Add a little face paint!

This is my husband, my daughter and myself. Every week we have a zoom quiz with other members of the family. There are about 10- 12 groups that join in. Each time someone different is in charge of asking the questions. It’s just a little bit of fun, and it helps those of the family […]

What’s in a name?

On my walk today I found lots of plants. New ones seem to pop up every day! I love it when I notice a new flower, one that was not there yesterday. I took some photos of some of the plants…. then I noticed something!  This Is Ivy! WAIT! This is Daisy! HANG ON THERE’S […]

Nearly missed them!

Well I nearly missed these…they were going so fast.  The Red arrows flew over London on Friday. They were a part of the V.E. day celebrations. when they got to London they sprayed out red white and blue smoke. They are very loud as they go past.  

Not such a sunny day today but look what I found!

Today I found some interesting plants and other things…BUT I HAD TO LOOK VERY CAREFULLY It made me think. I wonder if it is really noisy for those ants, ladybirds, worms and earwigs that live under these bells. I thought about them blowing in the wind and how much noise they would make. Can you […]

Another early morning walk…what did I find?

   That looked like cotton wool to me! When I looked closer… it was a wriggling mess of caterpillars… still munching away at the Hawthorn tree they are on. So I went on the hunt for spiders webs. You can just see this intricate pattern on this spiders web. How does it do that? It […]

History on our doorstep!

        On my walk this morning I came across this!  It is part of World War two. It is called a Tett Turret.  During World War two there was an airfield based in Hornchurch. Hornchurch is 3 stops on the tube train from Dagenham East (the station closest to our school).  Air […]

Spot the difference

Have some fun during this temporary school closure. There are several differences between these two pictures, can you spot them?  

Look what I found on my walk this morning!

Wow look at these! On my walk this morning I went past a tree (A Hawthorn) and I noticed a small cotton wool blob on the end of a branch. At first I thought it was a spiders web. But when I looked closely WELL!! look what it was. These wriggly caterpillars have just hatched. […]

Mrs Moreline’s Morning Walk

Hello to you all. This is me and my dog Pepper on our early morning walk. We go out once a day for some exercise as that is what we are advised to do by the government. I usually go very early in the morning because I won't meet many people that way. Also it [...]

Watch out Master Chef

Year 4’s are continually developing our cooking skills. Last week we created our own stir fry using fresh vegetables, noodles, lemon juice and soy sauce. This week we surprised ourselves by making apple tarts using home made pastry. We used a number of different cookery techniques including: peeling, cutting, slicing, dicing, rolling and mixing to […]

Year 4 Mayan temples

The Spanish conquistadors discovered whole abandoned cities with strange pyramids and other buildings in the middle of the rain-forest. We created our own Mayan temples. This one is even taller than Mr Flint.  

Our Mayan Headdresses

This term our Humanities topic is ‘The Mayans.’ Mayan headdresses were an important part of the Mayan attire. The quality and sometimes the size of the headdress would tell people about the social status of the wearer. Can you spot any Royalty among our tribe?

Painting in the style of Claude Monet

Over the last few weeks we have been working on our painting skills. Using Claude Monet’s famous outdoor scenes as a basis, we created our own.                                       

World Religion Day

  We used water colours to produce our own paintings of the devastating wild fires in Australia.

Our European Neighbours

This term year 4 are studying our European Neighbours. First we had to identify and name the seven continents of the world and then we had an understanding of where and how big Europe is. This week we used the laptops to find out the capital cities of many of the European countries. We now […]

World Religion Day

To celebrate 'World Religion Day' 4K produced some religious art work. The theme was 'Are we spoiling God's good Earth?' We reflected on the fact that many religions teach their followers that the Earth is God's creation, but the beauty of it, is being destroyed by humans. Using water colour paints we demonstrated how our [...]
