A big THANK YOU to our Pen Pals for spending time with us this afternoon. We had a lovely time meeting everyone.

Pen Pal Letters

Pen Pals


As part of our topic, we have been writing letters to our pen pals at Hanover Court.  This week we got replies and the children were very excited to hear all about their pen pals' childhood. I hope you enjoy reading them too. 

This afternoon, we visited Hanover Court and met our pen pals. It was lovely to put faces to the names in our letters.

The children could look at pictures of their pen pals as young children and hear their stories.


Animation Styles

In our computing we have been looking at different ways that people use animation.
We have had great fun learning how to use Pivot Stick Figure animation. Today we tried to make flip books to moving pictures and then we created some stop start movie animations on the ipad.
Here are some videos of our flip book that the children were proud of.

Great Bakewell Sewing Bee! Cushions for our toys using cross stitch and running stitch.

Was it a walking trip or  swim?

As part of our topic 'There's No Place Like Home', we went on our visit to Bradgate Park. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't very favourable but still we had a great time.

The wonderful, informative guides told us so much about what life must have been like for Lady Jane Grey (The Nine Day Queen) when she lived there as a small child. We even found out how the village came to be called Newtown Linford. Please do ask your child to share everything they learned on our trip. 

Our extrememly soggy visit to Bradgate Park!
