A few important reminders...
Just like last year, the children are expected to choose a selection of different activities from the Homework "menu". We would like the children to complete at least one piece of homework every two weeks. As well as this, we expect the children to:

On Wednesday 19th September we went to see the River Monster on the River Soar near the Rally. We found out about the problem of plastic pollution in our waterways, and we even played a game to help find out about recycling. To help solve the plastic pollution problem, it is always helpful to remember the three Rs:
Reduce - Re-use - Recycle
We went "on safari" in the school playground to investigate how many different habitats we could find. The results were amazing... Can you work what types of creatures we found in these habitats?
How do you know?
Jub and The Witch
Can you imagine what Jub and The Witch, the two characters from our story "The Lost Happy Endings", might be saying to each other? We acted out the moment when The Witch stole the sack from Jub in the middle of the creepy forest. What do you think their conversation might have been?
As part of our History this term, we have been learning about the Romans, and especially the Roman Army. We have made our own shields, and thought you might like to see them...
WORLD BOOK DAY!
On Thursday 7th March we celebrated World Book Day, by dressing as some of our favourite characters from stories, and bringing some of our favourite books from home to share with our class. We hope you like our costumes! Can you guess which characters we dressed as?
Red Nose Day!!!
Friday 15th March
What a brilliant day....wearing red outfits, wearing silly noses (!!!) and enjoying a fantastic cake sale...great fun for everyone!
Water water everywhere!
On Tuesday 21st May, we spent the day finding out all about canals and rivers. We had two visitors from the Canals and Riverside Trust, and we found out about water safety, how canals were built, how locks work and about canal boats (narrow boats). In the afternoon, we went to explore the Grand Union Canal and River Soar, investigating the different features of these two waterways, and looking at different habitats along the way. What a super day!
