We tied ourselves up in knots this week when working on our fine motor skills! Knot (not) an easy task! In all seriousness, we were thinking about how we would survive in the wilds and what we would take with us. The know trying skills will come in very handy next time we do outdoor learning ...

In this term's RE, we are thinking about the creation story Vs science and wondering if they are complimentary or conflicting. We looked at the artwork of an artist who used symbolism to combine both arguments in a stained glass window. We then created our own glass windows and thought about the symbolism within them.

Week beginning 14th September 2020. This week, we took our learning outside when we searched the school grounds for insects, spiders, different types of trees and signs of birds and mammals. We found so many!
