Welcome to Classes 7 and 8
Properties of Rock
In Year 3, we have been learning about some of the properties of rocks. We investigated which rocks are buoyant and which rocks are permeable. We used a selection of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks and were surprised by some results!
Year 3 have been learning about Rocks and Fossils in Science whilst reading Stone Girl, Bone Girl in English. We have been learning about Mary Anning who discovered the first Ichthyosaurus and shook up the way the World of Science saw fossils and evolution. We have been celebrating the awe and wonder of fossils by excavating our own. Look at the faces of these trainee paleontologists as they discover a fossil!
Class 8 'Kingfisher' Praise Postcard
We have all made a mosaic Kingfisher to decorate our card which was inspired by our whole school metaphor of 'Birds reaching great heights.'
Class 7 'Herons' Praise Postcard
We have all drawn our own Herons to decorate our card which was inspired by our whole school metaphor of 'Birds reaching great heights.'
For our 'Whole School' entrance hall display we wrote poems inspired by the book 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. We united as a whole school to explore our emotions. Can you spot how we have captured each feeling from the story with our use of colour and powerful descriptive language?
Here are our Class Charters for 2020-2021.
Our Learning Metaphor this year is birds.
