In addition to this, to mark the centenary of Universal Suffrage in the UK, we will be learning about the suffragettes.

Road Safety

This morning Miss Jeannie came to talk to us about road safety. We discussed dangers including using your mobile phone and listening to music which can distract us; we could easily step into the path of oncoming cars. Also, we talked about the importance of wearing a seat belt in cars. In small groups we role played different scenarios.

European Banquet

This week we enjoyed a banquet, sampling traditioinal food from the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Poland, Italy, Switzerland and Greece. We thought about the appearance, taste, flavour and texture of each delicious sample.


James and the Giant Peach

To celebrate Roald Dahl Day, we read extracts from James and the Giant Peach. We looked at and discussed how Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker treated James. In pairs, we took on the roles of James and one of the Aunts and had a conversation. Next, we wrote what we had said in a play script.

Working alongside Y6, we tried to find a way to lift a peach (ball of cotton wool) without using our hands. We made a rocket, catapults and used balloons.

For our entry point to our topic "The Holiday Show", we researched the capital of France, Paris as a possible travel destination. We used a variety of different medias to research; including an atlas, leaflets, film and possibly the best one – eating! We wrote persuasive leaflets and then presented the information to Miss Watson’s class (Year 4).
