted our lives today.  Putting some of these on a timeline on Friday afternoon showed just how long ago some of our essentials were first realised.  Can anyone remember who first invented paper?  or the wheel?

A very mysterious letter arrived on Friday from The Department of Things, Bits and Bobs, and I think we will have another busy week ahead trying to solve the mystery of the lost Thing ….. your Missing posters are fabulous, and I shall be putting these on display; hopefully they will help us in our quest to find the Thing.

Looking forward to a great week ahead!

Our busy run-up to the holidays!

I hope you have all had a fun and relaxing weekend, and feel rested and ready for our busy week in school.

Tomorrow we will be heading to the cinema, so remember to bring a warm coat.  As I said last week, you can also bring a small snack with you.

Tuesday is our Christmas fayre after school, so if any of you would like to help run our stall please ask your parents ….. it would be fabulous to have some help with the biscuit decorating!

Christmas lunch on Wednesday will be the only hot meal – I do hope lots of you will be enjoying it; all the staff will – I’m sure it will be delicious!

We have so much to fit in – I can’t wait!

See you all in the morning.

Eggstraordinary Eggsperiments!

We had fun looking at the effect of the different liquids on our egg shells, and concluded that water and milk are definitely the best drinks for our teeth!  Have a look at us checking the eggs ……. maple-31-10-16

Happy Half Term!

A huge well done to you all for a fabulous half term.  We have all done so much learning ….. just think about all the work you have done!  Finding so many new ways to do addition, subtraction and multiplication – and what a great week we had working on our times tables!

You have written your own fairytales and kennings – and, to top it all off, your own storybook!

Can you remember the music from Peter and the Wolf?  Goodness me, we have been busy!

Not to forget all the interesting facts we learned about digestion and teeth; I wonder how our eggs will be looking when we go back to school.

Our new topic after half term will be The Norfolk Broads, so it would be lovely if you have any time to start thinking about all the beautiful wildlife we are lucky enough to have around us.

The important thing though is that you have a very happy and safe half term, and I look forward to seeing you back on Monday 31st October.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
