    If you finish your book then read something from home, you can read: comics, fiction, non-fiction, newspapers, posters etc


    Practice/learn your times tables at home whenever you get the chance. They are really important and will help you in all your maths lessons.
    When you have learnt a times table then let Mrs Broadbridge or Mrs Blenkinsop know and they will test you. You need to know each times table up to 12x, be able to say it in order, answer random questions and know the inverse (division)

    You can also practice telling the time and using money.

    Every Friday we do our Froggy Maths.
    You have 5 minutes to answer as many questions as you can. Well done if you get them all right, then your frog will hop onto the next Froggy club lily-pad. If you don’t quite get them all correct or you don’t finish in time then the sheet will be sent home for you to look at over the week, ready for the next Tuesday Foggy Club.


    Every Friday we will have our spelling test.
    Remember to bring your spelling book in on a Friday so your next spellings can be put in ready to learn.

  • @ Bristol Brain and Body Day

    We had an AMAZING day at @ Bristol, or as it is now called We The Curious!

    The day was to enhance our class topic ‘FunnyBones’ and we spent it learning all about the human body.

    The workshops were great fun – we measured the brain size of different primates to compare with the human brain and we looked at different skeletons.  We also used a special microscope connected to the computer to see enlarged images of our hair, teeth, freckles, fingerprints, ears etc.  Finally, we worked in teams to complete an MRI jigsaw of the human body.

    The science show was all about how the human body works.  We found out about neurons, the brain, how blood is moved around the body by the heart, muscles and much more.

    At the end of the day we had time to explore the exhibits and the obligatory trip to the shop!!

    Arcimboldo Fruit & Veg Faces

    As part of our Erasmus+ project we have been looking at artist who have used fruit and vegetables in their work.  We looked at the work of Arcimboldo, which was very interesting and unusual.

    We then had the opportunity to make our own faces out of a wide range of fruit and veg!!  Mrs Griffith helped us and the final pieces of art were amazing – we were so excited and pleased with them.  The photos Mrs Griffith took are on display outside our classroom.

    So we didn’t waste the produce we then made some very tasty smoothies and yummy soup which we got to eat.

    Science Fun with Dr Rhodes

    We had great fun learning about magnetism in our science session with Dr Rhodes.  We built models based on the Indian Rope Trick and investigated how the poles of a magnet work using the words ATTRACT and REPEL.  Dr Rhodes was amazed by the awesome and tricky questions we asked him – it really made his brain hurt to explain the answers!!!

    Caerleon Roman Museum Trip

    Wye class had an amazing day at Caerleon Roman Museum.  We found out about the amphitheatre and the Roman Barracks, we even  got to explore the remains.  We then went an looked at the Roman Baths and found out how the Romans washed and kept clean.  The workshops were really interesting and great fun.  We dressed as masters and servants and got to feed each other the foods that the Romans would have eaten at a banquet.  There were some very unusual foods!!  Then we went into the Barrack Room and got to try on a Roman soldier’s armour.  Wow!! it was very heavy.
