In Year 3, we have been learning all about magnets. We have sorted materials based on whether they are magnetic or non- magnetic. The children enjoyed exploring the classroom to find magnetic materials.
Year Two have had so much fun recently! They have been to the Lowry in Salford, which was a brilliant day out and they produced some amazing artwork. They also behaved perfectly throughout and loved sharing their knowledge about L S Lowry. The staff at the Lowry were very impressed with the class and told us how fantastic they were! We have lots of budding artists in Owls and they have all created something they were proud of during our recent enrichment week, which was displayed in the hall. You can see some pictures of the artwork in an earlier blog post.
The children are also always working hard at their writing, reading, spelling and maths so we are very proud of them.They are improving all the time. Well done Owls!
Year 3 has a fantastic day at Southport Eco Centre. We took part in a range of activities that linked to our current topic ‘What makes the Earth angry?’ The children learnt lots of new and interesting facts about Volcanoes and Earthquakes and took part in a quiz to see how much they had learnt, everyone did really well and the behaviour and engagement of children was amazing. Have a look at our pictures below.

We have had a very busy month in Kingfishers. We are working very hard on our phonics and writing in Literacy. This term we have been writing a travel journal on Safari using The Lion King as our writing stimulus. In Maths we have been working hard on addition and subtraction. We have started our new Weather topic and in Art we made our own hot and cold collages using different materials. These are proudly on display in our classroom. Some children are enjoying their after school board games club with Mrs Coupe where they are learning new skills and we have all been learning about Chinese New Year for our class assembly next week. We hope you can make it. Finally, we all had fun in the snow too. What a busy month!

Owls learnt so much in Remembrance Enrichment Week. They were very lucky to have a visit from Riley’s Uncle, Corporal Pennington. Here are some of our pictures:
In year 4 we have been reading Charlie and the Choloate factory as our class book. We have designed our own chocolate bars and this week we got the chance to create them and review someone else’s.
Have a look at our designs.
The children had a fantastic time this week meeting and learning all about these wonderful birds of Prey.
This week as part of Remembrance week we have been looking at the First World War. We turned our classroom into a battlefield with trenches. We learned about what soldiers did all day and even had a go at fighting the enemy. We are going to use this experience to produce some diaries later this week. Have a look at what we did below.
