Yesterday we started looking at Macbeth in our English. We spent all morning:
A fantastic time was had by all at the John Moore Museum today. We have learnt about how a Tudor merchant would have lived by exploring a Tudor house; learnt how Tudor houses were built and studied the strange methods used by Tudor doctors. Take a look below!

This afternoon, we spent some time in the Woodland Workshop identifying and attempting to find all of the colours of the rainbow in nature. How successful do you think we were...?
The Christmas Fair on Friday was a huge success. Thank you to all the parents that came along to support us in Elder class and well done to all of the Year 6s who set up and ran a wonderful collection of stalls.

This afternoon, we were lucky enough to have a Diwali dance workshop where we retold the story from the Ramayana. Have a look at some of the pictures from our amazing dance below...
