Green class have been learning all about fossils in our Science lessons and doing lots of work on the famous fossil hunter Mary Anning in English. We were really surprised to discover the age of the fossils she found- around 200 million years! In PE with Tom from PACES we have been doing lots of exciting ball games, we are becoming experts at attacking and defending. We have also been finding out all about Anglo-Saxon jobs and done some weaving of our own which we are really proud of. In maths lessons we have been focusing on using expanded column addition which we are getting really good at now.
