Welcome to Magpie Class!
Welcome to our class page! We have a mixture of Year 5 and 6 children in our class. Miss Brown is our class teacher. Mrs Wilkinson works with us every morning.
Friday 29th March
As part of our topic (Darwin's Delights) we made some clay models of animals that can be found on the Galapagos Islands. Can you recognise any of the animals?
Tuesday 26th March - Tree Planting
Magpies had a mucky morning helping to put some mulch around the trees that were planted in the school field earlier this year. We had a great time!
Friday 22nd March - Dog's Trust
We had a great time with Helen from The Dog's Trust. We solved a mystery and learnt how to (and how not to) behave around dogs.
Thursday 7th March - WORLD BOOK DAY
Magpies love to read. Take a look at our favourite books!
Monday 4th March - Book Week
For Book Week this year we have been reading Firebird which is a celebration of Igor Stravinsky's classic ballet. We really enjoyed the story and have learnt about the characters and written character descriptions. The pictures below show our acrostic poems of the Firebird and in the background you can see our pastel sketches.
Thursday 28th February & Friday 1st March - Darwin's Delights Hook Day
For our hook day we were visited by Pets at Home and some of their reptiles, it was very interesting and we learnt lots of new facts. We also played snakes and ladders, went on a snake hunt (some of them were hidden very well!) and also on a mini beast hunt in our woodland area.
Monday 14th January - Science Week
Today we were joined by Major Tom who gave us a space mission. Each year group had to solve their problem so that we could work out who the next British astronaut would be. Magpie class enjoyed working through their problems and we had a lot of fun during our workshop!
Friday 11th January - Hook Day
Today we had our Revolution Hook Day. We were able to experience what it was like at a Victorian school. The teachers were very strict and the classrooms were dull! Take a look at the pictures below to see what a fantastic time we had!
Friday 23rd November - Grandparent Afternoon
Thank you to all of the grandparents that joined us! We had a lovely afternoon.
Take a look at the pictures below to see what we were up to!
Blood Heart Hook Day!
Our topic for term 2 is Blood Heart. We were extremely lucky to have Dr Bosher (the Chair of Governors) with us for an afternoon. He showed us hearts, lungs and a liver, which we were able to hold. We learnt so many new things about the heart and how it works. The experience was amazing - and a little gory!
The end of our Topic - Scream Machine!
Magpie class designed and made theme park rides out of scrap materials. We faced several problems but overcame them using team work and resilience. Take a look at the pictures below!
Scream Machine Hook Day!
What a fun afternoon!
