Congratulations to Year 3 and Year 4 children for their wonderful performances of 'Peter Pan' this week. It was amazing! As well as 3 play performances we also had a trip to Forest School, where we made bird hides as part of our Design & Technology project (see photos below). In Science we learned about transportation in plants by setting up an experiment using sticks of celery and blue food colouring! We also performed the song 'Ain't no grave' on ukuleles, taking turns to alternate between the E minor and D major chords.
It's been a short, but busy term and the children have learnt loads!
Hope you all have a lovely Easter Break.
Mr Hewett and 3 Larch
Here is what the children in 3 Larch wanted to share about their learning this week
"In English we've been learning about hummingbirds." - Madison
"In Maths we've been figuring out measurements in cm, mm and m!" - Saoirse
"In RE we had an RE day (Friday) and in the morning, we looked at different questions about Easter and we made Easter cards for The Marmalade Trust. Then in the afternoon, we looked at a video about how Christians celebrate Easter." - Minna
"In PE we got in groups of 4 and there was 1 person in the middle we had to move into new spaces to receive the ball so the person in the middle couldn't get the ball (football)." - Leona
"We also played a 2v2 match!." - Suhaib
We have also been working on our songs for the Peter Pan production. Please make sure your child has their play clothes in a bag for Monday if they are not already in school. (plain trousers / leggings and a plain t-shirt - black coloured if possible).

We hope you have a lovely weekend. Long may the sunny weather continue!
We've had a fun-packed second week of term 4. It was lovely and sunny at Forest school on Wednesday and we learnt to tie clove hitches and square lashings...we also looked at the different parts of plants and made our own plant pictures using natural resources to demonstrate our understanding. We have been learning more songs for our end of term Peter Pan production. We have continued our work on multiplication and division in Maths and we have been learning about glossaries and other features of non-fiction texts in English. The children have started to design bird hides as part of their Design Technology project.
Please have a look at photos below.
Have a super weekend
