As part of our home learning, we were set the challenge of designing a piece of artwork to represent one of the 6 main biomes. Miss Bennett was very impressed with our fantastic creations!
Today in Juniper class we completed a number of fun activities for anti-bullying day, based around the theme ‘change starts with us’. In one activity, we said unkind, hurtful things to an apple and then, kind, positive things to another apple. We discussed how saying these unkind things made us feel sad and sorry for the apple. When we cut the apples open, the apple that we had said unkind things to was broken and bruised whereas the other apple was healthy. We immediately understood the impact that our words can have on people. The bruises and broken bits showed us what happens inside each one of us when somebody mistreats us with their words and actions.
Well done to all the children that made bridges as part of their STEM week homework. They all look fantastic! Thank you for all your hard work. A special congratulations to Max whose bride won a prize!
Yesterday Year 3 travelled back to the Stone Age and spent the day at Celtic Harmony. We had the opportunity to take part in lots of activities – our favourites included practising our hunting skills and attempting to create stable shelters. We used our Stone Age knowledge to answer lots of questions and learnt even more facts about life in Prehistoric times!
This week as part of our home learning we created some beautiful cave art sculptures. These are currently being displayed in our classroom.

We are so proud of the Roman shields that we made as part of our home learning. We can now really imagine what it was like to be a soldier in the Roman Army.
