Year 3 and 4 have all had a go at ‘Gardening for the Olympic Games’.
Everybody has designed their own Olympic garden and lots of the children were able to get dirty, planting flowers into old tyres (we like to re-use). The tyres have become the five Olympic rings and carefully selected flowers, that match the colours of the famous rings, were placed into the appropriate tyre.

Mrs Kind’s class started the garden by arranging the tyres and digging.
Mrs Kinch’s class carried on with this task and helped to plant the white strawberries in the ‘green’ ring.
Mrs Cotton’s class filled up some tyres and planted more flowers and finally…
Miss Jopling’s class finished planting the flowers, topped up the soil and watered the garden.
Thank you everyone for a great team effort!
If you would like to see the Olympic garden for yourself, you will find it by the Year 3a, 3b and 4b entrance door, by Mrs Kind’s classroom window.
As part of our history topic we have been learning about the Vikings and have constructed a Viking longboat. We have all really enjoyed this topic and were very excited at the proposal of finishing it by celebrating in true Viking style. We did this by burning the longboat as if a Viking warrior had died in battle.
This week we would like you to write a set of instructions for something that you do a lot. It might be instructions for getting ready for school in the morning or instructions for making your favourite sandwich!
Try to include a title, some time connectives and some bossy verbs.
How will you let the reader know the right order for your instructions?
Make sure you have made your instructions as clear as possible.
Last week, you all received a packet of pea seeds to take home and grow. We would like to know how you’re getting on so leave a comment describing what you can see happening as your pea seeds grow into lovely, yummy peas!
