Aztec Masks: Just after half-term we finished making our Aztec-inspired masks during our Art lessons with Mrs Waller.


In English, we used a short video about an elderly lady living in a junkyard to do all sorts of different writing. Attached is one of the poems written to describe the junkyard from her perspective using similes and metaphors.

Fireworks Art: Working with Mrs Waller, we collaborated on a large art piece using neon paints to show the night’s sky during Bonfire Night.


Mexico Fact file: In Geography, we are learning about Mexico and comparing and contrasting it to our lives in England. This is an excellent fact file produced in one of our lessons giving all sorts of information about Mexico.



Maths Problem Solving: In Maths, we explored different problem solving questions, using our mathematical thinking to explore number mazes, sort cards, or plan letter about a school trip.
