The Land of the Bumbly Boo

Still image for this video



As part of our poetry unit, we learnt and recited The Land of the Bumbly Boo by Spike Milligan. We then wrote our own nonsense poems in this style - the children really enjoyed this unit! 



As part of our Science topic we took part in the RIAT STEM rocket challenge. During the morning we made rockets and tested out firing them at different angles and we also tested out launching them with different payloads. Then during the afternoon we learnt about sustainable aircrafts and we designed our own. 

RIAT - STEM Rocket Challenge



In English, we have been reading Fox by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks. The children have enjoyed exploring the different characters and writing a letter of apology as Magpie to Dog. 



During Art Week, we explored the work of David Hockney. We studied and practiced the pencil techniques he used and tried to incorporate them into our own interpretations of his art work. 

Science - Parts of a Flower


In Science, we have been learning about the different parts of a flower. We dissected an alstroemeria flower and labelled the different parts, using scientific vocabulary.
