3G have been making clay houses!
First, we drew a Victorian house near the school. After that, we carefully recreated it using clay!
Today, we read the story ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert before going on our Autumn Walk to Ladywell Park. We looked carefully for different signs of the season. We saw squirrels, a robin and we collected leaves, sticks and conkers!
Can you remember the different signs of Autumn?
The Year 4s have had a brilliant half term with the hockey coach, and we’ve had some really exciting games.
If any children are interested in joining the Honor Oak Panthers hockey club, here’s a link to their website https://honoroakpanthershc.com/. More flyers will be coming in after half term for anyone else who is interested.
Have a lovely half term Year 4!!
There’s never a dull moment in Year 6 and today wasn’t any different. After working hard all term, we enjoyed an outing to Forest Hill School to meet the world famous writer Andy Briggs.
Andy told us about his job as a writer and the exciting adventures he has had all over the world to research material for his stories. Remember the elephant fleas? a gorilla’s scent? and the fact that bananas aren’t really bananas?!? Life as a writer definitely sounds far more exciting than we had ever imagined!
After talking about his adventures, Andy told us how he uses his ideas to create stories. He has recently modernised the Tarzan series and his collection of books based on an inventory of gadgets sounds intriguing.
Some of us ordered a signed copy of his latest book ‘Drone Racer’. We can’t wait to read it and are looking forward to getting some Andy Briggs books for our book corner.
