Great Fire of London Baking

We have been learning about the Great Fire of London.  We learnt that the fire started in a bakery in Pudding Lane.  We wanted to learn how to make bread so we all learnt how to make bread.  We produced some delicious bread rolls!

Art inspired by Remembrance Day

Making Faces

We have made models of our own faces out of clay and have then painted them.  We mixed the colours to get the shade we wanted for our faces.  The faces will be going on display when they are finally completed. Please have a look at some pictures of us working very hard to get our faces just right!


We have been learning about lighthouses, so in Science we've been trying to get bulbs to light up using batteries and wires.


We have enjoyed reading stories about Mr Grinling, who is The Lighthouse Keeper. The children have used these stories as inspiration so as to make their own model lighthouses. Come and see more of them in our classroom!


We designed and made owl puppets using felt and our sewing skills. Afterwards, we got into groups to write a play, before performing it to the rest of the class.

Making Rainforest Biscuits - February 2017

As part of our topic on the rainforest, we made biscuits using ingredients that are found in the rainforest. We then used our instruction writing skills to let other people know hoe to make these lovely biscuits.

Our visit to Newquay Zoo - January 2017

We visited Newquay Zoo with Widemouth class as part of our topic on the rainforest.  We learnt lots about the different types of creatures which live in the rainforest.  We used our learning to write fact files and riddles.
