Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break.
We've had a fantastic first day of the term. We started off by using our detective skills to work out different silhouettes of animals. In maths, we revisited counting by helping a new farm opening in Sheffield to count how many animals they need.

Welcome back to school....it has been lovely to see you all!
We have had a fun week so far, focussing on settling activities. We have spent time sharing our holiday news. We have designed new posters for our 'Golden Rules' display. This morning we talked about our swimming lessons and the rules that we need to follow. We also designed new peg labels. We have all spent time in our mainstream class and have enjoyed getting to know our new teachers.
Our last day as a class and with our wonderful y6s! It was certainly emotional but we’ve had lots of fun. We made our own picnic and performed ‘This is Me’ for each other. We were a bit shy on camera but we think it’s worth entering into the talent show!
The staff in the IR wish all the children a fantastic summer, they have worked so hard and we are so proud of them! We’ll miss you y6! But know you’ll go on to have an amazing time at your new school. Enjoy the holiday!
Special awards and a special party - what a lovely day!
Preparing for our next topic by creating a collage of the world!

Thank you for bringing your toys! We made fantastic collages!
What a lovely start to the day!
We got busy creating adverts for our toys (see this week’s homework); worked on our addition skills; went swimming and did a bit of painting too!
We made it to the Tri—Golf tournament!

More Boccia today! This time we used blindfolds and had to listen really carefully to the bell inside the jack ball to work out where to aim.
This afternoon we worked on he Y6 enterprise project while the rest of us went swimming. It was a great day for working as a team - well done everyone!
What a lovely day!
The toymaker left us instructions to fix his clock and write a diary for him. We described the dolls we made and had a wonderful time in mainstream where between us we took part in Science, music, computing and P4C.

Today we received a surprise! A magic key that opened the door to a Toymaker’s Workshop!
We searched for the right door that the key would fit, then found boxes waiting for us inside! We used the items to make our own toys! A play shop, robots, a car, a train and a dinosaur!
The Toymaker was so impressed with our skills he’s gone on holiday! We are now the Toymaker’s apprentices! It’s our job to keep the workshop going until he returns!

It was a very emotional day for us as we said goodbye to Mrs Cantrill who is stepping back from teaching to spend more time with family - and the dogs!
We had a party to celebrate (after a bit of tricky maths work).
We will miss you Mrs Cantrill!

Y3 got our Sports Science week off to a great start!
Fun Friday! We’ve had some great show and tells and created art in the style of Tanzanian artist Edward Saidi Tingatinga.
We wrote fact files about African animals based on our story, Handa’s Surprise.
Today we went shopping! As part of our work on money we worked out what change we would need to buy the items we wanted.
This afternoon we went swimming and use the physio ball to exercise! It was lots of fun!

We've had a busy day as the school photographer has been in! We had photos with the IR and with our mainstream class.
Y3 and Y4 have also been rehearsing hard for their production on Friday.
Happy World Book Day! The whole school was buzzing with stories and fantastic costumes: from Fantastic Mr Fox to the Cat in the Hat!
Miss Honey aka Mrs Longbottom was nervous to discover the Trunchball (Mrs Stringer) was in the classroom next door, but we survived the day - even though none of the teacher’s computers were working!
We explored some of our favourite books through sensory play; shared our chosen books with each other; used objects to inspire our own story writing and got to write poetry with a professional poet!
2 very different days today!
Were you on a trip on Ethel Barge or measuring with cubes?
And what was that pesky monkey up to?
Our y5s have had a fabulous few days: walking the night line (blindfolded!); racing down a zip wire; climbing low ropes and high ropes; taking part in archery
Wednesday 6th March
Weighing fruit for Handa's basket.
Handa wants to take 7 fruits to share with her friend Akeyo.
We collected lots of fab vocab to describe the look, feel, smell and taste of these exotic fruits! What’s you’re favourite?
Monday 25th February
Thank you Y3-6LH for a lovely first day back!
In English we made a prediction about what would happen in our story, Handa's Surprise - no peeking to find out yet! We enjoyed hearing about each others' holidays and this afternoon in mainstream between us we did English, topic, Spanish and PE! What a day!
Wishing everyone a lovely holiday - see you on the 25th!

We learnt about St Valentine and his letter to his love Julia and created our own crafts.
In mainstream, Y3 built Stone Age houses, which were very impressive!
