This ancient oak tree is over 400 years old!
We went pond dipping and used a decision tree to help us understand what we were finding; looked for mini-beasts in the meadow and studied them with magnifying glasses; used camouflage to hide each other in the wood and meadow; identified trees by touch and learnt about their different leaves and used our bodies and voices to 'be' a tree.

We're off on a trip!
Next Thursday (21st April), we are off to Trinity Park for the annual School Farm and Country Fair. Letters have gone home this week.
It will be a day of learning about food, farming and the countryside through fun and interactive activities. An action packed day taking us through a number of interactive zones, such as Food and Countryside, Livestock, Safety, Modern Farming, Wildlife and Display zones.
All activities are designed to educate children on the importance of agriculture to Suffolk and linking it to the National Curriculum and core subjects, such as maths, science, English, history, geography, art & design etc.
Please remember to return permission slips by Monday 18th April.
At our school, we believe it is a key skill to know times tables and division facts. We are often asked by parents how they can help their children learn these facts. We hope that the following ideas will give some ideas to be used at home.
