Learning in Action


In Literacy, we looked at improving our writing by using figurative language.  We looked at similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia and hyperbole.  Here we are sorting the different categories.

Anne Frank

As part of our history and Literacy topic, we studied Anne Frank before writing our own biographies.  Here we are sorting dates into chronological order.


In maths, we played a place value decimal game with our partner to see who could make the greatest number.

Anti-Bullying Week

We looked at different scenarios for bullying and had to discuss with our partner if some were more serious than others and why.  We then chose one scenario, and wrote a letter to offer some advice.


In Science we investigated what conditions makes bread go mouldy.  Three identical pieces of bread were placed in sealed plastic bags and we observed what happened over the space of a week.  They were placed: by the classroom sink, on the classroom radiator and in the fridge.

We also went on a bug hunt when we were looking at classifying creatures.

Relax and Read

Here are some of the reading sessions which took place along with when our parents were invited in.

We went on a school trip to the Warning Zone. Here are some images from the trip.
