What we would like to find out:
How many people live in Weston? - Courtney

How many people live in the world? - Alicja
Is Uphill the biggest school? - Isabella
Sketching at the beach
We have been learning about a local artist called Rosie Smith who does fantastic watercolours of our local area. This term we will be creating our own watercolour artwork of our local area so went down to the beach to do some sketching to help us with this!
We have been reading the book 'Pirate Blunderbeard' in class and we were very lucky to be visited by the author! Amy Sparkes very kindly spent the afternoon with us reading extracts, creating funny inventions with us and signing our copies of the book! It was such a valuable experience to meet an author and hopefully this will inspire our writing for the year!
Walk around Uphill
We have been learning about human and physical geographical features so went on a walk around our local area to see how many we could spot! We kept a tally to see which ones were the most common.
