We have been working hard at Portland to include a new approach to our writing using Jane Considine's research. In year 4, we have been planning and drafting ideas for a newspaper article all about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Have a look at our INCREDIBLE work. 😊 pic.twitter.com/6NXlGmDygv
This afternoon Year 3 delved deep into the features of a river. We looked at what the words meant and used symbols to help us remember them. #connectedcurriculum #dualcoding pic.twitter.com/S31Ow093eT
Amazing art skills using a new medium in Year 6 - charcoal. We are creating a comparison between Victorian and modern England. We are excited to share our pictures when they are finished! pic.twitter.com/j6ye9qBqG8
Buttercups had lots of fun at forest school today. They explored their core book ‘The Gruffalo’ and had a go at making houses for the animals. They found this hanging basket and had a go at weaving the sticks to create a home for the animals🦔🐾 pic.twitter.com/oNwOynic1O
