This week in English, the children have been designing and describing their own dinosaurs. Look at the fantastic writing and creations they have produced.

For Children's Mental Health week, the children chose an activity to complete in a relaxed space with another person in their home to talk about their feelings. Here are some of the activities the children completed.
 
Pola - This is a CD with Polish songs, which Pola got from her Grandparents. It really makes her happy. 
 
Izzy - I made a positivity jar for my mental health activity. When I am feeling sad or down, I open the jar and pick out a message to make me feel better. They are all kind messages to myself.
I have decorated it with bright wrapping paper and says on the front - see one of these when you're feeling down.
We have been researching information on our chosen dinosaur to help us to write a non chronological text. Look at these fabulous reports!
We created posters for Safer Internet Day. We know how to stay safe online.
Mrs Marden set the children an Art task around the theme of hearts as Valentine's Day is approaching. Hearts also tie in with our school ethos of kindness and caring for one another. 
Grace has written some fantastic predictions on what she thinks our new class text will be about.
The children wrote a poem using the instructions from the poetry machine to help them set it out. They used nouns, adjectives, similes and verbs. They children really love impressing us!

Computer Science
 
We had a go at creating an algorithm to tell our beebots where to go. When we made a mistake in our code, we learnt how to debug it.
