It’s science week! This week in Year 3 we have been writing secret messages using lemon juice ink and by ironing them, the messages were revealed! Whitebeam decided that instead of throwing away their used lemons, they made lemon juice to drink. Some of the class weren’t impressed by the taste! See above.

Complaint Letter Writing

Complaint Letter Writing 1

Complaint Letter Writing

As a part of our English curriculum, Willow class wrote letters of complaint about a bad experience they had had with some food from Tesco. Their letters were sent and Miss Mills, a manager at Tesco, came into school as she was so impressed with their writing. The class were delighted to receive a lolly each and George’s letter impressed her so much that he received a box of Lego.

Well done George! See picture above.

During English this week, Willow class have been learning all about powerful adjectives and how they are effective in writing descriptions. We had to design our own chocolate bar so we tried some chocolate to help! We then used this work to create our own variety of chocolate to sell and describe it to each other. We wrote some fantastic pieces!

On Friday, Mrs Wright and Rhyan made some for us to eat! They were yummy! We even let George from year 4 have one! See above.
