Since 3rd class returned to school last month, after 3 months of at home learning, they were eager to get going again and to learn lots of new information. We started learning about procedural writing in literacy ✏️ As a whole class, we wrote a detailed procedure of how to make a paper aeroplane. Then, we followed the instructions to see if they made sense and if we could make an aeroplane from what we had written and of course tested the planes outside. ✈️ Later in the week, we wrote about how to make chocolate nests 🍫.

We celebrated Anti – Bullying month this and are now all feel very confident that we would recognise what bullying is, what we’d do if we saw it happening to others and how to deal with it if it ever happened to us. In maths we learned to tell the time – we spend a while exploring clocks and the hands and talking about how many seconds are in 1 minute, how many minutes in an hour, hours in a day etc. We soon got the hang of how the ‘to’ side and ‘past’...

Second and Fifth class decided to join together to celebrate Engineers Week on Wednesday and had lots of fun completing a STEM challenge. We worked together in small groups to try to build a structure that was strong and tall. We had to build using either a square or rectangular shape because we wanted to see if this would make any difference to how strong and tall our structures would be. Teamwork was also very important! We used plasticine and and small match sticks to create our structures. Check out some of our photographs below to see us in action!     We worked really well...
