In Science we have been learning about solids, liquids and gases.

We have been looking at how temperature can change the state of the material. We carried out an experiment whereby each table was given 2 blue ice cubes and 2 yellow ice cubes. We then made a prediction about what we think might happen using what we know and our scientific knowledge. We then made observations after every 10 minutes. We found that the ice cubes melted and the 2 colours mixed together causing the liquid to turn green.

In art we have been creating Celtic knots using 2 pencils. Here is some of our art work.


Welcome to Mars Class

  Welcome to class Mars!

This term we have been learning about the Rainforest. We have been looking at different habitats in the Rainforest and what animals may live there, why the Rainforest is so important to both animals and humans and comparing different climates around the world.

In English we have been learning all about deforestation. We then wrote a persuasive piece of writing about why trees should not be cut down and the importance of the Rainforest. We then read these out and performed them to the rest of the class.

After learning about the different habitats we may find in the Rainforest, we went outside to see what habitats and animals we could find in the school grounds. We then did an experiment to find out which habitat woodlice prefer out of soil, wood, rocks and leaves. The results showed that woodlice do in fact prefer a wooden habitat. We then produced bar charts to show our results.

We have been looking at the author and illustrator of Eric Carle who wrote and drew familiar pictures in books such as The Hungry Caterpillar. The children have been doing their own rainforest animals in the style of Eric Carle. Here are some examples.

 The children were asked to produce a piece of homework based around our topic. They then had a chance to present this and show it to the rest of the class. The children have put so much time and effort into this! Some of the pieces they produced were so creative and imaginative; we really enjoyed hearing all about them. Here are some examples.


Welcome back! We have started a new topic this term, Branston At War. 

We have already created some really effective silhouette war art by making a background with water colours and cutting a war themed silhouette out using black card.
We are really looking forward to our walk around Branston where we will learn loads of interesting facts about the history of our village.

In English we watched a clip from Carries War and have planned and written our own version of a story about a child being evacuated to the countryside. Earlier this term, we did loads of research about life in 1914 and created a non-chronological report using our facts. We also used this research to write a letter back to our father who was fighting in the war.

The whole school took part in a Christmas Carol Service at our local church. Some children from our class read part of the Christmas story, sang in the school choir and even played the handbells.
