What is a symbol of peace? Today we created our ideas of what a symbol of peace is to us, we  had lots of different ideas.
For our maths lessons this week we have been looking at types of charts for plotting information. We decided to do a traffic survey and create a tally chart. During our thirty minute survey between 9.20 and 9.50 we were surprised to see 46 cars and 23 other types of vehicles. Most shocking for us was the speed at which they were travelling outside our school.
In our RE lessons we have been looking at our feelings in different situations and how we feel about forgiveness and forgiving others.
Today in outdoor learning we have been looking at things that are dead, alive or never been alive as well as drawing them.
Our tadpoles are growing very quickly
This term in maths we have been looking at fractions
Its feeling like Christmas in the Woodpecker class, we have been very busy decorating!
All of us had a go at sawing wood to make our Christmas decorations out of natural materials.
In our maths lessons we have been partitioning tens and ones.
We went hunting for woodlice and created a new home for them. We have used different materials for them to live in and we will find out which they like best. We also made natural portraits of Guy Fawlkes.
We enjoyed a lovely autumn walk around the village.
In maths this term we have been looking at number
In our English lessons we are learning how to follow and write instructions, so we followed instructions to make playdough!
During outdoor learning we made monsters from our shadows, we have also identified different types of plants and trees and learnt the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees.
On a very wet Wednesday afternoon we made rain catchers and splashed in puddles.
