At the end of each unit in Maths we will be completing an end of unit task to show that we have mastered the concepts taught throughout the unit. This time the task was to choose one of the areas of learning and create a game to test your skills. I was so impressed with the quality of the games produced! Some really were outstanding. Here are pictures of some of the games produced. Well done Mandela class!
Today we tested our resilience and systematic approach to problem solving but undertaking this investigation:
It was tricky, however one pair managed to find one solution in just over 10mins. It took some people 45 minutes! We were all busy for the whole lesson as there were several possible solutions.

We had a fantastic trip to the Science Museum. There was so much to see and explore! However we were having so much fun we didn't take many pictures!! Here are a few:
In Science we are studying 'Classifying Critters' - all about classifying living things into the 5 kingdoms. So far we have found out about Plants, Animals and Bacteria and today we learnt about Fungi. We explored the most recognised form of fungi - the mushroom! Mrs Matthews brought in lots of different types of mushrooms for us to draw and look at. Afterwards Ms Rowe cooked them so we could all have a taste. There were mixed reactions - but it was a fun morning :-)
Parents - you would be surprised how many children enjoyed eating mushrooms!!

Today we went to Saxmundham Free school to take part in their French cafe. We were able to practise our French and order food. It was all delicious and we had a great morning. We are all excited about high school French lessons now!!
We have now painted our completed Henry Moore style abstract sculptures and we are very pleased with the results!
See what you think!
Today was Red, White and Blue day and our class had a great time with Miss Bewley finding out more about WW1. In the afternoon all of Key Stage 2 had a fantastic street party celebrating 100 years since the end of WW1. It was great to see the children sharing food, singing songs and getting along together 😊
This week in Literacy we have been working really hard to produce our own display boards, with each group focusing on a different aspect of Nelson Mandela's life. We worked really well to independently organise our groups and work together to create an informative board, so visitors to our classroom can learn more about the great man himself! Fantastic work!!
The finished display boards:

Today we have been working on our Art unit based on 3D artwork. We have been looking at the work of Henry Moore, a sculpture and painter, who has produced to brilliant semi-abstract sculptures of people, including the 'Reclining Man' and 'Mother and Child'. Today we responded to his work by creating our own clay reclining figure sculptures. Watch this space for the finished sculptures.....
