Anyone for chinese?

We enjoyed tasting different Chinese foods. Our verdict? Mmmmm,nom nom and yum!

Keeping busy…and a bit of fun!

We are busy little bees in Durham class. Have look at what we have been up to.

Getting that sinking feeling.

In our science lesson we explored different materials- if they would sink or float in water. We managed not to get too wet!

Aren’t we arrtistic…ahoy there me hearties

As an introduction to our new topic we created our own pirate hats. We will soon be sailing the sea and searching for some treasure!

We are all stars!

We dined out at Frankie and Benny’s after our bowling trip, because we were so polite and the waitress said she loved having us there, we all received the headteacher’s award at our star of the week assembly!

It’s a strike!

Let’s get ready to bowl. What a fantastic time we had knocking those pins over.

Red nose day!

We all made our funniest faces for comic relief.

I scream for Ice Cream!

We made our own ice cream in our Science lesson. We had to use our muscles to give it a good shake. Wonder if it tastes good?

Melting Moments.

Following on from our lesson about melting we used our skills and knowledge to make some chocolate rice crispie squares. We melted, poured and mixed. The best part will be the taste test!

Durham class rules!

We have been practising our measuring skills using rulers this week.


Before the holiday we enjoyed a trip to Magna. Our firm favourite was the water area and not just because we got the adults wet! We had lots of fun in all the areas.

Anyone for yogurt?

We became yogurt creators, choosing and adding our own ingredients. Did we go for healthy fruit or chocolate? Which would you choose?

Around the world in one afternoon!

We tried lots of different foods, inspired by different countries. Our reactions were quite mixed as you can see!


Shall we go left, right, forwards or backwards? We had lots of fun sending our Beebots to different destinations.

Tall or short?

We carried on our fantastic learning in maths looking at objects and ordering them by size. We also looked at our friends and teachers, lining them up inĀ  height order. Who is the shortest and who is the tallest?

Our topic this term is Land Ahoy! We are all very excited to learn about pirates and sea explorers.

In English lessons, we will be reading a selection of different pirate books. We will write fact files about Captain Cook, a famous sea explorer. We will write descriptions about a pirate, thinking about the pirates likes, dislikes and day to day life. This will link with our Humanities sessions, where we will be learning about sea explorers and pirates.

We will learn about different materials in Science, predicting whether they will sink or float and making boats of different shapes, sizes and materials. We can then decide which boat works best.

In Maths, there will be more focus on basic skills, which will help us throughout our lives, continuing with number recognition, addition and subtraction. We will also look at money and time this term.

We are looking forward to learning and performing different sea shanties and going for a trip on a barge!

In addition to this, daily task series programmes will continue.

We are all looking forward to our final term!

Please do get in touch with us, if you have any questions!
