Our achievements this week...
Congratulations to Halima for passing her grade 1 recorder exam. I know how hard you’ve practised and it’s certainly paid off. Well done!
Did you know...
Humans “see” when light that reflects off of objects reaches our eyes. Some colours send more light back so we see them better. For example, brightly coloured objects reflect more light than dark-coloured objects do. Fluorescent objects send out visible light when high-energy light shines onto them. Retro-reflective material—often referred to as reflective material, used on road signs and some safety gear, for example—bounces back almost all of the light that shines onto it.
During Science we investigated which colours best showed up in the dark and then with the help of torchlight. We were able to go into a pitch black makeshift cave to accurately investigate after we made our predictions. We had found that dark colours are not easily visible with little light and that shiny or fluorescent colours show up better due to them reflecting the light better than darker colours.
We realised that having a ‘cave’ in class was pretty cool and we also liked going in for a bit of ‘me time’ ☺️
Well done to Charley- for achieving this week's special mention for perseverance in Literacy. As well as this, Daniel and Jacob have gained more reading miles and Reece and Ava have achieved the golden ties for always good behaviour and work.

Great work Alex, Drew and George, for your super participation.

What a superb, intriguing afternoon we've had today! We have been learning about Henry V's battle at Agincourt! Henry V had a clever formation of his army and as a result he and his army won the battle against the French. In class, we've had the opportunity to draw his journey around France leading up to the battle, then we've drawn our own interpretations of the army formations for each side. Everyone said they'd really enjoyed this lesson, as did I, and we are looking forward to learning more next week.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the Easter break and is ready to start off our exciting Summer term. Our upcoming term is extremely thrilling, as we advance on to our learning about some of the great British battles throughout history. We shall start with; the battle of Agincourt, the battle of Wakefield (which was pretty close to us!), the battle of Tewesbury, the battle of Bosworth, the Spanish Armada, the battle of Waterloo, the battle of Somme and finally finishing with D-Day, the invasion of Normandy. I hope you're as elated as I am to learn about these fascinating elements of history. In other subjects, we shall be learning about Light then about Changing States including the Water Cycle in Science, Buddhism in RE and continuing our daily learning in Literacy, Numeracy and grammar.
I look forward to another fun-filled academic term and to seeing your continued hard work in class.
