A few weeks ago, Year 1 children spent a morning designing their own houses out of Lego. They had spent time in the previous weeks walking around the local streets studying the different styles of houses and finding out how housing styles can change with time. Year 1 had studied the materials used to build houses and talked about why these are used. They then imported several thousand Lego bricks and every child built a house, complete with working lights! Finally the houses were all put together to form a village. Some of the finished models are featured below.
This was our first assembly of the new half term and the standard was set very high. One child from each class is asked to share something they are pleased with. Here is a selection of the children’s work. Remeber to click on any image to enlarge it.
Liy’s drawings of Jessie J and Katy Perry as part of Year 2′s Pop Art project.
Chris and Connor wrote a fable, Connor was chosen for the huge effort he put in to improve his presentation.
Olivia’s independent writing about the battle of Hastings.
Alisha’s ICT drawn castle for the new king William.
Dylan’s non fiction text on mountains, this was page 1 of 2!
Could you tell us about any walks you have done around our area. Tell us about walks in the Pennines or the Dales. My favourite is a place called Coniston which is near Kettlewell. I love to walk through the peaceful dales and I really enjoy the rocky gorge at the end.
In Year 4, we have just started our new topic this week and Miss Samtaney and I would like to know what you already know about Rainforests!
Add a comment on this post with a fact that you already know about Rainforests. You could also post a question with something you would really like to found out about during our topic. We will keep checking the blog during our lessons and see if we can answer all the questions by the end of this half term.
We hope everyone is looking forward to our visit to the South Lakes Animal Park at the end of March!
Recently Year 3 held a pirate week and finished the week by dressing as pirates. They made maps, treasure chests and ship’s biscuits (without the weevils). They wrote pirate stories and sang sea shanties. They worked at home too and their parents helped them to build the finest set of pirate galleons ever to sail the high seas. There is a small selection of pictures below to give you a flavour of the swashbuckling that went on.

If you are in Year 3, post a comment to tell us what you learned during your pirate topic.
