This page will keep you up to date with our learning.

 

 

To mark the fact that we have finished our SATs, we used our measuring skills to make celebration drinks. We mixed different juices and topped them off with fresh fruit - delicious!

Farm News!

Today Farmer Pete was able to show us a two minute old calf! We were able to see the mother cow licking her calf dry. We are going to be naming the calf and we are busy thinking of lots more questions about life on the farm.

We had a video message from our FaceTime a Farmer, Pete, who asked us to name two of his week old lambs. We decided on the names Emily and Oreo.
Today we had our first ‘FaceTime a Farmer’ session. Pete Webster is a dairy farmer in Lancashire and today we introduced ourselves to one another and the children asked questions about the farm. We’re looking forward to future sessions and finding out lots more first hand information about life on the farm!

Welcome to the Summer Term!

This term our first topic is 'The Nature of Life.' We will be exploring the lives of plants and animals, thinking about life cycles and food chains. We have lots of exciting activities planned!

Thank you to all those of you who came to our SATs meeting on Thursday.

Here is the powerpoint for anyone who would like a refresher or was not able to make the session.

We went to Cambridge as part of our topic, People Of The Past. We visited the Scott Polar Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
The ceilings at the Scott Polar Museum are amazing!

At the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology we looked at lots of fascinating artefacts from all around the world. We made careful drawings which we placed on a world map.

We enjoyed reading Sector 7 by David Weisner and we made our own clouds in a jar.

We have been finding out about what happens when materials are heated and cooled so we heated wax to make designs on fabric. We combined our batik dragon scales to make a snow dragon.

We have been loving reading The Snow Dragon by Vivian French and it has inspired some great writing and some fabulous dragon models made as part of our homework.

Happy New Year!

2.10.18

We had a great trip to Knowles Transport in Wimblington. The children looked around the yard, investigated the warehouse and had the chance to look at all the different vehicles that operate there. We went into the office and found out about the way that orders are tracked and we could see the location of individual lorries on a map. We looked at the amazing collection of vintage vehicles including the only working gas turbine lorry in the world.

The whole team at Knowles were brilliant at showing and explaining. It was a very memorable day!

We are finding out about special places for Christians so we went to visit Chatteris Parish Church. Rev Wendy showed us around and we spent time drawing interesting details.

 

24.9.18

This week we planned the Macmillan Coffee morning. We made flap jack and chocolate crispy cakes and we practised songs and poems to perform at the coffee morning.

We were delighted that so many people came and we raised an amazing £420 which we counted ourselves.

We read the poem 'Inside of Me' by John Agard and this gave us the idea of making our organs using food!

...jelly cauliflower brain ... squashy, slimy sausage intestine, throbbly red pepper heart!

We explored our senses by carrying out an experiment to see whether we can taste foods if we cannot smell them.

It was harder to guess the flavour of crisps if we couldn't smell them.

We turned ourselves into super heroes and shared what we already know about the human body and how to keep our body healthy.
