In our P.E session this week the children thoroughly enjoyed a game of Rounders!

👑Coronation Celebrations!🇬🇧
The children all look fabulous this morning in their combinations of red, white and blue.


Continuing in our artwork we have been tracing and exploring the architecture of the Taj Mahal and we have created our own designs for our own buildings.

We have been researching colour and patterns and putting this into practice in the design of St Basil’s  Cathedral.

We have been exploring the architecture of Sir Christopher Wren. We then looked at different shading techniques and using them to shade in a picture of St Paul's Cathedral. We used hatching, crosshatching, scumbling and stippling.

This week in Healthy Heads we focused on self-esteem. We discussed what self-esteem means and how we can improve our own. We then enjoyed some exercise and teamwork outside.


This week in P.E we improved some more on our hand-eye co-ordination and worked on directing the ball to our partner, focusing on accuracy and power.

Today we have been looking at the difference between weight and mass. We have spoken about Issac Newton and his discovery of gravity. We then measured the weight and mass of different objects around the classroom and compared our findings.

Healthy Heads - week 3

This week we discussed the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships, we also learnt different ways to deal with a fall out with our friends. We spoke about different methods we could use to stay calm. STOP-THINK-RELAX

This week in P.E we continued to work on our hand-eye co-ordination and our accuracy.

Healthy Heads - week 2

This week we have focused on Empathy. We discussed ways we can show empathy to others and how we would like people to show empathy towards us too. We spoke about the importance of listening to others, helping other people and having consideration for other peoples feelings. At the end of our lesson we headed outside for some exercise too.

In P.E we have started to focus on our hand-eye co-ordination. We did this with a tennis racket and a ball, we started off by walking around the playground whilst balancing the ball on the racket, we then moved on to walking around whilst bouncing the ball on the racket and we ended the lesson batting the ball back and forth between partners making sure we focused on our aiming and power.

STEM learning

Take a look at a selection of our completed mini greenhouses, all ready to add some seeds! The children have done a fantastic job incorporating all the important aspects they learnt that make a greenhouse work best.

Wear your scarf to school day!


Today we enjoyed some games and singing in French with Mrs Halloran. We played a colour game and a numbers game to recap on some of the French we have learnt so far. The children thoroughly enjoy the games ‘pamplemousse’ and bingo as well as singing head, shoulders, knees and toes.. in French!

In Pelé we love to make some time in our week for some self reflection/ meditation. This week it tied in nicely with our discussions during mental health week. 

STEM learning
Today we considered how greenhouses work, how they allow sunlight in and how their structure and stability is important. We then made our own mini greenhouses.

Today we have spoken about our mental health and the importance of looking after ourselves. The children then created some wonderful posters offering different ways you can take care of your mental health and the things we can fit into our daily routine to help keep us happy and healthy.

Today we have been celebrating Science day and we were lucky enough to have a scientist come in and do an assembly for us explaining all about different types of energy. A few lucky children were even able to go up and try out some of the experiments too!

In P.E this week we practiced our dodging and defending skills, we applied different tactics to our game to outwit an opponent.

Antarctica Week!


This week we have been researching information about Antarctica and creating our own fact files. We have found so many interesting facts about the Antarctic climate and weather, what people wear in such a cold environment, animals, plants and people, how people travel around Antarctica and the landscape.

During our French lesson, Pèle class learned all about France and the French speaking countries. We learnt the basic greetings 'Bonjour!' 'Salut!' 'ça va?' 'ça va bien?' 'Au revoir' We also learned how to ask what is your name and how to reply, 'Je m'appelle...' 

The children enjoyed asking these questions in French and answering in French too.

In Science this week we conducted an experiment to test different ways to separate mixtures. We made our own predictions once we looked at the mixtures and determined which method we would try to separate them. After this we put our prediction to the test to see if we were correct.

The ice finally melted, just in time for the children to enjoy a donkey ride on the last day! What a lovely way to end the autumn term.


We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2023!

In our last session of Move and Learn we played a game of Human Bingo. We had 10 minutes to find a person in the class that could say yes to some given questions related to our previous sessions, such as, 'Can you think of an activity that will help develop stamina?'

We also wrote a letter to our future selves about the benefits of physical activity and a balanced diet. 

To end our last session we went outside and played a game that tested us physically AND tested our listening skills. Coach would shout clockwise or anti-clockwise with an added instruction of how to move around (skipping, running, hopping etc) then he would shout a colour of cone to collect, fastest won!

Today in our Move and Learn lesson we discussed hydration, why it is important we stay hydrated, the best ways to stay hydrated and things that may affect our hydration levels. Then we enjoyed some exercise in the playground, the team that collected the most cones won however each team member had to use a different method of movement to get to the cones in the middle. 

We carried our netball skills over to bench ball again this week. We covered all of our learned techniques such as not moving once we have the ball, quick passes to avoid the defenders getting into position, chest passes and bounce passes. 

We had a visit from an author today called Nathan Parker. Nathan talked to us about his love of reading and how it inspired him to create his own books. We enjoyed listening to his story and learning about his love of writing.

In Science we have conducted an experiment to see which materials make the best conductors and insulators.

We predicted which materials would make the bulb shine brighter or dimmer and then compared this to our results.

Healthy Heads

This week the children have focused on the different food groups and what benefits they have on our bodies. They then created their own healthy meal plans for the day including; breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

In PE the children have continued to focus on their netball skills for this half term. Although the horrific weather kept them indoors they incorporated their chest pass and bounce passes into a game of bench ball. They also put  their attacking and defending knowledge into practice.
