On Friday we took part in Sport Relief by running a mile (five times around the field). Some people managed to run two miles! In the morning, we took part in a handball lesson, which was lots of fun. Check out the photos below.




Well a lot has changed since we got back from Christmas, as Mrs McGettrick is off to have her baby in January, Mr Thoburn is now our teacher!

This half term in Literacy we are reading The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross

Week 1
The first week back we got straight into working hard.

Week 2
This week in Science we dissected a flower, as we are learning about the life cycle of a plant. First we had to learn about the parts of the flower and their function. Then we got to carefully dissect the flower to find the different parts!
