We have looked at various bag designs, chosen a purpose and a user for our bags and designed our own bags to suit these. Also, we have practised hand-stitching and machine-stitching different styles of stitches. Some prototypes have been made and now we are making our full-size bags...

Sunny weather greeted us at Diss High School for the annual rounders tournament between local primary schools. Our two teams were mentored by Diss High School sports leaders and we all enjoyed the afternoon of 8 rounders games! Everyone played well, there was good sportsmanship and one of our teams came second in the small schools section; another successful sporting day for Bressingham
Here we are- playing and chilling!

We have listened to and performed with 'Mars' from 'The Planets' by Gustav Holst and considered how Holst gives the impression of the atmosphere of this 'angry planet'.
Then we have created our own musical pieces to represent volcanoes and earthquakes. Here we are, performing. We gave one another feedback to help improve our compositions.

Today, some of Class 4 travelled on the train for the first time! We were off to Yarmouth to visit the Tolhouse Museum, an ancient gaol of the Town, and also to visit the beach for some fun and the opportunity to jump over waves in the sea. Not only that, but we carried out some geography surveys about land-use, together with some geography questionnaires. We will use the data to carry out some statistics work in Maths- real Maths- and to do some mapping. It was an action-packed day, as you will see...
It was dark in the ancient gaol, so the pictures are not all of the best quality, but give a feeling of some of the children's experiences. The children had the role of prison inspectors. They had to examine the conditions of the gaol, interview the jailer, a prisoner and speak with a prison reformer, before making their judgement.
Sacking clothes for prisoners:
Matching crimes and punishments in the olden days...
hat we may find out about the shopping locations of people we interviewed and also, will there be a difference in land-use along the sea-front compared to the centre of Yarmouth?
