Religious Education - The cross
We have been learning about the cross and what it means to Christians. We discussed whether we thought it is a symbol of love or sacrifice. We decided that it is both because God sacrificed His son for us because he loves us all. We made our own crosses using natural materials in the school grounds and wrote explanations about what each part of our cross represented.

New reading books - 11th December
The children were so excited to choose from the new books we were able to buy. Thanks to the PFA for providing us with some of their fundraising money; we were delighted to be able to purchase just over 200 new books for our Unit. The staff and children truly appreciate these books and we know they will be read many times and add to the children's love of reading. THANK YOU.
The Grand Canyon
Our North America adventure continues and this week we have been exploring the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA.
The children have been working hard to understand how the vibrant layers were created over millions of years and then how the weather and the Colerado River have carved out the incredible canyon! They showed their understanding with this amazing artwork.
STAY SAFE ONLINE
Learning how to stay safe online is a key part of the Computing curriculum. In Unit 2 we created our own online superheroes to remind us how to be a good digital citizen.
As part of our North American adventures, we have travelled to Mexico this week. We discovered that Mexico is so large that it has completely different climate zones from desert to mountains to tropical rainforest!
We have loved finding out about the Mexican culture including their amazing folk art. We created our own versions of Owls and pastel pictures of Adobe (made from mud) buildings.

We are off on our adventure around North America. This week we have arrived on the stunning island of Jamaica. Today we investigated the island and explored the mountains and beaches. We did a lot of research to find out what it would be like to visit or live in Jamaica.
We found this delicious tropical fruit to try....there wasn't much left when we had finished!
Rain before rainbows 11.9.20
We started this term with a mini topic based on the beautifully illustrated book Rain Before Rainbows. The book explores overcoming worries and fears - hope over fear.
At one point in the story, the girl in the book is having a beautiful dream where she flies across the night sky with her fox companion and rises above her problems. Her dreams inspire her and encourage her to keep going.
We talked about what dreams of hope we have. We used a variety of ways to represent our dreams: we wrote them down, created dream jars and produced pieces of art work of our dream.
We have also written poems about rain and rainbows.
Have a look at the slideshow of pictures below to see some of the fantastic work Unit 2 have produced in the short time they have been back at school.
