 Welcome to Ruby Class!

Spring Term 2024

Have a look below to see what we have been up to this term!


Museum of Power - School Trip




As part of our recent Electricity topic in Science, we visited the Power Museum in Langford and had a great day! We made our own water wheels and even got to test them with water guns. We also created our own electric circuits and had a ride on the steam train. It was a fantastic day out and we learnt a lot!




We have been learning to paint tints and shades of different colours by adding white and black to a starting colour. We enjoyed experimenting with paint!

Forest School



We have had an absolutely fantastic time at Forest School this term. We have really enjoyed exploring our Forest School area and getting muddy. We have made our own natural art inspired by other artists, built a rope ladder, including sawing the logs ourselves and swung many times on the rope swing! We even had a campfire where we popped our own popcorn!




In Science, we have been investigating the effects of tooth decay. We used egg shells to represent our teeth and left them to sit in different liquids! We were quite surprised by some of the results!



Anti-Bullying Week



We highlighted the important message of anti-bullying by all wearing odd socks to school to show that we are all unique and no matter what, we all deserve to be treated with respect!




In English, we have been reading 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' by C.S Lewis. We have written a setting description to describe what Lucy would have seen, heard and felt as she discovered Narnia. 




In Geography, we have been comparing where we live and regions in Italy. We have written persuasive leaflets to encourage people to visit Italy. We then thought about how we would present them to make them look colourful and attractive! We are very proud of this work!
