Amazing Monarch Week

In the final week of term, the whole school covered the topic 'Amazing Monarchs' to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest reigning British monarch. Class 4 focused on Queen Victoria. We wrote a short biography of her life, created pencil portraits and also designed and made wooden photograph frames. We ended the week with dressing up as Kings and Queens and celebrated with afternoon tea. Make sure you take time to look at the display in the school corridor!

ICT

In ICT, we created powerpoints about The Solar System.

Science - Our Solar System

We went into the playground and created our Solar System by drawing circles to show the orbit around the sun.  Look at our pictures below.

On the 3rd March,  the whole school celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book character. Throughout the day,  we made a book mark for a whole school competition and at times we 'dropped everything and read'. 

Sports Relief

On Friday 18th March, the whole school ran at least a mile to raise money for Sports Relief. Class 3 and 4 ran together - all children running at least a mile and some many more!

London Residential

We had lots of fun in London. We enjoyed seeing the Lion King, dining at a burger bar, seeing all the London attractions and visiting Wembley.

Take a look at our photographs to see how much fun we had!
