This week is Science Week and we are learning all about Alexander Graham Bell. We have already learned that he was a very clever and kind man who invented the telephone by accident! We have made our own telephones using plastic cups and string and we have also designed some very modern new mobile phones. We are looking forward to learning more during this week.

The Wizard!

Posted by: | February 28, 2013 | No Comment |

On Tuesday we came into school as normal but something was different…..


Our classroom door was covered and it had a sign telling us to ‘enter’…


When we got inside, the classroom had been transformed! We followed the glitter trail, it led to a magic bag with a letter inside. The letter told us that a Wizard had been in our classroom! We made some potions and spells for the Wizard:


We hope the Wizard will come back!

safer internet day



Today is ‘Safer Internet Day’. This is an annual event which aims to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world. The theme for the day is ‘Online rights and responsibilities’, when we will encourage users to ‘Connect with respect’.

You can find more information by clicking on this link.

To help your children stay safe online the UK Safer Internet Centre has published some easy to follow videos which show you how to set parental controls for the major UK internet providers. You can see them by visiting the UK Safer Internet Centre website.

As you can see, we are getting really confident with adding two numbers together. We can add by putting spots underneath the numbers and counting them altogether. We can also add by putting the big number in our heads and counting on the smaller number. We are so clever!

We all had a great time on Friday wearing our own clothes to school. Some of us sported a slightly hairier top lip than normal too!

Zyaam won the certificate for the best moustache:

We now know a lot about the Hindu Festival of Light – Diwali. We enjoyed hearing the stories, learning about the reasons behind Diwali and making the lanterns which are now displayed in our classroom. We hope you think our lanterns are as beautiful as we do! Here is a photo of the gorgeous Diyas we made too:
