Photographers at work....


Today in Da Vinci class we became photographers and we had a go at taking pictures of our beautiful garden. We were inspired by our artist of the term Aliza Razell, who mixes photography with water colour to produce stunning pieces. Take a look at the pictures below of the children at work and some of the pictures they took!

Fizz Pop Science workshop

On Thursday afternoon Da Vinci class took part in a Science workshop that was run by the company Fizz Pop. The children had great fun and were very excited to make some slime (which they have been instructed to keep away from soft furnishings!). Check out the pictures below of the children enjoying their experiment!

Road Safety

This term in PSHE we are looking at managing risks around us and in our local area. We will be learning about how to keep ourselves safe at the beach and other holiday locations near to us such as rail. Today we looked at our local area and the risks around us. We took a walk along the school and discussed risks or dangers outside our school and the safest place to cross the road. Take a look at the video below to show you how we can stay safe when crossing the road.

The Mummification day....

On Monday we continued our learning about the Ancient Egyptians by studying the process of mummification. We learnt all about the steps they followed to mummify a body (some more gruesome than others!) and we then attempted a mummification on a tomato. We named him Pharaoh Tomatos and we will be seeing how the tomato looks after its 10 days in the salt bath. Check out the pictures below of the children's beocming embalmers.

We're rocking around the Christmas tree...


After winning the best decorated Christmas classroom yesterday, the children were able to decorate the Mole Valley Christmas tree that is displayed in our HEART space. We spent the afternoon colouring, singing Christmas songs and decorating the tree beautifully. Look at the pictures below and let us know what you think!

Year 3's Iron Man mission....

Today Year 3 started reading the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. After reading the first chapter and learning about the Iron Man and his tumble down the cliff edge, the children were sent on a recon mission to find parts of the Iron Man that he left behind in our digging pit (images below). The children worked very hard to find all the pieces and we even had to go back after a piece mysteriously went missing!!!


Over the next two weeks we continue reading the Iron Man and find out what he is up to....

Let's get digging...
