Our topic (WW2)
This term, Otters have been learning about World War 2.
So far this term, we’ve written diary entries as people involved in war, also we’ve made information posters about these leaders: Joseph Stalin (Russian leader), Adolf Hitler (German leader), Benito Mussolini (Italian leader), Winston Churchill (English leader) And Neville Chamberlain (Used to be English leader before Churchill).
Our music lessons
This year we have started music lessons as a class with Mr V. We weren’t playing an instrument, we were playing on stuff like bins, brooms, pots, pans and plastic canisters. First we watched someone play on pots and pans and then we started learning what different things mean.
In computing we have been designing our app ideas. Our apps are about school and remembering things for school and everyday life. We are typing up focus group questions for our app using Microsoft word. Next week we will ask some children from badgers to get some feedback on our apps. We have done online surveys on google forms with questions about our app for students to reply on them and give their opinion on our app idea.

This term Otters have been in groups planning to create an app. We have made PowerPoints about our app in our groups and a video to explain it or show an example. Once we had completed our PowerPoints we had to showcase them to our panel of *Experts* (Also known as: Mrs Jeff’s, Mrs Taylor and Miss Strang) after we had showcased our PowerPoints the teachers and some students asked us questions.
Some of these questions we had no answer for but some other questions we all had good ideas of how to answer them.
In Harry’s group we had a PowerPoint about our ideas for different parts of the app like: Homework tracker, Spelling bee etc. their video idea was about how the app could help you with your phone and how it would remind you earlier when to charge you phone.
Theo’s group made a PowerPoint about their app Just Remember. In their presentation, they talked about the app helping you remember things for everyday life and before and after school.
