Autumn Term 2019

Take a look at our learning this term...

Uganda Day

As part of our learning about Uganda, we had a workshop from ‘Save the Children’ where we learnt about the work the charity does in Uganda.

This was followed by a noisy, but enjoyable workshop on African drumming.

Science

In science, we are taking part in a project that launches a weather balloon into the atmosphere. As part of this project, we learnt about density and air pressure. We did experiments in water to help us understand these concepts.

Summer Term 2019

We were privileged to have a special visitor from the Jewish community come and talk to the us during assembly. His name was Reynold Rosenberg and he was from the Whisper Project. During the assembly, he told the us the ‘Passover’ Bible story and explained why it is important in the Jewish faith. Following on from this, we had a workshop where we discussed the Hebrew people’s exodus from Egypt and how God dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai. As part of this session, we were able to try Matzah (unrisen bread eaten during the Passover festival), and had lots of our questions about Jewish beliefs and customs answered.  

Quicksticks hockey tournament 

Children from our class represented our school in a Quicksticks hockey tournament. The standard was very high, but we still enjoyed ourselves. After a fun-filled and energetic afternoon, we found ourselves in the semi-final and we eventually finished third.
