Autumn 2 2023



In science, we have been finding out more about the circulation system. We began by making blood to help us understand what blood is made from.

In science, we have also been investigating how our pulse rate can be effected by exercise. We completed different exercises for 1 minute and then checked our pulse rate. Star jumps and running increased our pulse rate significantly.

Book club  


This year, we have introduced book club where we talk about, discuss and share our favourite books. Each week, a child gets to choose their favourite biscuit to share with the class.








In our novel time. we have been reading the novel - Wonder. Wonder is a powerful story of a 10-year-old boy named August Pullman, who has a facial anomaly. He is an ordinary kid who plays Xbox, is obsessed with Star Wars, but despite the 27 operations done for his face he will never look normal.  The novel has realluy made us think about how we treat others.
