Hello everyone!! Despite the rain, hailstones and wind everyone is having a great time. Pasta Bol and ice-cream for dinner was a big success with some children even having salad. Yesterday we either climbed and abseiled or mountain biked and went on the Big zipper. Today are team tasks and a swap round of yesterday’s […]
Today we began to think about Easter. Our unit of work is based around why Good Friday is called ‘Good’. We began by thinking about what we already know about Easter and then moved onto what we would like to know. There were some very interesting questions about whether Jesus knew he was going to […]
This week we began our science topic of ‘Living things’. We began by sorting pictures of various objects and deciding whether we thought they were alive or not. The discussions were brilliant, with lots of explanations and great scientific vocabulary. Some objects we thought were obvious such as a worm but others such as antlers […]
At Scole, we really like to celebrate our successes and hard work. In class 4 we do this by taking a ‘selfie’ and then displaying it in our classroom. Any member of the class can choose when to take a ‘selfie’ of themselves and a piece of work they are particularly proud of. It may […]

We began by sharing what we already knew and it became clear that there were many misconceptions throughout the class. The children took this subject very seriously and asked excellent questions such as ‘If we now know that smoking can […]

This week in SPaG lessons we have been learning about hyphens. We have spotted any hyphens when reading independently and have added them to our ‘SPaG Spotter’ display. We’ve found more than we anticipated!
In science we have been learning about nutrition and digestion. This week we have focussed on the nutrients in our food: carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fats etc. The children worked really hard and then used their understanding to create a food pyramid, putting in the food that they eat into each section so that they could […]
In art, the children have been learning about Mayan masks. They have designed some of their own which they will eventually make into an actual mask. Many of the children were so proud of their achievements that they took a ‘selfie’ to put on our wall.
