RE-In RE we have been learning about the symbolism of light and Advent. We had Simon from St Stephens church come and talk to us about Advent, we had lots of questions to ask him.

Natural History Museum-We visited the Natural History Museum to deepen our understanding on Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We took part in an emergency workshop where we got to see a seismograph being used. We then explored the red zone where we saw volcanic rock and went in an earthquake simulator.

English-In English we learnt our 10 new key vocabulary words and to deepen our understanding we used drama. We practiced the key words and then performed them in front of the class and they had to guess which word we were acting out.

Geography- We had a debate in geography discussing the positives and negatives of living beside a volcano. We gave really good arguments using our knowledge on volcanoes and then we wrote up our argument.

Science-In science we carried out an experiment on how different drinks affect our teeth using eggs. We made predictions and then we carried out a fair test using the same size container and the same amount of liquid. We shall be checking what has happened to the eggs after 3 and 7 days.

Assembly-We performed our assembly on Volcanoes and Earthquakes for the whole school and lots of parents. We recalled facts about volcanoes and taught children how to stay safe. We read out our recounts of a volcanic eruption, had a breaking news report and ended on a great song!

Science-In science we have been learning about different animal's teeth. We discussed carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and what different types of teeth they would have and why. We then looked at picture of animal's teeth and sorted them into the different categories.

DT-In DT we are learning about different structures and how they can be made stronger. We looked at different techniques that can be used. We then had to complete different challenges such as build a bridge using paper and sellotape and a tower that can stand unsupported.

PSHE- We have been learning about friendships and relationships in PSHE. We discussed how our body reacts to different emotions and ordered the emotions with their level of intensity. We discussed how we feel in different situations.

Maths-In maths we have been learning about area. We use post its to see how many we would need to fill in a 2D shape. We discussed that it was better to use squares then circles to fill shapes as it means less gaps.

English-We have been learning about imagery and how to make our writing more creative and imaginative. We learnt about similes and metaphors and how to apply them to our writing. Here we are finding similes and metaphors that match.

Geography-We have started our new topic Volcanoes and Earthquakes! We were mid lesson when there was a rumbling noise and Miss Heekin told us to get under the desks as an earthquake had happened. We then wrote a script of a newspaper report of the events that had happened and performed it.

English-We learnt new vocabulary for our new topic on narratives. We acted out the words to help us with our understanding and presented them to the class for them to guess the word. We worked well in our partners and tables so our acting was extremely creative.

Computing-In computing we made a power point presentation on the Romans. We researched information using reliable sources, then we learnt how to copy and paste images on to a power point and change the colour scheme. Then we used our courage to present our information to the class.

Olympics-To finish our topic on Ancient Rome we held Topaz Olympics! We had many events and won medals and crowns. We competed in running races, relays, chariot racing, javelin, non-contact boxing and discuss throwing.

Globe Theatre- The children went to the Globe Theatre to further their learning and understanding of the Shakespeare play 'Julius Caesar'. First, we had a tour of the theatre and learnt about the fire and how it was rebuilt and where the best play to sit was and the trapdoors. Then we had a workshop where we got to practise our acting skills and play games.

Parents afternoon-We had a lovely time making mosaics with some parents who popped in. We got to show off our learning and our classroom. We even got to perform a song!

Science-In Science we have been learning about living things and their habitats. We carried out an investigation on woodlice and how they react to light. We made a choice chamber with different sections such as dark, damp and dry and observed where the woodlice moved. We made predictions and then evaluated our recordings.

Fulham Palace-We went to Fulham Palace to learn about what life was like in an Ancient Rome villa. We got to hold real Roman artefacts and learnt their history. Then we got to dress up and do some drama, where we acted out different roles in Rome. Then we explored Fulham Palace and learnt all about the Bishops. We loved seeing the Great Hall and the Chapel.

Computing-In computing we have been learning to send emails. We researched facts about the Romans and then used our typing skills to send an email to another pupil and read their facts,

Art-We have been learning about mosaics in art. We first coloured in squares using colouring pencils. Then we moved onto printing where we used sticks and paint to make a repeated pattern. Then we used paper to create mosaics. We really enjoyed using different materials and styles we knew we had to focus to make sure our mosaics were brilliant!

Roald Dahl Day-We celebrated Roald Dahl day by focusing on the text 'The Magic Finger'. We acted out a scene from the book and then we wrote what we would do if we had the magic finger. We also created some art work of a magic finger.
