Clay Making

We have been making terracotta warriors using clay. First we practised using the tools and trying the different skills by making Shang burial objects. After that, we made our own terracotta warriors. Each one is different so we now have our own year four terracotta army.


Skipping Festival

We competed in the skipping festival at Thornhill. Thirty children took part and we won several bronze, silver and gold certificates. The children put a great deal of effort into the skipping routine and this showed as we finished with a Silver for this event. Well done everyone
