Please check our class pages on ClassDojo regularly as we update these 2-3 times a week. Due to current circumstances, we will be posting homework onto ClassDojo, under the children's portfolios. Their homework can be easily submitted directly to the class teacher this way. Check out this great video on how families can use portfolios to upload work and respond to activities: https://youtu.be/3XCXSBHbMIo

In Science, we have been learning about the human body. In the last few lessons, we have focused on the human heart. The children had the opportunity to dissect a lamb's heart and were able to locate the different parts and discuss their functions.
We have been focusing on the virtues of teamwork, motivation, patience and perseverance this term. The children have displayed all of these virtues and more during our outdoor sessions. So far, we have completed cup stacking, team challenges and had lots of discussions about what makes a good team!
We have been looking at 3D modelling in Computing and have been getting used to the software 'TinkerCad'. The children have become familar with the perspective tools and are able to rotate and move a shape. They have also created a maze, a house and a keyring using the skills they have learnt so far.
