Welcome to Meerkat Class

Our Fairtrade Chocolate Brownie Project

In D&T we created our own Fairtrade chocolate brownies. We did taste testing, market research and package designing to create a healthy, fairtrade chocolate brownie. We then baked and bought our designs to life! Yum Yum!

Constructing Stonehenge

In History we have been learning about how humans in the Stone Age survived. We learnt about Stonehenge and in Art wecreated our own sculpture of the famous landmark! We worked as team and used cardboard boxes to recreate it. Take a look at our finished sculpture!

Well done to this week’s i-readers who have been reading at home and recording it in their reading diaries.

Forest School Fun!


We enjoyed a day learning how to survive, led by John and Olly from Greenpath Ventures

Science day

We based our mad science day around our topic book of Kensuke’s Kingdom. We first made tornado’s in a bottle and used this as a stimulus to write our ships log as Michael, who had experienced a bad storm and tornado at sea on the Peggy Sue.
