Dear Parents


Thank you for taking the time to look at our class pages. Here you will be able to find useful links and get an insight into what your child is learning about in school.

Attached are links to your child's homework and a context web, which breaks down what your child will be learning about in each area of the curriculum.

Photos will also be posted on here, with different activities that your child has been participating in during the week.

Any letters that go out from the Year group will also appear on this page, so keep checking!

Thank you for looking and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to discuss them with your child's teacher, or a member of our team.

We built 3D models of UK Landmarks using Lego and Plasticine! Can you guess what they are?

Natural History Museum!

We are showing our true colours!

Textiles and Sculpture fun! Work based around the book 'Elmer'!

You are what you eat-Healthy Living Day!

In Science, we are learning about the 'Digestive System'. Using biscuits, water, orange juice, tights and a cup, Emerald Class investigated how food travels from the mouth and leaves the body as waste.


First, we crushed biscuits and added to a bag (stomach).


Next, we poured water (saliva) and orange juice (acid) into the bag to show how the food breaks up within the stomach walls. We squashed the bag to imitate the stomach walls churning the food. 


After that, we poured the mixture into a pair of tights (small intestine) and squeezed the water out. The liquid that left the tights shows the nutrients entering the blood stream of the body. Anything left over in the tights was transferred into a cup (large intestine) and pushed out through a hole in the cup (anus) as waste! 


What a fun and exciting way to learn about the digestive system! Have a look at our photos to see if you can explain each part of the experiment.

Food for thought!

In Art, we are learning about Guiseppe Arcimboldo, a 16th century artist who was well-known for his imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. Using the fruit and vegetables from our greenhouse, the children had a play with assembling fruit and vegetables to make a face. Over the next couple of weeks, we will attempt to paint portraits in the style of Guiseppe Arcimboldo, so watch this space!

Place Value fun!

In Maths, we learnt how to add and subtract using diennes cubes. We solve tricky sums where we had to work backwards to solve the number eg ______ + 300 - 90 +20 = 400. Using our diennes cubes , we first made 400, then we subtracted 20, added 90 and subtracted 300 to get 170.
