Welcome to Lions Class. We use our name from the Bible story of Daniel and the Lions Den, and as a class we strive to follow the bravery, hope and trust learnt from this story. We are a mixed Year 4/5/6 group and we enjoy our spacious classroom as we learn and collaborate together. Our room is well-equipped with computers, a calm reading and reflection corner and an art area for crafts and cooking. Our teacher uses a large interactive touch screen board for our learning, and in our own outdoor area we have a brand new table tennis table that we freely use at break times. And, of course, we have to squeeze in Mr Good’s guitars as well!
After spending time planning and designing two puff pastry dishes, Lions Class were very excited to finally make them today. As the children constructed their dishes, wonderful sweet and savoury smells filled the classroom. We finished the day taste-testing and evaluating the pastries based on their appearance, texture and flavour.
Lions Class learnt about Mary Leakey in their ‘Scientists and Inventors’ unit in Science. They then had a go at doing their own excavations of real fossils in the outdoor area. They used a grid to record where they found fossils before drawing detailed observations.
Each class enjoyed a session of calmness thanks to the Small Schools Partnership hosting a Day of Calmness workshop at our school. We learnt some techniques to help us maintain peace and relaxation that we can do everyday.
Have a read of a selection of short stories Lions Class have written in lockdown based on the short, romantic Disney animation – Paperman.
