There are 28 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Yates and our teaching assistant is Mrs Cunliffe.  Our Class Governor is Mrs Lester.

 

Lego Robotics Workshop

We used the Lego WeDo 2.0 software to connect our Smart Hub and motor. We used the software to create an algorithm. We experimented using the direction, timer, music and video instructions to create a longer algorithm. We learnt how to be a robotics engineer, by building a fairground ride, using a lever, pulley and axle. We connected the motor and programmed the ride using the software and wrote an algorithm. We made the ride spin, added noises and flashing lights.

Freshwater Theatre Visit - The Great Fire of London

We took part in an exciting drama workshop, where we learnt all about the events of the Great Fire of London. We recreated scenes of everyday life in Pudding Lane, the fire itself, the frantic escape and made decisions about how to rebuild the city. We met Samuel Pepys, King Charles II and the Lord Mayor of London along the way!We took part in an exciting drama workshop, where we learnt all about the events of the Great Fire of London.

Recreating the Great Fire!

We made Tudor houses using cardboard boxes, paint and straw based on pictures we had seen from our Great Fire of London non-fiction books. Before setting some of the houses alight, we placed them close together because the streets were narrow in 1666. We watched the flames spread quickly in the wind from house to house until there were only ashes left.
