Bug Club is a way for children to read books and complete activities which focus on spelling, grammar and phonics.
Children also get the opportunity to complete activities and play educational games as a reward for completing tasks set by their class teacher.
The video below explains how to use Bug Club.
This week we have been using the clay to make clay teddy bears.
First we experimented with the clay, thinking about how we can shape the clay and the tools to create different textures.
Below are some photos, can you describe the clay to an adult at home? How did you shape it? What textures did you create and how?
In Art we have been using clay. We spent some time exploring and describing clay. Then we experimented with shape and texture.
Today we used our new skills to make clay teddy bears.
Can you explain to someone at home how you made and textured your teddy bear?
Today, 4A had a day dedicated to computing. Earlier this term, we wrote our own school prospectuses in English, and today we started to publish them!
Using X-Ray Goggles, we had a go at (pretending to) hack the school website. Changing the Winter Holiday dates was a popular decision!
The original version of the school website.
A “hacked” version of the school website.
We then experimented with different HTML code. Once we’d cracked this, we made a start on our own websites. The children used HTML codes to insert text and make changes to the appearance of the page, shown on the left hand side of the photos, with the web page view on the right hand side.

Year 3 were very busy this week creating their own Victorian museum. They showcased the learning that had taken place in class, displaying Victorian artefacts and producing posters and fact files for many aspects of Victorian life. There were many hands-on elements too, where people could try out sewing and make clay houses. The Victorian cooking certainly went down a treat, with biscuits and cakes available to sample.
Parents were invited to visit the museum and the children in Year 3 were happy to be our expert tour guides, sharing their knowledge and talking about the work they had produced.
Other classes in the school had opportunities to visit throughout the week and we would love to hear what you thought of our museum.
Today was our performance of Lights, Camel Action. Everyone was fantastic!
