This term in Geography we will be focusing on Antarctica. In this week's art lesson we used our sketching skills to draw some of our favourite birds, penguins.

Here's Harvey's fabulous sketch!

In the following week's art lesson we were really busy creating newspaper collages of penguins.

In our English lessons, we focused on letter writing. We wrote letters to our parents and carers describing a day in our lives at school. We were all really excited when we walked to the post box and posted our letters home.

Science- as part of our work on sound we made string telephones.

The digestive system.

We have been learning about the digestive system. Kaysha and Riley helped with a pretty gross demonstration to show what happens in the different stages.

As part of our work on The Romans in Britain, we will be making our own scutums (shields) The first part of our project was to design our shields. We learnt how the Romans used wings to represent the eagle( a symbol of power and strength) and lightning bolts to represent Jupiter, king of the gods.
