Our learning

17/3/23: Red Nose Day and 50 Things! One of our 50 things is to bake and share it with family. To raise money for charity on Red Nose Day, we baked cupcakes for our school. We then donated and took some home to share with our family.

9/3/23: Bikeability! We were so impressed with the children who participated in Bikeability this week.

10/3/23: Art. Our artwork this week was inspired by Andy Warhol's Rorschach by creating their own symmetrical ink drawings.

3/3/23: One of our 50 things to do before you leave Morton - visit the Library!

2/3/23: World Book Day! 'Curl up with a book' theme this year was a hit! The children worked in teams to 'escape the library' challenge, virtually met Michael Morpurgo, read whenever the bell rang, led book hangman, charades and reflected on the representation of Race in our school library. We can't wait to select our own books at Gainsborough Library tomorrow!

30/1/23: Helmet Safety. On Monday, we had a visitor who explained the importance of wearing a helmet on our bikes.

Persuasive writers! Wow - it was so difficult to choose which letters to send to Mrs Riddle. Well done to all of the children for their hard work writing persuasive letters so that we can go to the pantomime every year!

25/1/23: French! Mr Hyde read through a French text today and we had to decide if we could use our knowledge of English to figure out what the words could mean.

17/1/23: In our Music lesson this week, we learned to sing a song called ‘Freedom is coming’. We then used the notes F G A Bflat and C on the Glockenspiels to improvise and make up our own tunes to part of the song. Our partners had to listen to see if our tune worked with the backing track.

13/1/23: History! We love investigating questions such as, 'Why did Henry VIII murder Anne Boleyn?' and using our Knowledge Organisers to support our understanding.

We're so glad we're back with some new books!
