History:

On Thursday 16th February we celebrated our learning in History by holding a ‘Florence Nightingale Day.’  We all came to school dressed as nurses and soldiers.  We had a visit from the school nurse, she came to talk to us about medicine safety.  We also made lamps, learned how to bandage a head injury and role-played some situations from the Crimean War and had a quiz. We had so much fun. Take a look at our photos.

English:

Some of us have recently become published authors on the Pobble Website.  Here are some links to our writing. Why not leave us a comment?

In Maths for the next few weeks we will be learning lots about money.  Finding totals, making change and looking at different combinations of coins.
