Labeling a car.

Our topic this term is Journeys and Transport. We have been learning all about different transport and where we might go. As part of our Literacy lesson this week, we worked in groups to use our phonics to label a car.


We have been patiently waiting for our five hungry caterpillars to turn into Butterflies. During our topic session last term we learnt all about the lifecycle of a butterfly. The children were really excited as the first 2 butterflies made their appearance. After drying out, and getting use to their wings they were ready to be released in the garden.

British Science Week

Our challenge was to make a water balloon survive a one story drop. We used our team work skills to construct a structure to protect our water balloon for when it was dropped. Here's how we got on!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!!!

We had loads of fun creating fireworks with powder paints, water and big brushes.

Linked to our topic we have been looking at fruits and vegetables that are ready for harvesting in Autumn. We picked apples from the school garden.
