Stone Age Day

Date: 14th Jan 2018 @ 8:04pm

Year 3 had an absolutely fantastic time when Clud came in to see us for our Stone Age day. They took part in lots of fun activities and games and learnt so many interesting facts. They got to hold a tooth of a woolly mammoth (which was the size of an ipad!) and feel some reindeer fur as well as learning how to make fire. The children all looked fantastic, a big thank you to all the parents for producing some great costumes. 

Our new topic for this half term.

Date: 10th Jan 2018 @ 4:13pm

Can you solve the mystery of the Maya?

Y6 have been introduced to their new topic today by taking part in a chocolate challenge.

It is believed that the Mayans were one of the first to discover cocoa as early as 900AD. With this in mind, we challenged the children to identify the mystery chocolates.

Y5 Class WW2 assembly

Date: 19th Dec 2017 @ 4:15pm

This half term, we have worked very hard learning all about World War 2. We decided as a class that we would like to focus on the evacuation of children from city areas in our assembly. Y5 thought that this was the most relatable part of our learning and became one of the most interesting aspects of our WW2 topic.

The assembly was about two young children and their journey from a city to the countryside. It helped the other children understand what these children went through and sacrifices parents had to make. We loved performing, singing and educating everyone on this very important section of our history!

Art Lesson

Date: 10th Dec 2017 @ 12:17pm

Year 4 have been looking at the famous artist Claude Monet. 

We looked at examples of his work, in particular, the famous Water Lily Pond painting.

We then experimented mixing colours and this week we created our own interpretation of the Water Lily Pond painting. 

We followed the style of Monet which involved painting using our fingers. The children had fun and created some amazing art work.

Diary Entries!

Date: 28th Nov 2017 @ 12:19pm

As part of our World War 2 topic, we have been looking at the lives of evacuees. We have found out that a lot of evacuees used to write in journals or diaries so we have decided to write some diary extracts as if WE were evacuees. 

Today's lesson involved researching the different features of a diary exctract and talking about how emotive language would have been used in a diary.

ESTIMATION STATIONS!

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 9:05pm

The children in Year 3 had a fantastic time practising their estimation skills. These skills are so important for maths; to help them identify errors and make sensible guesses about what calculations will equal. The children worked in teams to estimate a variety of things; from letters on a page to pockets in the class. They showed an excellent understanding and used some fantastic strategies!

Anti-bullying Week in Y1

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:38pm

During Anti-bullying Week, Y1 explored the subject through the story of Humpty Dumpty. In these photos you can see the children acting out the story. The King's Men were bullying Humpty because they pushed him off the wall and laughed at him SEVERAL TIMES ON PURPOSE. Year 1 decided that the King should be told what his men were doing, and that they should be made to apologise and make friends with Humpty. The children then related this to what they should do if this was happening to them or one of their friends.

Victorian laundry in Y1

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:19pm

Year 1 have been learning about what life was like more than one hundred years ago, and how Cinderella would have done the housework for her mean stepmother! We did some washing using a tub, washboard and poss stick, just like poor CInderella. It was very hard work!

The Mysterious Material Hunt

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:17pm

Through our new topic- What is our school made of? We have started looking more at the objects around us and what they are made of. We also started looking at the properties they have. In little groups, we went around the school and used the IPADs to take photos of our findings. We also started looking at the materials origin and we were shocked to find out toothpaste is made from chalk! YUCK!
