Autumn 1 Topic - Predators


Our Birds of Prey visit was a great success and such a wonderful way to start our topic. Thank you for all those that have contributed the £2 payment already and there is still some outstanding which can be made at anytime. We are now looking forward to our visit to London Zoo on Monday 7th October so we can learn much more about the skeletons of these animals and get our hands on some!

Autumn 2 Topic – Hola Mexico



Frida Kahlo

We enjoyed sketching and painting these portraits of Frida Kahlo. 


Spring 1 Topic – Potions

We have had an exciting start to the New Year with our Potions topic. We have read  The Mad Tea Party (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) and rewritten it in play script style. Then we had an exciting few days performing our play scripts for the class. We are now reading Harry Potter and writing fantastic setting descriptions! Photos of our upcoming Potions experiments and artwork are coming soon!
