Space to Learn


We visited Space to Learn to begin our topic- Bright Lights Big City!

We went on the 'train' to London and then went on an 'open top bus' to see the London Landmarks.

We completed lots of computing work- giving each other directions to find the different landmarks of London.



We visited MIMA to learn about the life and work of L S Lowry.

We made sculptures of Middlesbrough landmarks using junk materials and we made matchstick men and matchstick cats and dogs- just like Lowry!


Royal WOW Day!


We had a Royal WOW day, and we came to school dressed as Queens, Kings, Princesses, Princes, Knights and even Dragons!

We learned all about the Queen and the Royal family, and at the end of the day we had a Royal tea party!
