The children enjoyed making their own Christingles and learning about the Christingle tradition in RE before attending our service at the parish church.
In Summerleaze we have been looking at the author Roald Dahl and have written our own version of his work 'The BFG'.
Investigating Plants - March 2018
In science we have started to learn about plants. We are currently investigating what plants need to live. We have taken some primrose plants and planted them in different ways: without leaves; without roots; without flowers; without water and in other ways. To make it a fair test, we have also planted one 'whole' primrose in sunlight and watered it every day. We look forward to sharing our findings...
Art inspired by Caspar David Friedrich
In art we have been learning about watercolour techniques. We looked at the art work of Caspar David Friedrich and looked at how he could create moods in his paintings through his use of colour mixing, particularly in the colours he chose for his skies. Have a look at our finished pieces of art work below.
We held a school Christingle service in St James' Church in the village on Monday 18th December. Before the service, we did some research to find out about the meaning of Christingle. We also enjoyed making our own Christingle oranges. Below you can see some of our creations!

On Wednesday 19th July 2107, Summerleaze class were very lucky to have the opportunity to work with Mr Davis.
Mr Davis talked to the children about the importance of different foods, carried out a food related quiz and made chocolate eclairs. The children had a fantastic time!
Spinners in Science
We have been planning our own investigations in science linked to spinners. Our first investigation looked at whether there was a connection between the size of the spinner and the time the spinner took to drop.
This investigation has led us to think of other investigations we could conduct. Watch this space...
Pirate FM Workshop
We were very excited to have a visit from Pirate FM to help us make adverts for the chocolate bars we designed and made in DT.
