Welcome back from Lion Class! It’s hard to believe that we are already in Summer Term!
This term our topic is:
Here is a wonderful picture drawn by Tosan Okomi of a dragon!
Here is a castle drawn by Todor Benov!
On our first day back we found a surprise!
We scooped up the egg and put it into a basket so we can look after it inside. So far it has not hatched!
We have also started our Knight training in science, looking at what we need to keep our bodies healthy. More pictures to follow!

Here are some more highlights from this year so far:
We created a Lion out of Paper Maché
Designed our own fish tanks for Superman when he gets bigger and gets some more friends!
We got a new class pet!
They are two Black Moor fish. We voted for the best names and decided on Superman and Nemo! Unfortunately after the snow we lost Nemo, but Superman is alive and well! We will miss him when he goes home with Miss Jones.
We saw some Ducklings hatch:
They were very cute but very noisy!
… and got very big!
because of the snow we only had a week with the ducklings. Luckily we are getting some more eggs next term!
We learnt about 3D shapes, went on a shape walk, and even made our bodies into 3D shapes:
Holly from Starfish Malawi came to visit us and told us about the animals that they have in Malawi We had a go at being animals ourselves! Here we are as snakes:
Mrs Lange taught us some signs for different animals:
We also went to the farm at New Line Learning Academy and saw some animals up close!
Finally we re-enacted scenes from QUIET! by Paul Bright. We re-enacted it so well that Mr Etheridge came to see what was happening.
We did some awesome superhero science – here is us looking at how long it takes to free a superhero from an ice burg:
We also had a Superhero dress up day! Even Miss Jones and Mrs Winch joined in:
Miss Jones as Captain Underpants Superhero Lions! Mrs Winch as Super LSA
At the end of Term 2 we recreated The Great Fire of London:
It was a little scary for the teachers but very exciting for us!

Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”

At the end of every lesson I know a bit more than before.
