Titanic Marble Treat

Welcome aboard the infamous Titanic. We spent an afternoon dining in luxury. Acting in role as first class passengers we ordered from the first class menu, we ate, drank and danced. We had the BEST marble treat EVER!

Dragonflies save the planet! 

When arriving at school on Friday we were soooo upset to find lots of litter on our school field. Mr Venn asked us to help him clean it up. We were so cross about the littering that we decided that we needed to do something about it. We needed to get the message out to world. We need to make a change! There is not Planet B. We must look after the one we have. We have spent the last two weeks writing letters to the future generations telling them to make a change, look after our planet and respect our animals and wildlife.

Roman Day 2021

Roman Soldiers I hear you cry! That's us! We have spent the last half term learning all we can about life as a Roman Soldier and what better way to finish our topic than with a day in role as a Roman! We have written some fantastic Roman stories set 2000 years ago in the heart of Italy Rome in a small town you may have heard of called Pompeii. Stay tuned for our AMAZING descriptive writing about when Mount Vesuvius roared to the heavens and rained down her thunder and lava. Or as one Dragonfly described it "Devils blood!"

This week we have been learning what a good scientist looks like. We are very excited to get stuck into our first science topic in year 3.

Travelling inside Non-Fiction...

Today we did the impossible. Today we took our learning to new realms of possibilities. Today we became literary heroes and used magic to travel inside non-fictions books based around Dragonflies to immerse ourselves in the text. It wasn't without risk but we were up to the challenge lead by our dragonfly chief!
