Summer Term

Spring Term

We were so lucky to have a second engineering workshop using KNEX. We were designing and creating a crane to move a skip made of KNEX.

This half term in Design and Technology we have been looking at Cookery. We're sure you've heard all about it. We have made guacamole, taste tested different dips, made our own tortillas, planned our ideal, healthy, balanced fajita and then cooked them. Most of the children thought it was the best DT topic ever!

The outfits the children wore for World Book Day were amazing. Thank you all for helping to make the day so special for the children.

The Sea Scouts came into school to give us the opportunity to take part in a marine engineering challenge. It was a great experience and hopefully encouraged some of our students to consider engineering as a potential career. 

We were very lucky to have an animal experience day where we could get up close with some animals and learn lots of new facts about them. We met Severus the snake, Charmander the bearded dragon, Charlotte the tarantula, Amy the fennec fox and Gru the little owl. See the photos of us all below.

In Art and DT we were using clay to make different types of items that might have been used in Mayan times, linking with our topic work. Here are the items we made.

We hope you enjoyed our assembly showing off everything we had been learning that half term. Here are a few photos to enjoy. 

Autumn Term 

We were so pleased that Sapphire class led our Christmas service at St Francis Church on the last day of term. The children spoke clearly, sang beautifully and we are so proud of how they rose to the challenge. Apologies that we couldn't get photos of everyone but here are a few from the service.

We all enjoyed our Christmas lunch together.

During the last week of term we created Christingles as part of our RE learning.

Throughout the Autumn term we designed and created our own Cam toys. It involved lots of different skills including measuring, sawing, drilling and drawing. We finally got these finished at the end of term and you can see photos of them below.

As part of our Creation week we went on a walk to explore how we felt in Creation. It was a beautiful afternoon and you can see the photos below.

Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a week of bikeability lessons and even though one child couldn't complete the course he became a teacher to help other children improve their cycling. Take a look at them starting their rides.

In Science we have been exploring water resistance. We tried to use our knowledge to create boats that would have low water resistance and so move easily through the water. Take a look at some of our designs.
