WINNERS - Attendance Movie Afternoon
A huge well done to 2Bi for having the best attendance from last half term. We earned a movie afternoon where we watched Peter Rabbit and enjoyed some delicious popcorn.
Design Technology - Making a Chair for Baby Bear
As part of our topic 'Once upon a Time' we have been looking at the storybook Goldilocks and Just the One Bear. We were given the challenge of designing a chair for Baby Bear that was nice and strong so it would not fall over or break. We started off by designing our chair and thought about what materials and equipment we needed to help us make it. After that we worked with a partner to create our chair - this was a very fun afternoon!!
The final stages of our challenge were to test to see if Baby Bear sat on the chair without it breaking or falling over and to evaluate our product looking at what worked well and what we could improve next time.

Well done to Jade the champion egg roller for winning 1st prize and also to Sophie for coming 2nd place.
Design Technology - Animal Hand Puppets
As part of our 'Go Wild' topic and to end our topic we have created our own animal hand puppets. We started off by drawing our design so we knew what we wanted the end product to look like. We then created a prototype of our hand puppet using paper and our challenge was to try and make it big enough to fit our hand.
The final stage was to make our animal hand puppet which we made out of felt and other materials and we stitched it toegther using a needle and thread.
A huge thank you to all the adults who gave up their time to come and support the children. We hope you enjoyed your morning working with the children.

Day of the Dead Celebration
This week as part of our 'Let There be Light' topic we have been looking at 'The Day of the Dead' Celebration. We have learnt so much about this celebration and to end our week we have created our own sugar skull masks. When designing our masks we tried to make them symmetrical as this is what we have been learning in maths this week.

P.E - Benchball
This half term in our P.E sessions with Mr Blackmore we have been learning how to play benchball. We have really enjoyed playing as part of a team, encouraging and praising each other and also practising our technique of throwing and catching the ball.
Remembering 100 years - World War 1
This week all of our learning has been about World War 1 as this year it has been 100 years since the war ended. To pay our respects to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our country we each made a poppy and we create a class wreath. Some of us also painted a poppy design onto a pebble and we created a memorial garden.

REAL P.E is a new scheme which is being introduced to our school to develop agility, balance and coordination. For the last few weeks we have been pirates practising a one leg static balance and trying to keep that balance whilst our pirate crew balance as many different things on us as they can.
Art and Design - Roy Lichtenstien Style Portraits
This half term we have been looking at the artist Roy Lichtenstein and how he was famous for his dotty pop art paintings of everyday objects. We have created our own portrait paintings in the style of Roy Lichtenstein using cotton buds to create the dotty effect.
