Super Veggies to the rescue!
In groups, we planned and filmed our own Super Veggie film trailers using the iMovie app. We thoroughly enjoyed filming these and had some great ideas. We hope you enjoy watching them.

History of the school
We have started our history of the school topic by mapping out the different features in the school grounds. We began by studying a range of satellite images of the school and comparing these to aerial maps.
Next, we went on a hunt around the school, labelling the key features on our outline maps.
We have enjoyed finding out about the life of Edward Goff, the founder of our school. We used evidence from the mosaic timeline to discover more about his life and the history of the school.
We looked at a range of old aerial photos and compared them to a recent one from Google Maps. We then explored the school building and grounds, looking for signs of the original building.
A terrific visit from the Herefordshire Toy Museum.
Carolyn from the Toy Museum visited us, bringing an assortment of old toys for us to explore. She showed us a monkey toy that was 110 years old! She told us all about different old toys and we had time to explore each of the activities she had brought along. We learned about how in Victorian times, toys were divided into those for boys and for girls which we didn’t think was a very good idea. We also looked at replica toys and compared old and new versions of the same toy. We also used a range of adjectives to describe each of the toys.
We have been using the laptops and iPads to draw pictures using all of the different digital tools. We are developing our control when using the mouse and track pad.
We started our ‘Enchanted Woodland’ topic with a walk through the woods. We enjoyed looking for fairies and found one of their homes and their swing. We learnt about some of the different types of trees in the wood and collected items to create some natural artwork back at school.
Pirates and Mermaids Party Day!
On the penultimate day of the year, a vast variety of pirates, mermaids and sea creatures arrived in Briery Class for our party day. We had a fantastic day full of dancing, party games and a treasure hunt which lead to us ‘borrowing’ the treasure from the Head Pirate’s office!
