November… In November we were very busy learning lots of new exciting things. We started our times tables which was scary but once we started we loved them. We did a science experiment with Alka Seltzer and candles.

We also got ready for Christmas a little but early this year. We made a Wishing Christmas Tree. We wrote a wish on each green link and we hope they will come true. We are preparing for our Christmas Performance and we have started learning songs and dance moves for Peace Proms.We are very excited for the Toy Show and have looked back at the history of the Toy Show and past shows. We have picked our names for Secret Santa and we are bursting with excitement.

October… We had so much fun in October. We were so excited that we got to visit Garter Lane to complete a fantastic art activity. We made our very own starry night picture inspired by Van Gogh.

We had so much fun dressing up for Halloween. Everyone made such a great effort and we had an amazing day.

September… We have been really busy and excited settling into Third Class. We have had a great few weeks catching up with friends and making new ones. At Art we have been learning about the Colour Wheel and how to make lots of colours from our three prime colours. We had lots of fun being creative.

We have made our split face portraits one side our faces and the other side was everything that made us who we are. We had Ms. Lucy Barden to help us make our Trinity bracelets during religion. We have learned about Claude Monet and did a representation drawing of his picture ‘Bridge over a Pond of Water Lillies’. We recycled a catalogue to make Disney Princess Dresses. You can also see our group picture of our Eye Colour Wheel which we mixed all our own colours. We are learning about Taylor Swift at the moment, learning something new everyday and having lots of fun too.
