This week in maths we are been learning how to measure using meters and centimetre's. At the end of the week we put what we have learnt into practice.

Fire crew visit

Today we had the fire crew visit to make the Great Fire of London in Northaw.

During Design and Technology this term we have designed, made and evaluated our very own tudor houses. The firemen then came and they set them on fire. We talked about how come the fire spread so quickly. The firemen then answered our questions that we had written in English and gave us a presentation about fire safety.

We have then written letters to say thank you to them for coming to visit us.

What a fab day!

Learning about the Torah
Learning about the Torah

Religious Education

Spring Term 

In RE this term we have been learning about the value of courage through the story of Jonah and the Whale. We have also been learning about why the bible is a special book for Christians and why the Torah is a special book for Jewish people. We were lucky enough to have two Jewish visitors come and talk to us about the Torah, why it is special and how it should be looked after. The children made their own 'yads' (pointers which are used so that the Torah is not touched) and got the opportunity to ask questions about the Torah.  


The first week back was RE week. We have learnt about Harvest and how farmers crop our food that we eat. We looked at the artist Giuseppe who made faces using fruit. We then made our own faces using fruit. 

Uganda Day

On the 19th September we celebrated Uganda day. This was to introduce our link school which is in Uganda. We had lots of fun making flags, playing African drums and even some African dancing. 

Elf On The Shelf

In December we had a very own Elf on the Shelf arrive. He got up to all sorts of mischief. We wrote recounts of what he was up to everyday and predicted what we thought he might do the next day. 

Perform for all

On 27th September we had a company called “Perform to All” come and visit us. We went on an adventure to meet a witch and a dragon. It was fun and we really improved our acting skills.
