Our learning journey this half term...
 
How can you bring your drawings to life? This term, children will bring their drawings to life by developing their art skills in drawing, sculpture and animation. At the end of the term, children will put on an exhibition showing off their artwork which will take inspiration from our key text, "James and the Giant Peach".
 
Class 4 will develop their reasoning skills and will begin the term by looking at fractions. Throughout the Summer term, children will apply their operation skills to solve problems. They will also encounter coordinates later in the term.

 The focus for RE this term is Easter and the children will be looking at the Resurrection. “The church teaches that the birth of Christ is the most significant event in history and the death and resurrection is the reason he was born.”
The lovely life caravan 
 
On March the 8th and 9th Andy from the life education center came in and talked to us about the human body and teeth in the life caravan. There was a very funny giraffe called Harold and the children were very pleased to meet him!
