Some pupils were able to measure the distance traveled and to make predictions about how far the car would go!

World Book Day (2nd March 2017). We had a lot of fun dressing up as our favourite characters. We read the story 'Where the Wild Things Are' and did lots of activities including writing a class poem about what we do when we feel WILD, making monster masks and monster feet!

24th February. Super proud of the whole of Blue Class. Not only did they write and illustrate their own book, they acted out the story in front of the whole school and were absolutely FABULOUS.

25th January. As part of our RE topic on Special Places we visited the Gurdwara in Kempston. We had a look at the Diwan room and saw shrine for the Guru Granth Sahib. We were treated to a lovely snack in the Langar and were given the opportunity to try some traditional sweets.

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday. The children obviously had a wonderful break and have come back full of stories of their Christmas celebrations. Our topic this term is Toys. If any children would like to bring in a toy to show the class (maybe a favourite Christmas present) it would be great! We will be finding out about how different toys work (wind up, battery, remote control, wind etc) and also looking at the history of toys. Maybe you have some of YOUR old toys at home you would be willing to let us borrow?

October - What a beautiful day for a walk around Marston Vale. We enjoyed looking at all the beautiful Autumn colours.

October Science: We have been learning about waterproof materials. We covered boxes in different types of material and hid a tissue inside. We 'watered' the boxes. If the tissue was dry, we knew the material was waterproof. We had a lot of fun doing this experiment! We used the results to help us design and make a waterproof cape for a doll!
