Platinum Jubilee Celebrations


We had a very fun time in school learning about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and taking part in different activities.  Here are some pictures.  We even met the Queen (well….sort of!) and presented her with flowers we had made!

Bug Hotels


As part of our ‘Into the Wild’ topic, we designed and made bug hotels from recycled materials.  We had a lot of fun making them!

Russian Blue (Cats) Page Spreads


The cats in ‘Varjak Paw’ are based on the breed called Russian Blues.  We completed research about them and then created these fantastic double-page spreads in our English books.  Everyone worked really hard on them and created some work to feel really proud of.  Click on a picture to see a larger version.  

Varjak Paw Cat News Reports



We had a lot of fun writing and recording our news reports based on the book ‘Varjak Paw’.

Dreams and Ambitions


As part of our dreams and ambitions week, we came to school dressed as our dream job.  Do any of these careers take your fancy?



We had a very exciting afternoon when visited by some wonderful wild creatures.  We found out a lot and some of the expressions on the faces here are priceless!

Enjoy our Class Assembly!

The Vikings are coming!


We had a lot of fun using air-drying clay to make Viking heads.  It was very important to join the pieces of clay and blend together so that it dried as one piece.  They look fantastic!  Can you find yours?

Wonderful World Art and Poetry


As part of our work in RE at the start of Term 3, the children created some lovely poems about what they would like to see in a Wonderful World, creating a watercolour artwork to go with it.  Click on these smaller images to get a better look.  Super work everyone!


Christmas Card Fun!


We had a lovely afternoon making our Christmas cards!  Take a look here, and remember you can click or tap on a picture to see a larger version!



Special Visitors!


We had two very special visitors come into the classroom recently… Woody and Rex (our lovely school guinea pigs).  Everyone was very excited to see them, but remained very calm so they weren’t scared.  We hope they will come back to visit us again soon!



Claude display


Look at this great display of work that is in the corridor outside the year four classrooms!  Everyone worked hard to make a beautiful neat copy of their story based on the Claude series of books.

Coast to Coast Art

As part of our topic Coast to Coast we created some collages using tissue paper and sugar paper.  We did pencil sketches beforehand and used it for inspiration and ideas.  Everyone worked hard and had a lot of fun!  Can you find yours? (Click on a picture to see a larger version).
