Key Stage 2 base

In Science we planted radishes and peas. We looked after them inside until they were big enough then planted them outside  We made a plant diary to record the growth of their plants and observe how they changed.

The children had a fantastic Sports Day this year and took part in a range of exciting games. Everyone had lots of fun and all the children enjoyed an ice pop after all their hard work. 

In our topic work we learned all about rainforests.  We know where rainforests are in the world and what their features are.  

We spent lots of time learning about the different layers of the rainforest, which animals live in each layer and why.

We have also written some fantastic descriptions of African animals in our literacy topic. 

In P.E., the children completed a range of activities which were organised by a specialist PE Teacher from Dyke House School. They really enjoyed these lessons, had lots of fun with all the games and developed their skills. 

World Book Day 2021

The Lion Hunt

We enjoyed sharing 'We're Going on a Lion Hunt' in Literacy and were able to make up our own actions to go with the story. This helped us to memorise some of the words.  We also created amazing story maps to help us sequence and write a retell of the story.  

Snowmen Writing ICT Skills

In Literacy we completed some fantastic writing about some friendly snowmen.  We then used the skills we have been learning in computing to type our work onto these lovely snowflake templates..

We had a great time at our Christmas party.  We played lots of games, ate some party food and decorated Christmas biscuits.  We even had a visit from Santa!
