Due to popular request, this week's home learning task is to practise drawing 3D shapes using isometric paper. You will need isometric paper, a pencil and a ruler,


- no horizontal lines

- vertical lines stay vertical

Task: Draw three 3D shapes.

You can either:

Choose three from the ones pictured below.


Choose two from the ones pictured below and draw one other of your own design. 

Set yourself an appropriate amount of challenge!

Kanchanaburi ... here we come!

Today 4W has had a fantastic day preparing for the residential visit to Kanchanaburi. We started the day looking at the student booklets, setting ourselves targets and thinking about our itinerary. Then it was time for some fun in the pool. Some of us amused ourselves using equipment such as flippers, floats and balls whilst others just enjoyed chatting with our friends around the poolside.

After break, it was time for a treasure hunt. We had to follow the cryptic clues to locate different letters. When we had found all the letters we had to unjumble them to spell a word connected to our Kanchanaburi visit. What do you think they spelt?

... River Kwai!

Next it was time for a team building task. In teams of four, together with 4L, we had to construct a shelter using bamboo poles, string and netting. Then Ms Dawn and Khun Sumal turned on the hose. Some got wetter than others!

During the afternoon, Miss Sophie led an assembly to answer any last minute questions before we came back to our class to reflect on our day and prepare for tomorrow.

Building Bridges

This term our learning theme is 'Building Bridges'. 

Our BIG question for this theme is:


Our key questions for this theme are:

  •  How are bridges like friendship?
  • What is it like by the River Kwai bridge?
  • How do bridges stay up?
  • Who builds bridges? 

To start off our theme we carried out a task in teams: who can build the strongest bridge using only newspaper and masking tape? Check out the photographs below to see our efforts.


This week's Home Learning tasks are myimaths and preparation for the residential. While you're away you will be responsible for keeping your room tidy, organising yourself and making sure that you are clean and tidy. Some suggestions to make sure that you are prepared:

wash your hair yourself

make your bed

tidy your room

practise folding your clothes...

...I'm sure that you can think of others.


This week we have been investigating symmetry and practising visualising and drawing 3D shapes. Some people requested a link to the task we used in school but due to copyright this is not possible. If you would like some isometric paper to practise drawing 3D shapes you can print some out here.

Making bridges out of newspaper was a real challenge, but what made it worse was we only had 15 minutes!!!
Our bridge managed to bear 2000g it was outstanding!
It was great fun.
