Rayne has been inspired by the volcanoes in Iceland and has produced this super artwork. By melting crayons with the heat from a hair dryer, he managed to create this amazing lava effect. I am very impressed with your creativity Rayne. Well done.
Sebastian sent in his amazing picture of Marvin the troll. He also wrote a very detailed description of him. A great piece of writing to end a super home learning half term. Well done.
Sebastian accepted this week's outdoors challenge with his brother Zachary. Sebastian made the bird and Zachary the reindeer. I think they both look fantastic and am sure you will agree. Well done boys!
The Ministry of Defence spend a lot of time planning and researching what makes a good aircraft. Your science this week put you in the position of pilot and engineer as you had to try and discover what type of plane would fly best. Looking at material and size, Jenson had great fun exploring this activity. As school science lead, I love seeing all the science that you have been doing at home. Well done Jenson!
Rayne and Isabella have both been working through the perimeter work set this week. When we get back to school, we will have to work out the perimeter of the playground - what do you think it could be?
As well as having lots of fun in the snow this week, Harry has been very busy working on his maths and literacy. Keep up the good work!
Isabella really enjoyed learning about volcanoes and Iceland. Check out this amazing model she made to show how eruptions happen. I love the detail. Well done Isabella!
It has been wonderful to receive your snowy adventure photos. Thank you for sharing them with me.
Iceland has over 200 volcanoes and has one-third of the Earth's total lava flow. Our theme this week is all about trolls and Iceland, so to help understand how volcanoes erupt, Jenson has made this amazing model. Watch the video below to see it in action.
Tom has been getting creative at home with his K'Nex. He got an instruction book of different things to make but enjoys seeing what he can make without it. Here he is with a bear he made. It is always lovely to see what else you have been getting up to.
Sebastian has also been inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi. The festival is very colourful as it celebrates Spring, love and new life. Check out the amazing and very colourful car he painted. I love the easel.
Aimee has been playing maths games with the added incentive of chocolate buttons! She has also been working hard on her measuring work this week. I think I need to play a game of this!

Sebastian and Zachary took their maths outdoors today and created this excellent tally chart of all of the animals they saw. 52 swans is a lot. I look forward to walking by this river and seeing the animals for myself when we can. Until then, it is so lovely receiving photos of you on your adventures. Fresh air and exercise is so good for us. What adventures have you had this week?
Harry also enjoyed exploring science and music. He had great fun playing tunes on the glasses as he learnt about sound, pitch and vibration. Well done Harry!
I received this email from Rory which has made me very excited for lunch (although I am not sure my bread will be as nice as his!) It is so good to see you all learning new skills at home. Keep up the good work.
Inspired by National Storytelling Week, Sebastian has written this wonderful story with a lovely meaning. When we work together and help one another, there is no need for anyone to feel sad and alone. He also made a prop for his story using junk modelling.

It is always wonderful to see how creative you are being at home. Here is Isabella having an art afternoon at home. I can't wait until we can all do some art together in school.
Rayne also sent in this super video exploring pitch and vibration linking science to music. It is so lovely to see you all taking part in the hands on science activities at home. Keep up the good work class 3!
Jenson sent in this fantastic video of him exploring pitch and vibration. He managed to play 'Happy Birthday' using the glasses and the water. Really exciting science here - well done!
Klayton really enjoyed exploring pitch and vibration linking science and music. He learnt all about how sound is made and had great fun learning to play a tune on the glasses. Great effort Klayton!
Freya has written this wonderful story as part of 'National Storytelling Week'. I love how she has described the goblins as having 'evil red eyes'. It really helps me as the reader to create an image of the characters in my head. Well done Freya.
