Beast Creator Memorable Experience

We drew detailed sketches of insects, carved insect outlines into soap and watched the movie ‘A Bug’s Life’. What did you enjoy most? What would you like to learn in this topic? Do you have any good ideas for projects to do during independence time?


Mad Science

Today we had an exciting assembly with Jupiter Jack from Mad Science! He did some amazing experiments and we all had lots of fun and learnt some new scientific facts!

Maths practise

This week in our Maths lessons we have been busy going over some key areas of our maths learning to revise our skills! So far we have looked at division, multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000 and today we worked in our co-operative groups on some fun word problems!

We really enjoyed writing out instructions and solving the problems together….

Youth Chinese Test

In Mandarin lessons, we have been working on a set of 80 Chinese words in preparation for the Youth Chinese Test, which will take place on Tuesday 5th June.
Please revise at school and at home to really increase your chances of passing the test. Remember: if you pass, it will mean that you can get Level 2 in Year 6 which will be halfway to a GCSE!
