Our new topic this term is North America - please do have a look at the planning for this term over on the Curriculum by Class page of the website.
We will be doing lots of rehearsals ready for our summer production that we can't wait to perform to everyone, you should have received the letter about which part the children are playing and their lines, please ensure they are practicing their lines to ensure rehearsals run smoothly - any questions please get in touch via the office.

This week, the Year 6 children sat their SATs tests to experience what it feels like and to celebrate all of the learning they have done at primary school. To ensure they were ready, they enjoyed a tasty breakfast that they all devoured very quickly! Well done to everyone, they all did so well and enjoyed the experience :)
This term we are doing Athletics in PE and today some of the children led their peers and set up a carousel of activities. These helped the children to practice their throwing, catching, aiming, running and team skills. We also made sure we had lots of water and time in the shade too!
We have been busy gardening this week! A massive thanks to Porton Pets and Mrs Maher for donating all the wonderful plants! We have planted strawberries, tomatoes, sweet peas, and lots of lovely flowers that will attract all the bees and butterflies!
During our History and Geography lessons this year, we have been doing lots of learning about The Vikings! This term in our Science lessons, we are learning how The Vikings used to make things with the natural resources they had. Take a look at the pictures below of the children making butter using only cream and arm power and making glue using milk and vinegar.
In our English lessons, we have been learning the William Shakespeare play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. For our art lesson this week, we learnt about the artist and poet William Blake and focused on his interpretation of the play through his art work. We then had a go at recreating his painting and used water colours to bring it to life! Take a look at the pictures above :)
Terms 3 and 4
It is so lovely to see everyone, we've missed you!
This week in science, we experimented with air resistance and made our very own parachutes! (see above). We used multi-link as our parachuter and explored how different parachutes fall to the ground. We found that the bigger the surface area of the parachute, the more air resistance and therefore a slower descend to the ground!
We also found out that objects with the same mass and shape fall to the ground at the same time! If you drop a tennis ball and a cricket ball (the cricket ball is 3 TIMES heavier then the tennis ball) at the same time, they will land on the ground at the same time regardless of its mass! This is because there is the same amount of air resistance acting against them as they are the same shape - mind boggling!!
