We worked as a team to plan a fantastic class assembly for our parents and the rest of the school... We did an evacuee catwalk, showed our artwork, read our writing out loud, performed a World War 2 rock song and even quizzed the audience!

To learn about the circulatory system, we pretended our classroom was a giant body. We wore hats to tell us which role to play. There are many parts involved in the circulatory system: the heart, the brain, the lungs and our blood (both oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood cells).

We planned and delivered a Remembrance assembly to the whole school. We taught them why we wear poppies, read some war poetry and sang a song children used to sing during World War 2. We also made sure everyone understood why the silence held at 11am is so important.

It's Friendship week! We used shaving foam to understand how, just like words out of our mouth, once it's out, it can never go back in! We also thought about the invisible hurt left behind when we are unkind. Finally, we designed the perfect friend. We are going to cover our classroom door with examples of good friendship skills this week...

E-Safety... We had an e-safety afternoon today. We had a debate about what is and isn't appropriate to write/send/post/share using technology. We realised that we have a digital footprint and everything we post will be around forever and could be shared by others...

Charlotte brought a real gas mask in to show us. It was made in 1938. Did you know that gas bombs weren’t used in Great Britain during World War 2 but everyone was encouraged to carry a gas mask just in case?
