We have been so impressed, but not surprised, at not only the amazing learning you have been doing at home but also the creative ways you have been doing it, and wanted to celebrate this with a weekly ‘Celebration Gallery’. Please find below a collection of our ‘Works of Art’.

Well done Jamie Clark for producing an amazing entry and being our winner.

The winner of the competition was Logan! I particularly liked the night vision element to this design.

We have had some fantastic reasoning within our Maths topic of place value within 50 this week. Here is a clip of Elijah using some super maths vocab when comparing and ordering 3 numbers. 
World Book Day
On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day virtually as a class. We all dressed up as our favourite characters from our favourite books and shared what we loved to read. Here are some of the amazing competition entries we have had so far for our story in a box competition. I am looking forward to seeing more of the entries that may come through.
Evie - Esme the Emerald Fairy
Olivia - The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Elijah - I saw anaconda
Oliver - Stick man
Star Work - Week beginning 22.02.21
After a fantastic history live lesson  which was led by the children on Tuesday, Billy produced this amazing castle that he thought Queen Elizabeth I might have lived or stayed in. We found out that she liked to visit many castles and grand houses. We have completed lots of fact files and resources to give to the historian Jeff Hanks who had lost all of his information about Queen Elizabeth I at the London History Museum. 
Oliver produced this week some amazing Science work where we have been looking at observing animals as an introuduction to our new Science topic. He even was able to use his nocturnal camera to capture some animals at night!
