Tarka Class have been busy this week. To support our learning about Marie Curie, we created a WWI hospital, with an ambulance containing a mobile x-ray unit. The children had an amazing time being soldiers, doctors, nurses and X-ray operators! Then we created our own x-rays with chalk!
In our science unit we have been learning about 'Light'. This week we have investigated how shadows are formed. We designed and made our own shadow puppets!

Orange glow in the sky,
Rain on the roof, rushing floods all over town,
Massive rain drops hammer on the roof.
