Thank you Ruby Class! 🌈❤️

So the year has come to an end, thank you Ruby Class for an amazing year! You have all worked so hard this year and I want you to know that I have enjoyed every moment of teaching you. I’ll miss you all, even the chatterboxes (you know who you are!).

I hope you can take what you have learned this year and build on it. Best of luck for for Year 4!

Soil Detectives

Today Ruby class were investigating soil to find out what it is, why we need soil and how it is formed.

We went into the garden to find out more. The children had fun discovering what lives in soil and what it consists of. In class we sorted through trays of soil and found snails, woodlice and other creepy crawlies amongst the organic matter.

Roman Day: Tuesday, 7th June!

We’re going to launch our Summer 2 learning with a Roman Day! Children are invited to come into school dressed up as a Roman citizen. Some ideas for costumes can be found above – grab a white t-shirt and wrap a belt around it for an easy go-to, or add a pop of colour with a scarf. The possibilities are endless! We look forward to seeing everyone’s fantastic costumes when we return from Half Term!

Ruby class were investigating capacity this week, using different size containers to measure liquids. The children have identified the correct units of measurements, using these to measure and compare. They were able to deduce that containers of different shapes can still hold the same capacity of liquid.

We Are Petrologists!

Today Ruby class were testing rocks for permeability, hardness and calcites.

We learnt that petrologists study rocks, and that all rocks are different and distinctive.
