We've been exploring different parts of the world and we learned a song to help us remember the names of the Seven Continents.  
We have looked at different parables and the lessons they teach us. We made up our own real life stories to show our understanding. 
We have worked alongside our Year 5 Buddies to help us prepare our Road Safety Campaign. 
They helped us to write our ideas and design our posters.

We were very lucky to have Brunel's friend Henry Wakefield come to visit us and tell us all about Brunel's life and achievements. Here is Brunel's Mum and Dad getting married! 
We have been learning all about measure and started by gettting everyone in our class to line up from tallest to smallest. 
Before Henry Wakefield left, we played a game where we travelled through the Thames Tunnel, rode on the GWR and took a trip on the SS Great Britain. 
We have also been exploring capacity and volume. We carriedout some experiments to see which containers could hold the most liquid. It was loads of messy fun!
