Magic Lantern

We have had an exciting start to the year in Doves class. We have been busy trying to build structures out of paper cups which will take our weight, designing our own Doves of Peace and ordering ice creams in French!


Our topic this term is called Grand Designs and we will going back in time to Ancient Greece and learning about their architects, sculptors, artists, philosophers, inventors and engineers. Please see our Curriculum Map below for more details. We can't wait to welcome you into school for our Class Assembly and Open Morning on Monday 15th November so you can see what else we have been getting up to! 


Making Clay Pinch Pots from Leo and the Gorgon's Curse

Last week was science week and we had lots of fun! We explored lots of areas of science from light and dark to chemical reactions! Please see below for pictures of our week!

This term we are exploring light in science. Today we conducted an experiment to find out which material had the most reflective surface.

Last night The BFG came back to collect his dreams. He very kindly left us all some snozzcumbers to say thank you!

We have had a mysterious visitor to our classroom over the holidays. They left a very old-looking briefcase. When we looked inside we discovered lots of labelled jars filled with sparkly liquid. We think that our visitor was the BFG! We wrote him letters to tell him where he had left his briefcase. We hope he finds it!
