Halloween Dress Up!

We have been working hard designing and making our Antartic animals. First, we needed to learn the different techniques used to mold clay. We had lots of fun practicing pinching, pulling and smoothing our clay. Then we had a look at a local artist Paul Smith. We used his work as inspiration when designing our own sculptures. We labelled our designs with the techniques that we were going to use. After that, we had a try at recreating our designs! Finally, we evaluated our designs with what went well and what we would do next time. It was lots of fun!

We were very lucky to have a visit from the CSI this afternoon! Chris talked to us about the role of the emergency services and discussed each uniform so we know who to approach if we are in trouble. Chris then told us all about the role of a Crime Scene Investigator and we did some investigating ourselves! We were shown how a special mold is created to set footprints and even got to set our own fingerprints to take home. We loved using the camera to take pictures of one another in mini police uniforms. What a fantastic afternoon! Thank you Chris smiley


This week we have been reading non-fiction texts about penguins. We have learnt lots of fun facts and enjoyed writing these down. Have a look at our lovely writing and drawing!

R.E- What stories are special?

This half term in R.E we have been learning about special stories. First we had a think about stories that are special to us and why. Then we learnt about the Bible and why this is special to Christians. After that, we read about the Qur'an and learnt about the different ways Muslims keep their special book safe.

Have a look around our lovely classroom! Can you spot your first challenge?
