We have been looking at the different components in blood; plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Can you tell which is which?

Our first science topic is to explore the circulatory system. We will investigate how it works and look in detail at the different organs involved. We will also explore how exercise and diet can effect it.

We have been busy investigating the Heart. We looked at the structure of the heart in detail including the atria, ventricles, veins and arteries. We used our scientific knowledge to draw detailed diagrams of the heart. Take a look below:

In French this term we have been learning how to describe the different seasons.

Tres Bien!

We finished this half term's fundraising with a grand total of £95.81! We have raised the money by having a raffle, a non-uniform day and then we finished with the 20p stack competition! 

TRASHION SHOW for ECO DAY

Here we are modelling our wonderful outfits we designed and made using only recycled items for Eco-Day!

Buddies

We are so excited to have been paired up with our new buddy from reception and get to know them so well. We had an assembly where we introduced our buddies to the school community. We cannot wait to guide them through their first year at our school.

Our RE topic 'Called to Serve' supports preparation for the sacrament of confirmation which will take place within the parish.

How do we serve God in our daily lives?

What does it mean to be a Catholic Christian?

How do people show their service to God and others?

Our first art project was to draw a self portrait in the style of Friedrich Hundertwasser.

Can you spot anyone you recognise?
