Our Learning Challenge this term is Science based and focuses on the question ‘What is our school made of?’ We will be identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials. This Learning Challenge will begin by looking at materials within the classroom environment. We will then explore the outside of the school building to identify, name and discuss the suitability of the materials used to build the school. The children will be given the opportunity to experiment with a range of materials in order to change their shape by bending, stretching, squashing and twisting. We will end with each group giving a presentation to the rest of the class on their chosen material.
During his visit to our school Julio talked to us about Spain. He showed us pictures of his school and home town of Yeles which lies between Madrid and Toledo.
Julio showed us pictures of his family and school. We all listened carefully and then joined in with a Spanish song.
We all listened carefully and found it really interesting and fun.

The theatre company M&M visited school today to perform ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’. We all enjoyed the story and sang along to the songs. Mr Cox and Miss Roe joined in with the dancing.
Class 2 have been reading a story called ‘Silly Billy’. Silly Billy worried about everything. He was given a worry doll to put under his pillow at night to help him sleep. During outdoor learning we made worry dolls using natural and man-made materials.
