4JI Circuits

As part of our electricity learning, the children experimented with circuits yesterday. Their aim was to use crocodile clips, a bulb and a battery in order to light the bulb. The children loved the hands on experience and were very proud of themselves when their bulb lit up! 

Year 4 Class Invasions!

As part of our new topic learning on the "Romans", 4JI decided to show 4TS what an invasion looks like! We took over their classroom by sitting on their desks, moving them out of the chairs and causing quite a racket! 

The next day however, 4TS got their revenge, and it was worse than 4JI could have expected! They stole our books, took our coats and bags off their pegs and caused quite a scene! 

The children absolutely loved the rivalry and the first hand experience of an invasion!

3NL - Book Swap

Last Friday, Year 3 created a Book-Swap library. The children had great fun in bringing in their books to swap with their friends.

All of the children were given a book review to complete,
ready to pass onto to the next classmate who chooses to read the book.

The class would like to say a BIG thank-you to Mr Bray who helped set up the library and the generous
parents who donated books.

3NL High Acheivers!

Congratulations to the children who achieved 40/40 in their 8 times tables and moved up on Planet Maths last week.
