Moortown Arctic Tundra Expedition

On Wednesday we had a visit from Mr Fotheringham of the National Geographical Society. He told us all about the strange Tundra found in Moortown and how a meteorite may have landed there. He shared how we could explore the tundra, from the provisions needed, routes to take and the surveys we could carry out.

3S set off on their expedition passing some interesting sights on the way and eventually found the meteor.


This week we had a visitor who helped us explore a traditional Finnish tale, called Lemminkainen.

The children first listened to a beautiful retelling from Mathew, adding to the story with song.

Next they acted out the story for themselves.

Finally in groups they retold the story using shadow puppets.

This story will be the focus of our writing over the coming weeks, where we will get to apply all the fantastic language and knowledge we gained this week.

World Book Day

This week we are celebrating World Book Day. It takes place on the 5th of March 2021. It is a fantastic event to celebrate the fabulous power of books and the joy of reading. If you love reading or just starting your journey as a book lover, you can celebrate the event in lots of ways and put some thoughts into how to encourage others to read more.
Freya just started celebrating the event by making a fantastic figure of Harry Potter made out of potato and she has joined David Williams amazing assembly.

The best way to celebrate this day would be to find the time to do some reading. Do you have a book you just can’t finish? The World Book Day is the time to curl up on the sofa and enjoy every last page.

Mr. Spink celebrates the day with his favorite book called “Thousand splendid suns” by Khaled Hosseini.

Me and my children are currently reading “Detektyw Pozytywka” as I am trying really hard to introduce my mother language to them.

Remember books can be your best friends and can take you inside unforgettable world of adventure!

Fantastic home learning

You have al submitted such wonderful home learning over the last week. here are some great pieces. Well done everyone!

Instead of drawing a reflective hi-vis outfit Alex actually made one:

Madeleine has been resilient like Batman this week when working on her maths! Well done you!

Noah has been capitalising on his continents and oceans learning from KS1. Great job!

Freya was really like Gandalf when I asked her to reflect on her SPO and check she had 2A ideas in her plan. She then used this to write a fantastic paragraph to describe why winter is treacherous.

Benjamin, Madeleine and Amber did some great thinking about the Banksy painting ‘Girl with Balloon’ and then recreated it. Well done.

It was lovely to receive some video and recordings of you reading your work so confidently. Well done to Luca..
