I hope you appreciated the car park models the children brought home on Friday. This was the final product in a 6 week period of learning. We looked at how structures in school remained stable, examined materials, designed our car park and practised how we could join materials together before, this week, making the final product. Our thought was always, how could we join features to make it stable?
Thank you for all the materials you sent it. We all loved this unit, but we are most definitely looking forward to having our classrooms free of cardboard very soon!

Lots of practical work, paired work, worksheet challenges and writing in maths book.
So much enthusiasm for learning, I couldn't decide what to leave out. So it's a bumper maths screen roll today.
The children are enjoying learning about the life of William Shakespeare, prior to us reading a book based on one of his plays in a few weeks' time. We are looking forward to their information text writing next week.
We began our topic on plants by using our magnifying glasses and carefully observing what fruit look like inside. We saw different size seeds and a variety of coloured flesh. First, we draw and described what we could see. Secondly, we painted fruit in the style of Andy Warhol. Art and science in one lesson - fantastic ! Thank you Miss O'Reilly for planning 2 great lessons.
