Reading Tips



Amazing Art Trip

This morning Hawk Class had an amazing arty morning at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath. We were looking at how different artist use texture in their work, especially when creating works with animals in. We focused on the sculpture Sophie Ryder and her work called Lady Hare on a Dog. The children spotted loads of different recycled items in the sculpture! Including a light switch!

Later we created our own texture creatures and brought them back with us







Rescheduled Climbing Trip

I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter break.

The climbing trip to Undercover Rock in Bristol has been rescheduled for Wednesday 11th April. All the details remain the same; we will leave and return within school hours, bring a packed lunch (with no fizzy drinks) and wear leggings or tracksuit bottoms.Undercover rock

Have fun!


Science Week: Sound

This week was Science Week in Hawk class and we were learning all about sound. We carried out investigations into vibration, the ways in which sound travels and pitch – here are some photos to show how hard we worked as scientists!

A highlight of our week was when we poured different volumes of water into glass bottles in order to create the tune for ‘Hot Cross Buns’. We all managed to get there before the 15 minute timer was up, hooray!

Animation Day

Today Hawk Class have been learning to create their own animated characters and clips using stop motion animation. They moulded plasterscene and found props to create their own film set and everyone had the chance to direct a section of their clip. Angie, our expert coach, told me that they were fantastically behaved and they worked together very well.

Well done Hawk Class. Perhaps Hollywood beckons in the future?

Here is what Hawk Class thought:

  • Gracie M though it was really good because you got to make lots of different models
  • Madison thought it was amazing because she enjoyed working as a team
  • Ezra thought it was really fun because Shay and I had a flying pizza land on the ground and a person ate it.
  • Tehzeeb thought it was fantastic because we got to make our own movies
  • Balian thought it was quite good because you could design your own characters
  • Chloe found it phenomenal because it turned photos into a film
  • Amelia found it very fun and she loved using cling film to make water


Over the year, the Year 3 children in Hawk Class are learning to play the recorders with Miss French. They are working really hard during their lessons and are already reading musical notation, which Miss French said is very impressive for this time of the year.

The children have now mastered Mary had a Little Lamb and have now moved onto a traditional Welsh song. Where will this amazing musical talent take them? Theatre Royal, Colston Hall or The Royal Albert Hall?
