Thank you to all parents and carers for your support with homework, reading, spellings, trips, etc, etc, this year!

Scratch Predator Games
As the finale to our Predators topic, we made predators using images of our friends and family members' heads, placed them in their habitat and gave them some prey to eat in a Scratch game that we programmed.
The screenshots are shown below. You can also use Scratch at home. You need the software (free download from: https://scratch.mit.edu/)
Classifying Living Things
We made posters and branching databases to show how scientists classify living things in different ways.
Predators! Owl Day:
We were very lucky to begin our new topic by meeting four owls brought by Mr Morley, an experienced handler. Gizmo, Archie, Milligan and Ronnie delighted pupils and adults alike and we all learnt so much about these birds. A great start to our Predators topic this term.
We dressed up as Celtic Gods, Goddesses, Kings, Queens and warriors. Our parents and carers came to school to watch our presentations and look at all of the work we have been doing on Prehistoric Britain.
TREMORS! As the finale to our topic on volcanoes, we made volcano shelters and survival kits. Then the siren went off and the volcano erupted! Our shelters got pelted with 'lava bombs', tremors and an ash cloud, but they stood firm!
We then made our own volcanoes and made them erupt using the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar reaction. The villages below were largely unaffected!
