Week 28th November-2nd December 2022
What a busy but lovely week the children have had. They have been fascinated with the way that the eggs have reacted to different liquids and have drawn their conclusions.
In French, the children wrote their own postcards in French which included the date of their birthday and in Maths they have come to the end of their perimeter unit. Children drew some very impressive rectilinear shapes with a given perimeter.
For the concluding part of their RE unit, the children planned their own collective worship and celebrated by walking into the light which we represented through torchlight. This was a symbol of their commitment to being the best they can be.
Based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the children have written their own invention room chapter. The children revealed wonderful imagination, alongside good use of different writing lenses.
Week 21st-25th November 2022
What great experiences the children have had this week. At the start of the week, ten children visited St Osmund’s Middle school for an ICT morning where they learned how to program small machines. They learned a lot and were able to share information with the others back at school.
Meanwhile, the children at school were being archaeologists and seeking answers from the Sutton Hoo burial findings.
All took part in a Science investigation on Monday afternoon and are keen observers this week. They are looking carefully to see the impact different liquids are having on egg shells.
Fun was had in Forest school’s sessions on Wednesday, with children learning how to light and safely heat milk, using the fire. 
Week 14th-18th November 2022
The Year 4’s enjoyed designing and making their golden ticket and some were able to join their families for a French breakfast.
There was some great home learning; with one child choosing to share her knowledge of the Anglo Saxons with a puppet show. Thank you for the slideshows, the illustrations and the fun facts. 
Week 7th-11th November 2022
The year 4’s loved debating on whether or not Guy Fawkes should continue carrying the blame for the 1605 plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament. They used their previous learned knowledge to form the debate and considered the validity of the sources.
In Forest Schools, the children built a fire and learned to light it. They also made a clay animal with natural resources. A good time was had by all.
