Class 3 have been doing some fantastic multiplication and division work over the past couple of weeks. 

They were rewarded today with some times table board games.  They had to answer division and multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 8x tables.  

Keep up the good work!

Clay…

Class 3 have been making pots out of clay, in the style of Bernard Leach.    In 1920, Bernard Leach established a pottery studio in Cornwall and worked hard at his craft to become a very well-known and influential artist.  I think they look great.  Well done everyone!

Roses for Year 4

We used drama and role-play to act out the War of the Roses. We belonged to either the House of York or the House of Lancaster.
The War of the Roses lasted from 1455 to 1485.
The Houses of York and Lancaster fought over who should be the King.
In the end, Henry VII won and married Elizabeth of York.

 

We also used different sources to find out historical facts about Tudor Monarchs. We used primary sources (portraits, accounts of the time) as well as secondary sources (books, IPADs). We presented our research as a group. We discussed “bias” in the way the monarchs were painted in their portraits and in some of the primary accounts.
Did you know that Edward VI was only king for 6 years?
Did you know that Elizabeth I gave nicknames to her favourite people?

Scarborough

Class 2 enjoyed a wonderful visit to Scarborough on Monday 17th July. They played on the beach, paddled in the sea, ate ice cream and visited the Sealife Centre! All the children were impeccably behaved.
