The children had fun making their parachutes in DT/science, ready for our science lesson next week when we will test them and discuss air resistance. They have also made their own castanets and drums in music! Do ask your child to play the fruit rhythms they have been learning in class for you.

Closely related to the circus theme in the classroom, the boys painted colourful clowns in art – these are ready for the finer detail next week.

A very hands-on practical week here!
