Autumn Term 2020-2021

Lower Key Stage 2 wrote and presented some brilliant adverts promoting a Baltic Cruise to various capital cities from this region.

 

Year 3 worked well with arrays to show how this represents multiplication.

  

Year 4 spent time using lolly sticks to create Roman numerals. An engaging way to make this lesson memorable.

Lower KS2 had a fabulous time describing hidden objects in ‘feely bags’ to prove that light is needed to see and that darkness is the absence of light.

 

Lower Key Stage 2 loved this science lesson where they created ear gongs using string and coat-hangers to explore how for a sound to occur, something will have vibrated.

Lower Key stage two have loved learning more about our world. They now understand about the equator, the hemispheres and how this effects climate.

Science fun in Lower Key Stage 2. We explored changing states with ‘ice hands’ and learnt about the functions of the skeleton.

Maths fun. Exploring addition with practical resources to check we fully understand what is happening in a calculation so our written methods are not just ‘tricks’.

Mr Egypt

What Mr Egypt does not know about this ancient civilisation is not worth knowing!  He is an actual archaeologist, who lives in Egypt most of the year.  The children had a fabulous day, the highlight was turning their friends into Mummies!

Autumn term 2019

Rugby

Here are Class 3 and Class 3/4 having an awesome time with the professional rugby coach.  Great skills shown as lots of resilience against the cold!

Diversity video

Here are Class 3 and Class 3/4 showcasing their sewing skills.  Superheros they certainly are!  Unfortunately, Class 4 were speedier sewers than us and their capes were home before we thought of doing the pictures!

Eden Camp

Nice job at Eden Camp comrades!  The children loved the experience, were impeccably behaved and are now all fired up to learn more about war.

  

Reading champs

Wow…look at all these Year 3 and 4 Reading Champions. All reading an average of 4 times a week last half-term. They enjoyed an extra playtime on Friday. Well done. Let’s see if we can have even more this half term.

Pedestrian safety sessions

Anti-bullying

Some drama around our anti-bullying story during anti-bullying week.

Some artwork on an anti-bullying theme.  Each piece of the jigsaw had a positive message
