Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Sarginson, Mrs Hill or Mrs Dixon

This week we have been trying to develop our sentence structure and use more exciting adjectives in our writing. Our new English book is called The House Held up by Trees and tells the story of what happens to the old man's beloved house and garden. To inspire us we looked at lots of different leaves and challenged ourselves to use expanded noun phrases in our work! We will use these to write a newspaper article telling the world about this incredible house.
In Science this week we investigated the different properties of objects and classified them using the terms bend, twist, squeeze and squash. We investigated rode, socks, rulers and even playdough!
in Art this week we have been creating portraits based on Giuseppe Archimboldo who used fruits and vegetables to create his paintings. This is what we came up with!
How did the first flight change the world?
In history, we are learning about who created the first aeroplane, when the first flight was and how it has changed our lives today. Throughout the term, the children will get the opportunity to research the Wright Brothers, who are responsible for the first flight and look at maps to identify where it took place. We will be looking at the similarities and differences between planes in the 1900s and the planes we see now, as well as constructing an aviation history timeline.
Use of every day materials
Our science lessons will be keeping us very busy this half term, we will be exploring different objects to identify the material it is made out of. The children will also identify how we use these materials every day and classify objects into the correct group. We will also identify why materials are used for specific reasons and discuss what they think may happen if we changed the material.
In English we have been looking at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We put ourselves in the roles of the characters in the story and thought about what we Goldilocks and the Bears would say to each other if they met for the first time since Goldilocks broke into their house, ate their porridge, broke Baby Bear's chair AND slept in Baby Bear's bed. We acted out what we thought would happen to the rest of the class.
We had a special visitor come into school to perform an amazing science show for us! He taught us all about working scientifically and how to conduct a fair test. We carried out some experiments investigating friction, forces and even chemical reactions by combining mentos with coca-cola. It went EVERYWHERE!
