Willow - our years three and four
Courage is our Christian value this term.
In class we shared the story of 'The Brave Little Parrot' and discussed the selfless way in which the parrot acted. Click here to hear more. This story comes from Buddhism and teaches the need for resilience and courage in the face of a seemingly impossible task.
We have also considered how Bible stories can inspire people. The story of David and Goliath has helped us to understand that for Christians, God's love and support provides guidance and helps us to be courageus when life is difficult.
Our science topic has been sound and we have been able to explore different ways of creating sound, experimenting with pitch and volume and learning about the frequency and amplitude of sound waves.
We made our own musical instruments and even had our very own one man band!
Anglo Saxon burials

Rangoli patterns are traditionally used to welcome the goddess Lakshmi into Hindu homes during Diwali.
We had a go at creating our own Rangoli patterns using rice, pasta and lentils. Creating our patterns provided us with an opportunity to explore symmetry and to develop our understanding of this mathematical concept.
