Our African print pencil cases

Pencil cases

As part of our Africa topic, we looked at African patterns and experimented with different patterns and colours when printing. We decided on a pattern we thought worked really well and then printed onto fabric. After that, we practised different sewing stitches, such as running, back and whip stitch. It was quite difficult! Then we sewed our printed fabric at the seams to make a pencil case and added either buttons or Velcro as a fastening. We were really pleased with our achievements!

World Book Day

We had a great day on World Book Day. We dressed up as our favourite characters and decorated wooden spoons as book characters. We worked in our House groups and had a wonderful, creative time. All the spoons were displayed in Celebration assembly for the whole school to enjoy.



As part of our theme of Africa, we had a talk all about the Big Five animals found in Kenya. The children were fascinated by the photos and videos shared by Peter and his amazing stories of his life in Kenya.


We have made our own dyes just like the Vikings! We used red cabbage, beetroot, blackberries, spinach, carrots and brown onions. We dyed pieces of fabric and then used them with other fabrics such as ribbon, raffia and wool to create a decorative weaving. It took a lot of concentration!

Times Table Rockstar Day!

We had a fun time on Times Table Rockstar Day! We dressed up as rockstars and had a rockstar parade. We then had some time in the classroom learning how to use TTRS and lots of times table practice. Remember you can practise at home as well and login details are inside the front cover of reading records.

Trip to Leighton Moss Nature Reserve

We had a wonderful time at Leighton Moss Nature Reserve in Silverdale. We had beautiful weather to view the birds from the viewing platform and bird hides. We saw so many different kinds of birds such as marsh harriers, swans, ducks, gulls and robins. We also enjoyed pond dipping and observed lots of different pond creatures like dragonfly larvae, pond snails and water boatmen. We had a great time!

Viking Workshop with Imagining History

The Imagining History team visited us for a Viking workshop. We did lots of drama activities, such as creating a Viking longship and pretending to be Vikings raiding lands. We looked at replica Viking objects that gave us information about the Vikings and also made a timeline of events in Viking and Anglo-Saxon history. It was great fun!

We went on a minibeast hunt in the school grounds. We looked at microhabitats such as under rocks, logs, leaves and in the grass. We drew and described the microhabitats and counted how many minibeasts we found there. We then drew pictograms to show our data clearly.
