    R.E - The Easter Story

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We had great fun using drama to retell the story of Easter. It was a brilliant way to tie together all of our work this term. A big shout out to Alfie as Judas, Josh as Pontius Pilate, Isabelle as the angel, Mathilda as the narrator and Owen as Jesus.

    Science - A Feast of Flowers

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We played an interactive quiz that recapped on all our knowledge and understanding of flowers, fruits and seeds. We then had to try and rearrange pictures to explain the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants.

    Geography - Local Area

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We warmed up by trying to locate various towns and cities on a map of the United Kingdom. We then looked at a detailed Victorian Ordnance Survey map of Berkeley and tried to identify the street names and landmarks that still existed.

    PSHE - Healthy Me

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Our focus this term has been on a healthy mind and body. We've looked at how exercise affects our bodies and understood why our heart and lungs are such important organs. We have also looked at how being anxious or nervous makes us feel and strategies we could use to help us overcome these emotions.

    We have been mixing colours effectively this term. Today, we used a number of brush techniques using thick and thin brushes to produce shapes and patterns inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night.

    R.E - Good Friday

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Our Christianity focus continued with a look at Good Friday. The main discussion asked if Good Friday was so good, why was it so sad? We talked about betrayal, forgiveness and looked at the importance of the cross - all whilst enjoying some hot cross buns!

    Victorian Morning

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We are looking at Victorians this term - we missed out on this brilliant topic during the first lockdown. The children lined up to pay for their education (which they found hilarious!) and then took part in a morning drill exercise. They then took part in lessons comprising of the three Rs - Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic. We stood to chant our times tables and used chalk to practice our handwriting. Sorry to Reception and Year 2, who had to listen to Sir whilst he roamed the corridor swinging his cane!

    We have started a new unit based all around money. The various concepts we will be focusing on are: using combinations of coins to make amounts beyond £1, adding amounts in pence expressing the answer using £ and p and subtracting pence from £2, £5 and £10.
