Our topic for this term is People Who Help Us and over the past few weeks we have been taking part in an art project with Mrs Preston on a Wednesday afternoon.  We worked in groups to plan, design and create a lifeboat.  The first week we planned what resources we would need to make our lifeboat and what each resource would be used for.  The next few weeks we used our imagination and creativity to create the lifeboat using junk art, paint, glue and other resources.  

Today we were able to present the boat to our class and tell them lots of details about the name of the boat, the captain’s name, how many crew it had and one group even told us the measurements of its height, width and length. 

The most exciting part of our project was testing if our boats floated or sank.  We are pleased to say that most of our boats floated and only a few toppled over onto their side.  We talked about why they toppled over and we would consider this when completing a similar project. ⛴🛳 

Well done to all the boys and girls for their fantastic team work and excellent presentation skills in front of their peers. Super work! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a lovely ending to our school year! Have a look at our photos and videos to see what we got up to on our Colour Run. Each class bubble had a turn to go to the pitch and Ronan got everyone warmed up with some Zumba. Next it was time to get colourful as our lovely white t-shirts got covered in coloured powder. Our time at the pitch was finished off by making a colour cloud. Well done boys and girls on making this such a success and a huge thank you for the amazing amount of money you and your families have raised for our school-you are all superstars!!

During term three our class have been reading ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. In this book George makes a number of medicines, all of which have different effects on the people that take them. On Friday Mr Campbell brewed some of his own concoctions for everyone to try. Have a look at the pictures below, can you tell that the children enjoyed these?

Well done to all of the boys and girls for their hard work making their wonderful egg creations.  They were all fantastic but we had to choose some winners in each class. Samantha and Cherry from the kitchen had the very difficult job of choosing a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each class. 

Well done to everyone for taking part.

Happy Easter :)
