Today, our Science learning involved exploring the part that flowers play in pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
We watched a wonderful video by artist Katy Scott of how flowers make new flowers. There were no words which made it all the more special.
The main points were:
- The bees visit the flowers to gather nectar and pollen which they need for food. Some of the pollen gets moved from flower to flower.
- Once the pollen has moved down the stigma into the ovary, the flower has been pollinated. Seed formation begins in the ovary.
We made the different parts from paper and put the structure together in groups.
Here are some pictures from the session.

TTRS tournament winners (wb 29 March 2021)
Our final week before Easter may only have been four days, but we’ve still seen some very impressive times tables practice.
3,4E were victorious for the first time last week.
They’ve only gone and done it again!
Congratulations! The TTRS guitar will remain with you.
Lots of children ran for the Junior Leadership Team and made brilliant speeches. We set up the hall as a polling station with a ballot box and a confidential voting system.
The New Junior Leadership Team
I am pleased to announce that we have a new Junior Leadership Team. A massive thank you to everyone who wrote a speech, had the confidence to speak in front of their classmates and thought of creative ways to improve our school.
There was a flurry of activity this morning as all classes visited the hall to cast their votes. It was very tense!
Our new JLT is…
1/2 C – Michael and Nyla
1/2 K- Caleb and Hermione
1/2 V – Ava and Lorien

I can’t wait to meet with the new team after the Easter holiday and get started!
TTRS tournament winners (wb 22 March)
What can we say other than WOW?
This week, the TTRS tournament has been as competitive as ever.
The winning class has doubled (yes, DOUBLED) the score of last week’s winners.
After a few wins in a row for 5,6M, we have new champions! I REPEAT – WE HAVE NEW CHAMPIONS!
Congratulations to everyone in 3,4E on your hard-fought win. We’re pleased to announce that tournament winners will each week be presented with the TTRS guitar!
Everyone is really upping their game at the moment and the results speak for themselves.
The latest tournament will end this Thursday, seeing as it is Good Friday this week.
All the best, one and all.
Well done to all our certificate winners this week…
3,4NV class post
What another great week 3,4NV!
Today, we were really lucky to have a visit from Junior Jam so we could learn to play the Steel Pans and create some carnival music.
We all tried to learn the tune to ‘Under the Sea’ and some of us had the chance to perform this at the end of the session! We had great fun.
We have also continued to create the final versions of our carnival outfit designs. Have a look at this design.
