Science 1
Science 2
In Science, we have been learning about lots of different stones.  We have been describing their properties! We then moved on to looking at how fossils are formed.
In our music lesson, we learnt some notes on the glockenspiels.  We learnt to use C, G and A to play along to our class song.  We loved it!  We are looking forward to being able to sing and play at the same time!

We made Christmas cards, wrote a message and then delivered them to our local residents.  We had a lovely time making someone else's day!

A mystery shoe has appeared in our classroom! We are using our question starters to speculate where it came from! After seeing the pantomime at Everyman Theatre, we think it might be Cinderella's!

PCSO Jon Glover talking to us about anti-bullying. We learnt about what bullying is, the affect it has on others and the consequences of being a bully - individually and in groups. We learnt that it is important not to follow others and make our own choices!

School Beat Police Officer

Last week, a robbery was in progress at St Thomas More School.  Our KS2 police team investigated a broken window—the setting needed to be taped with police tape and evidence was     collected as a silver bracelet had vanished from a jewellery shop window! The KS2 Police Team investigated CCTV tapes, took finger prints and DNA and used a trained (pretend) police dog to find the suspect—it was Mrs Hibell! We even got to use REAL handcuffs! Mrs Hibell showed great remorse so we forgave her for her actions. Written by Klaudia, Y4 and Zofia and Maisy, Y3.


We have been exploring group balances in PE.  We combined our balances together to make a sequence.  We then practised different jumps and tried to beat our Personal Best.

Health Activator

Each week, we have been working with Mr Heepey, our school Health Activator.  Each week we have had a different focus - emotions, listening, friendship and stress.  This week we had a great time making our own stress balls to help us relax in stressful situations!
We wrote letters to Mrs Tippen asking her for a class pet.  She said YES!  We are now the proud owners of a pet Hamster, who we have named Snowball as he is write and fluffy! We love him! We have written instructions to tell people how to care for hamsters and written a non-chronological report about hamsters. Snowball has taught us about responsibilities and caring for God's creatures.

We following instructions to make a James and the Giant Peach craft.  Then our parents came in to help us! We had a great day.  Following these instructions helped us to write our own instructions!

Random Act of Kindness

As part of Wellbeing Week, we drew a picture and packaged it up with a sweet treat! We then delivered the package to our local residents to boost their wellbeing and make their day! It made us feel good too!
