We have spent the week going through our oral story, ‘Blood Village’ and creating a story map for it. The story walks us through what it might have been like to discover iron after living in the Bronze Age. We also re-enacted the story in groups and performed them to the class.
We also continued with our music lessons this week and performed a rendition of the Queen song, ‘We Will Rock You’!
Beech will class will be going on another class trip next half term as part of our study into the iron age. On Wednesday 4th March, we will be visiting the Museum of London. This will be a whole day trip. If you are able to volunteer, please let the office know as soon as possible.
In science, we concluded our topic on light by making shadow puppets. After doing an experiment to see how to make a shadow bigger, we put on an elaborate puppet show, with Mr. Oyewole on lighting!

Mr. Oyewole’s weekly challenge
This week’s challenge is a tongue twister. Anyone who can quickly perform the tongue twister to the class without any mistakes will receive 10 house points! (You will only be allowed three attempts)
Moses supposes his toeses are roses
But Moses supposes erroneously
For nobody’s toeses are posies of roses
but Moses supposes his toeses to be!
The only homework this week is to practise your oral stories using your story maps; to have lots of fun; and to make sure that you relax!
Finally, an early “happy birthday!” to Kian, Adam and our Beech class “twins”, Ayden and Lilly!
Have a lovely half term!
