Computing

The class have been researching all about the Romans on the Internet. They have remembered to use safe searching techniques and are using a child friendly version of Google called Kiddle.

The information that they find is being put into Google slides and will be used to create a non-chronological report on the Romans using Google Draw.

P.E

Trying to run a mile once a week has kept the children active and healthy at the start of this term. They have tried to see how many laps they can do in 15 minutes. The record so far is 32 laps!

The children have been improving their gymnastic skills in the hall. They have been balancing, rolling and travelling in a variety of ways. (More pictures to follow.)

R.E.

In class, the children have been learning how to find Book, Chapter and verse in the Bible. They had great fun seeing who could find a verse first and read what it said.

The children read the story of Peter and Andrew, two fishermen who gave up their nets to become the first Disciples. The children quickly drew their favourite posessions and wrote a few sentences about the best things about their weekend. They were then asked to 'give these up' by rubbing out their work, tearing it up or giving it away. It caused a lot of discussion and lots of cries of 'No!!!'

It was a great way for the children to see how the first Disciples gave up everything to follow Jesus.

Science

The Science Dome came to our school and they put on a great show, all about different states of matter. The children really enjoyed it and wrote some great pieces of work, retelling their experiences of the day.
