Sir Walter Raleigh

Today we have been researching the life and times of Sir Walter Raleigh. We have created a timeline of his life as well as keynotes about him. Did you know he went to the Amazon Rainforest to search for El Dorado (the Lost City of Gold). Do you think he found it?

Sizing up the greenhouse

Today we went to take various measurements in our greenhouse. All the windows and the ceiling are now in place and we are eagerly waiting to see the next development. We recorded our measurements in a table and then created charts to represent the difference between our estimates and the actual measurements.

Dear Prime Minister…

Here at Wombridge Primary School we believe in healthy eating and fresh ingredients. As you can see from our blog and website all classes have been growing their own fruits and vegetables. In class 6 we have decided that all school children should share in this experience. As part of our literacy persuasive writing work we have written letters to David Cameron (the Prime Minister) to ask him to help get all schools cooking healthy meals using fresh ingredients.
