Our learning

ACTIVE MINUTES. Year 3 came onto the field to help me reach my ‘100 miles running in July target’. They were all amazing

Enterprise Week: In our classroom, our team has been making friendship bracelets using a forward hitch. We hope you all manage to buy one as stock is limited.

You can watch our sales jingle on Morton Videos by clicking on the link below.

Art: Prehistoric Palette. We experimented with the pigments in natural products to make different colours which we used to make paint.

Local History Week: We visited Gainsborough Old Hall and entertained King Henry VIII and his wife Catherine Howard at a feast held in their honour.

Gainsborough Old Hall: We also toured the building and learned about life in a Medieval kitchen.

Jubilee preparations: we have made flags and bunting to decorate the school for our celebration event on Friday.

PE: We have been practising our throwing skills, using our dominant hand to throw under arm with accuracy. We have also been throwing for distance using over arm, and our non dominant hand to help us aim accurately.

Science: We are exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil and room to grow) We have worked in groups to set up a fair test, depriving our plant of only one of the requirements.

In computing we’ve been learning about algorithms. Quiz your children and see what they can remember.

Music: we sang and played the first verse and chorus at the end of our lesson

We have been writing to inform and entertain our readers linked to making and using our shadow puppet theatres. You can see some of our work in school when you visit.

Red Nose Day 2022. We supported this great cause by dressing in red and bringing in a donation. We had fun combining our active minutes with a red nose themed egg and spoon race.

We also raised money by buying red noses. One of our pupils had the rarest nose. Can you spot Cam?

In science, we have been looking at how shadows are formed when an opaque object is placed in the path of rays of light. We used our bodies as the opaque object, changing shapes to block the light from the sun.

Our shadow puppet theatres. We decorated our theatres and used a translucent scrim through which we shone a light source. Our opaque shadow puppets blocked the light so we could see them in our theatre.

World Book Day. Some children entered a poetry competition.
