Class 7 artwork
This half term, Class 7 have been working with Liz to practice their drawing and painting skills. They have spent time closely observing drains and then creating what they see. Here are some examples of what the children have made.

We have learnt how to use metaphors in our writing to paint images in our reader's mind. Here is an example of a poem from Sophie's literacy group.

Today in Class 9, we had a go at solving some Sudoku puzzles.

Exploring different world maps
In geography this term, we are comparing England, Spain and Brazil. We have been using atlases to find the coordinates of the countries and National Geographic map mapper to decide the climates.
Here we are
This term the whole school have been exploring Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. In year 5, we have really enjoyed discussing the themes of the book and reading poetry inspired these ideas.
What makes you smile?
We are entering a competition set by the Children's Bookshow. The theme is 'What makes you smile?' Today, Charlotte's class created drawings and collages to enter into the competition.
