This week Oak class have been writing Remembrance poems.

The children have been looking at bibles this week and learning how to find the chapter and verses they are looking for.

Each child created a wanted poster to find the Messiah after reading parts from the prophets Isaiah and Micah from the Old Testament

We have been learning about the Maya beliefs this week. The children were fascinated!

In D&T, Oak class have been learning about frame structures. In groups the children made bird boxes to put up around the school. 

For many children this was the first time having to measure accurately, use saws and assemble their finished design. The children should be really proud of their work!
