Science Day

Here we are enjoying science day! We tried lots of cool experiments in class and in the hall. Thank you Miss Powell and the science ambassadors for teaching us.




Today we are using tags to add images to our webpages. We now know how to change the size of the images and also include hyperlinks to other pages. The pages are really starting to look fantastic!



Coastal Erosion

Today we learned about coastal erosion in geography and looked at the different stages which happen over time. We then showed these stages using modelling clay which was lots of fun! We will be writing an explanation text about it in English next week-come back to visit our page to see how we got on.


Coastal Erosion using modelling clay

During our Geography topics, 'Mountains and Coasts' we have been learning about the process of Coastal Erosion. In English, we are planning to write an explanation about how cliffs and rocks around the world are being destroyed by the waves.


We used modelling clay to represent the main stages of a cave, an arch and finally a stack.


Mastery maths

We experimented with digit cards to help us work out the problem systematically. Super work!



The children worked hard in PE today to learn new passing and receiving skills. Well done everybody.







Performance Poetry

We have loved performing our poetry about the sea this week! We watched lots of poets first to get some inspiration and then annotated our poems to help us consider how certain lines should be performed.

Performance Poetry in 4PW

We have been looking at writing our own metaphor poems about the sea. We began by reading ‘The Sea’ by James Reeves. We studied his use of metaphoric language and how it brings the description out in the poem.


The children planned their own poem and enjoyed performing them for the class. Well done to everyone for being brave enough to perform for the class.



Investigating water

As part of our 'Changing States' science topic, we completed some mini experiments to see how water can change state. We planned our own investigation using ice cubes to see how solids turn into a liquid. Using a kettle and metal tray we explored how a gas (water vapour) turns into a liquid by condensation.
