Poetry is Year 3/4’s first English unit this term and they have been looking at different Blitz Poetry. They generated vocabulary about the Blitz, edited and improved their word choices and combined sentence strips to create a group poem.
Finally, they wrote and performed their own Blitz poem.
Children from different year groups have been working hard to create a fabulous hoarding panel that will be used whilst building work takes place during construction of the new foot-bridge over Clive Sullivan Way. Look at the link below to see how they did it…
Miss Jeffrey and Mrs Hebden are so very impressed with the progress that has been made by our pupils during their violin lessons. They have worked brilliantly with their specialist teachers Mr Smalley and Mrs England to learn songs, notes and techniques! Take a look…
Year 3/4 had a great time on their trips to Tropical World. They got to see some rainforest animals in real life and got to experience the climate of the rainforest. It was very hot and humid!
Year 3 and 4 have been learning about French Artist Henri Rousseau.
They have looked at his famous art pieces and used these as inspiration for their own art.
We think they look fabulous!
Deep in the Y3/4 rainforest, the pupils were treated to a visit from the very experienced and knowledgable Zoo Lab! We had a wonderful day, learning about some of the animals that can be found in the different layers of the rainforest.
We met tallulah the five year old tarantula that can fire out her hairs as a weapon and method of self defence ( needless to say we didn’t handle her) …
Millie the millipede who helps create healthy soil by eating the rotting leaves and fruits from the forest floor….
The geko that can shed it’s tail if captured by a predator….
Prince the Python that flexes his jaws and swallows his prey whole (gulp!)…
Miss Jeffrey’s class clearly have the ‘green – fingered’ touch as their potato plants are coming along very nicely! We can not say the same for Mrs Hebden’s however!! Perhaps we should seek advice from the gardeners amongst our families as to how we might improve our chances of winning the potato growing competition! All advice welcome!!!
During the introductory week, we met the teachers that will be teaching us the Violin for ten weeks, Mr Smalley and Mrs England. We learned a little about the instrument and enjoyed listening to a demonstration from these very skilful players.

We loved our first lesson, as we learned how to handle the instrument and found out more about the violin. We learned how to strum and pluck and enjoyed performing in unison during our very first lesson! We felt so proud of ourselves!
