Week beginning 19.02.24


We have started the new book 'The Boy at the back of the class.' The children have really enjoyed learning about the new characters and have created some lovely character descriptions and are building up to a story in Ahmet's shoes. We have also started our new Science topic states of matter, we looked at the three different states, solids, liquids and gases. The children tested their strength trying to bend a table proving that a solid cannot be compressed.
