We also said goodbye to Wiktoria today who we will really miss having in our class. We wish her all the best for her move to Poland and hope she will write and tell us of her adventures.

Zephaniah have had a very busy first week back. We have written a recount of our holidays in English, tackled questions about perimeter in Mathematics and started learning about forces in Science. We also came up with some fantastic ideas to replace' Hug on the Rug'- watch this space to find out if one of them will be chosen. In P.E. this week we started table tennis using our amazing tabletop tennis kits. We had a lot of fun- though some of us are still working on keeping control of the ball!
Zephaniah paused our lesson earlier and went outside to admire the beautiful rainbow shining over our playground. We thought about how the rainbow had occured and how this links to our previous learning about light and the weather.
Wow, what a fantastic day we had at Bristol Zoo. We saw lions, gorillas, hippos, lemurs, crocodiles and snakes. We also saw lots of birds and nocturnal creatures. In the afternoon we had a talk about endangered animals, the threats faced by them and the work that the Zoo is doing to help them. We loved this trip. Thank you so much to all the parents who helped. Thank you also to the PTA for helping to fund this trip.
What a busy but successful open afternoon! We made individual fruit pizzas and created clay tiles in the style of the Benin Civilisation. Thank you to all the parents who joined us.
In art we made a collaborative project for a school display on the theme of 'Who Are We?'. Joseph had the brilliant idea to create a Holbrook flag to represent the different nationalities within in our class. We added a dragon and, to wave the flag, two Holbrook pupils who reflect the diversity within our school. Look out for the finished flag displayed somewhere around the school...
In P.E. this week we have been making the shapes of African animals in groups. Can you guess which animals we are?
This year Zephaniah have an exciting new challenge in Music lessons, learning the ukulele! This week we looked at how to hold and strum the ukulele and Abigail from our class started teaching us how to pluck 'Old McDonald' which she knows from her guitar lessons. What a super start to learning to play our exciting new instruments!
