Learning about London…

Ladybirds and Bumblebees loved learning all about London and it was made even better with our ‘buddies’ in Year 3 and 4 becoming our tour guides! They made leaflets and fact files as well as amazing models to teach us all about the places that they had visited on their trip to London. Thank you ‘buddies’, you made our learning even more fun!

Temples, Tombs and Treasure – Year 3/4 Ancient Egypt topic

Year 3/4 started off their new topic with a visit to the inside of an ancient tomb. The children experienced the smells, sounds and relics that would have been experienced in Ancient Egyptian times. It was a creepy experience for some and there were some teachers that needed to have their hand held!!!!

Fair Trade in Year 3/4

Year 3/4 had a great morning recently learning about Fair Trade from Mr Belcher who works for Sainsburys. He talked to the children about what Fair Trade is and how important it is. The children learnt a lot and it was a great addition to our ” What’s on the Menu?” topic this term where we have been learning about different aspects of food.

Buddy Reading

The Ladybirds and Bumblebees have really enjoyed their buddies from Years 3/4 coming to read with them this term. They are great at helping them to spot tricky words, sound out simple words and predict what might happen at the end of a story. Thanks Hedgehogs, Badgers and Otters!
