Monday 5th February - Friday 9th February 2018


We have been very busy making Iron Man models. As you can see we had to concentrate very hard on cutting out the complex design! We are now ready to follow a set of instructions to complete the models. Watch this space!




Monday 29th January - Friday 2nd February 2018


We really enjoyed performing our class assembly today. Thank you to everyone who came to watch it. As you heard we have learnt lots of facts about electricity and especially how to keep safe. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!





Monday 22nd January - Friday 26th January 2018


We have been learning about The Iron Man. We particularly enjoyed reading the first chapter where the Iron Man stands on the brink of the cliff. We have used collage and paper tearing techniques to recreate this scene from the book. As you can see this is a work in progress and are looking forward to seeing our completed creations.





Monday 15th January - Friday 19th January 2018


As part of our Iron Man unit we created a Conscious Ally to persuade the character Hogarth that they should or should not trap the Iron Man. The children discussed their reasons for or against in their groups and presented their ideas.



We have been continuing our electricity topic in science this week. Today we had fun using equipment to build our own circuits. We had to decide whether the circuits were complete or incomplete and give reasons why. As you can see from our pictures, if the circuit was complete the bulbs lit up!







Monday 8th January - Friday 12th January 2018


In science this week we have been learning about electricity. We sorted everyday electrical appliances into categories, deciding whether they were powered by mains, battery, both or neither. The results were very interesting!





4th - 5th January 2018


In Cockle 4 this week we have been sharing our achievements of 2017. Some children in the class presented their achievement to their peers. As you can see, there are some very talented pupils in our class! We have also been thinking about the qualities that make a successful learning partner which we will be following during this term at school.

Thank you to all the adults who joined us. I know the children loved visiting our class.



In science this week we have been investigating different melting points. We carried out an experiment where we tested how long it took for chocolate to melt in three different temperatures of water.




Monday 20th November – Friday 24th November 2017


In gymnastics this week we have been practising our back and forward rolls on the matts, using the springboard to half turn and using the bench to do cartwheels.



We have been reading the story of Escape from Pompeii. We thought of synonyms for the word 'shake' and used these to create a poem about an earthquake. The children performed these with our learning partners to the rest of the class.
