Brilliant Assembly!

A huge well done to everyone in Whales class for a brilliant class assembly.  We managed to retell lots of facts about the Great Fire of London, but in a really fun way.  Lines were word perfect and our audience seemed to enjoy the songs too. Well done!

Waxing Lyrical.

Our investigation in science this week has been to find out how we can make material waterproof. We need this in wellies, tents and for life-savers when sailing, to prevent water soaking into our clothes.  Good communication and close observation helped this investigation to be a success. Thank you Miss Grice. We have also been […]
