is Sahithin! Well done Sahithil!

Welcome to the Summer Term!

Look at this picture! This is when we won the Class of the Week trophy in term 1!

Guess what? We have just won the Class of the Week trophy again for working very hard in class, making lots of progress and being a super, polite class with all our interesting visitors!

This term our topic is 'Nature Explorers'

We are starting this term by Investigating a famous person from Berkshire. We are looking closely at Alfred the Great and what made him so 'GREAT'. We have lots of questions to try to find the answers to!

Art with Mr Graham Lock


We had the privilege of being taught art by a professional artist. We learnt how to look for the shapes in the picture and how to use this to create the image. We were amazed by his picture that he created! We all had a go at creating our own pictures, using pencils and watercolours.

The picture above is the one that Graham completed. Look at all the wonderful pictures that we draw with his help.

Vesak - A Buddhist Festival

We have learnt about a Buddhist festival ,which is held on a Full moon in May. A parent (Tharindu), and some helpers (Abha and Hannah), came into class to talk about the festival and the importance of it for Buddhists. We then created some amazing lanterns in groups.

PE balances

We have enjoyed working in groups over the last couple of weeks to create controlled balances, using a number different points.
