We had a lovely afternoon on Friday doing all sorts of fun activities. The children got to have a play on MS Paint on the laptops; they investigated some illustrations ready for creating their own in computing later on in the term; proved their expertise at matching up minibeasts and went on a little bug hunt in the wonderful sunshine.
The most impressive part of the afternoon though were the incredible mini beasts they all created from plasticine.
Lets see if they can spot their creations!
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and here’s to another week!
Rabbits and Owls
What a wonderful day to spend at Dover Castle!
Is that a blue sky??
In the morning, Rabbits toured the Keep trying to see how many items they could spot on their alphabet challenge. Many stairs were climbed and it was certainly worth it for the impressive view from the top.
Meanwhile, Owls took on the medieval tunnels and a walk up to the cannons. It was such a steep descent and climb but with the glorious sunshine it was a great way to spend the morning.
Rabbits testing out the strength of the cannons
Our learning the day before about the features of a castle proved useful and it was good to see what battlements actually looked like at the top of the tower, or the drawbridge as we entered the castle.
Owls ready to tour the Keep
With the weather on our side we could picnic out in the open before we swapped over to do the other activity before we left to return to school.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we are excited to see where our learning for the rest of the term will take us.

Follow this link to try some Science at home.
The children have loved thinking and investigating Science this week. We have looked at roots for our topic, make gloop and talked about how it feels and looks and been investigators.
The Sandgate school run this morning!
It reminded one of our Year 4 students of an L.S Lowry painting! Beautiful.
Thank you to the parents who sent it in.
Yesterday the children read ‘Pengiunpig’ and talked about how to stay safe on the internet. They then made posters to help others to remember to: Think before they click, Always ask an adult and Don’t believe everything on the internet.
