Today, we created information reports to explain the important of trees in our environment. We presented them beautifully to the rest of the class.

We had a lovely time exploring our school grounds today. We were collecting data of creatures we could find. We then compared this to the data from our field trip to the woods. A wonderful time had by all!




Today, we explored contour lines on maps to locate areas of higher ground across the United Kingdom. We looked at how contour lines on maps can be used to show steep and/or steady inclines. We also played a game to match contour maps of mountains to pictures of the mountains. 

We finished our afternoon by constructing our own mountain using contour lines.

A lovely day walking to church for our harvest celebrations with Ester. We stopped in the field on our way back for a whole school sing a long. It was so lovely to all be back together again!



Wow! What a totally fabulous Monday we had at Chilcompton Sports Ground. We love being connected to our community - and what a superb venue for our cricket lesson AND Science lesson. Thank you for letting us use it! We look forward to being here every Monday.

Over the last week, we have been reading 'The Red Tree' by Shaun Tan. We decided to write poetry around the theme of ‘Hope’ to celebrate this text and the start of a new year in Gentian Class.

Today, we went on a field trip with Mrs Sumbler! What a fabulous time we had classifying animals in our local woodland. We collected data to use for our CREST award.What a variety of wonderful creatures we found. We were careful to make sure we left the environment as we found it.

Another lovely day enjoying the sunshine! Today, we were geographers and used OS maps to plan walking routes around our local area. We were reading grid references and using compass points to navigate. We also created our own maps of our local environment.



What a lovely afternoon we had enjoying the sunshine! We explored asexual reproduction in plants by taking cuttings to create genetically identical clones. Fingers crossed they grow!

Happy Friday!


Wow - what a wonderful first week back we've had! We have been super busy enjoying catching up with each other and with our learning.

This week, we spent some time looking at the different parts of flowers and how flowers reproduce. Today, we used origami to construct paper flowers. We thought carefully about the intricate nature of the parts inside a flower. We discussed which parts of the flower the inner folds could represent.
