Sizzling Savannah Mud Huts


After Christmas, we launched our topic with some clues as to what our topic would be. One of the clues we had was mud  huts. We really enjoyed making these - it was very messy but really fun! 

Claude in the City

This half term we have been reading an exciting story called 'Claude in the City' which is a story about a dog who visits a city and goes on an adventure with his trusty friend Sir Bobblysock. The characters visited all sorts of locations including an art Gallery! Below is a selection of photos from our brilliant day visiting the Outwoods School Gallery. We looked at paintings and sculptures and even had time for a trip to the cafe! We had a brilliant time and cannot wait to write all about our own adventure.




Outdoor Maths



We took our maths lesson outside and had to search the playground for calculations which involved adding and subtracting multiples of ten with a two-digit number. It was great fun and we worked really hard!

Music Trip to Warwick


Off we went to Warwick to take part in an amazing music concert! We were so excited to go and enjoyed singing the very catchy songs which had actions to go with them. 

Some of us even got picked to answer a few questions on camera. We were a little nervous about it but we did our school proud. 

Using the Headphones

In our English lesson we decided to use the headphones to listen to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk as part of our fairy tale writing. We had to act out the story which then helped us with our writing later on. We did giggle whilst we were acting - it was very funny!




In PE lessons we have been focusing on balancing and exploring the different ways in which we can balance. We then used the apparatus to find new and exciting ways which we thought was exciting.
