Spanish - January 2018

We really enjoyed finding out about the Spanish New Year tradition of 'Doce Uvas' (12 grapes). This tradtion involves a bell chiming 12 times at midnight and on every chime eating a quarter of a grape until our mouths were full!


The children have been investigating how light works.  They used mirrors in their investigations.  The children were amazed by how many reflections they were able to see when adjusting the angles of the mirrors.

Samba drumming performance


Thank you to all who came to our Autumn term music share.  We hope you were impressed with the skills we had learned so far in Samba drumming. We are going to use our evaluations with Mr Collings next term to help us to improve our playing.

Bread Making

As part of our Design & Technology project year 3 have been designing their own style of bread.  They chose different flavours and added other ingredients to make it truly their own.  We then had an afternoon where they were able to create and sample their bread designs.


We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.


We have enjoyed starting to learn Spanish this term and already know how to talk about ourselves and greet each other in Spanish.  We can say how we feel and how old we are. The last two weeks of this term have been spent learning about Christmas traditions in Spain.

Below are some links to games we have played in class.  Try and play some at home!
