Richard III trip


At the Richard III visitor's centre, we had the opportunity to analyse various sources of information to form an opinion as to if he was a good king or bad king. 

Exploring the exhibition, we found out more about the life of Richard III, saw where his body was discovered and went into Leicester Cathedral to see his final resting place. 

The World in our Hands: Year 4/5 Fabulous Finish!

We welcomed parents, grandparents and siblings into class to watch the premieres of our Iron Man films. We showed them our topic books and all of our learning this term. 


BBC Weather Presenters!

We were visited by the team from BBC weather, Alex and Eddie, and all the children had the opportunity to either read the news or direct or present the weather. They learnt about the science behind meteorology. Back in the classroom, we wrote weather reports from climate zones around the world.
