We have been learning about the life cycles of animals, humans and plants. Today we had fluffy visitors. Nine chicks hatched in the reception class last Wednesday and it was wonderful to have them in Normans class for the afternoon.

7 day old chicks come to visit.

The Great Fire of London Workshop

We had such a wonderful day roleplaying life in 1666. We visited some of the different shops to make candles, plague clay badges, leather work, our own ink to write with, soap with nice smelling herbs and some smelling bags. We caught some diseased rats, looked for French soldiers, formed water lines and tried to put out the fire. Eventually we left London for safety. Once the fire had died down we spent time looking at artefacts found in different places to help us work out what type of shop had been burnt down, we had to look for lots of clues to help us make our decisions.

We have been learning about nurses Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole who were nurses during the Crimean War. We have been learning about what hospitals were like at the time and how they have changed because of these nurses. We had a fun day enriching our topic learning this term!


In Vikings, we have been writing stories based on the wonderful film clips by Maia Walczak. We have worked hard to use beautiful language to tell the story. Here are our completed pieces. We hope you enjoy them.

We have had a fantastic week! We have been visited by a lovely lady from Newbury Agricultural Society who brought her goat for us to learn about and milk. We even tasted some delicious goat's cheese. We met some scientists from Pfizer and found out that medicines take about 12 years to be made and cost over a billion pounds to make. We went into the planetarium and took a special trip under the sea learning about some interesting life below the water. In our classes we have been busy too. In Viking Class we made some balloon powered cars and had fun making gas from vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to inflate balloons.
