This week, Cardiff class went on a very special expedition...

...to discover the tomb of Tutenkhamun!

Armed with nothing more than a torch and a paintbrush, they ventured into the cramped chambers to investigate what treasures had been left behind! Next week they will be using this experience to help them write their own historical fiction tales about exploring (or robbing!) the tombs of the Pharoahs!

This week, the classes of Santiago and Cardiff hosted their fundraiser for the Americas. This was the culmination of their topic work this term. To begin with, the children investigated the issues facing the people of the Americas and identified charities that are doing something to help. After researching and writing about how these charities support those in need, they worked collaboratively to design, create and run their fundraiser stall. As you can see, the event was a massive success and well attended by parents and pupils alike. We are delighted to reveal that the overall total raised was £211.31 (until we found more money pots hiding in the hall!). This means that each of the five charities the children chose to support will receive at least £42.26!


A huge thank you goes out to all of the parents and carers who came and made the day such a success as well as those who gave money to children to donate.

Vienna class have had a very active and interesting week with many different fun and exciting ways of learning.  In Science, we learnt about the circulatory system by practically becoming the heart, lungs, body and blood.  We had pieces of paper that were red on one side to show oxygenated blood and blue on the other to show deoxygenated blood.  As we ‘circulated’ around, the paper was swapped over to red in the lungs and blue in the body.

On Wednesday afternoon, we had a visit from Mr Singh who told us lots of information about Sikh beliefs.  We learnt about the 5Ks and how these remind Sikhs about the importance of equality and respect.

On Thursday and Friday, we made the most of the sunshine and outside space for PE, Music and Maths.  In music, we continued to practise our African ‘Hatsiatsia’ and in Maths, we created large number lines involving negative numbers on the playground and used these to solve problems, including identifying where numbers were and the difference between a negative and positive number.

Finally, we learnt about networks in ICT by forming human networks using string and paper to send messages.

Barclays Digital Eagles

To celebrate national coding week, Cardiff class joined schools from around the country, participating in a live coding event from the Barclays Digital Eagles. The children were practising their coding skills on scratch, adding coding blocks to a script for a hide and seek game that (almost!) everyone got to test out and play at the end.

The children loved working on the laptops and will hopefully be putting those coding skills to good use later in the year!
