Year 1 have had a very exciting week. On Wednesday, they missed school (much to their own delight) to go and watch 'Mary and the Witch's Flowersmiley at the cinema. The English they were doing also sounded good fun!laugh They were writing their own stories about a poor, lost toy just like in Toy Story! When finished, the stories will go in a real, published book for The Library! The classes very much enjoyed Maths, as they were learning and naming 2D shapes. Last, but not least for this exciting week, the year 1s were taught about how different animals cope in Winter. Did you ever know out of your tippy tiny mind that Arctic Foxes change the colour of their fur for Winter? I didn't!!enlightened.



Year 2 have been busy this week practicing their nativity.devil SPOILER ALERT: may include aliens.devil On Wednesday, they went to the cinema to watch a film part of film festival week. Moving on, in English they were reporters writing about Neil Armstrong's recruit to the moon.mail The year twos told us they really enjoyed the film, especially missing lessons.yes Cheekylaugh.



Year 3 have made their lovley sculptureslaugh! First they made them out of junk modeling (like cardboard boxes) then covered them in paper mache and mod rock. Finally they painted them to create animals or shapes. They did this to decorate the school. Their new book is SPY TOYScheeky, they seem to love it! They are going to Henley river to learn about how rivers work. Sadly it had to be postponed as they all had Covid-it comes every now and then. Also Year 3 have been learning about Christmas traditions. They have learnt about non religious and religious ways we celebrate the festive holidayangel!

This week year 5 have been extra busy. In maths they have been looking at division and multiplication. They have been reading Beowulf by Michael Mopurgo. In science they have had a very exciting lesson. They were pretending to be children from a small village in Kenya. They had to collect dirty water from leaking buckets. Between now and the end of term they will be designing a water purification system. Did you know 1 in 3 people don't have clean water and we use 150l of water each day. That's shockingsurprise. This makes us think how lucky we are. Lastly, they have been busy drawing Viking warriors.

We've have also been jazzing in music.  We've been writing really long letters as evacuees in English.

In topic we have moved on from WW1 to WW2 learning about Winston Churchill and what role he took in the war.
