We have been looking at how to create light and shadow within our drawings and looking at the different types of patterns created on the bark. Our next step is to create our own sketch of a winter tree.

The children have really settled in well to their final year at Whitley Abbey Primary School. We have all been working hard and got back into the school routine.

On Friday we had our WOW Day where we explored the 'Frozen Kingdom'. Children came to school in extra warm clothes and spent the day exploring ice! We expanded our imaginations by watching and photographing the ice. We had the opportunity to devise and conduct our own icy science ​experiments, made our own versions of the Titanic and then created icy pictures to inspire our poetry skills.


Placing our icebergs in the frozen kingdom!


​Measuring how much of our icebergs are above and below the water.

Sailing our boats around the icebergs. 


We have been doing a lot of work looking at Growth Mindset and how we can grow our brains. We have throught about how we can improve our outlook and keep a positive energy both inside and outside the classroom. 


We have all been working hard to try and get our work on the 'Wall of Fame'
