Look what we have been up to recently...

This term we have been having lots of fun in our English lessons. We wrote and performed our own raps on the theme of anti-bullying. In Science, we have learnt about electricity and were excited to make our own circuits. We found out what materials were conductors or insulators, investigated what happens when more batteries were added to a circuit and operated a buzzer using a switch. In French,  we have learnt the names of body parts.  During our Design and Technology lessons, we practised and used our sewing skills to make a felt Anglo Saxon brooch.
