DT- Making Pyramids

Sycamore Class have enjoyed researching different structures. They have then applied their knowledge to designing and making Egyptian pyramids. They now understand how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures.

Making Bridges

In DT, Chestnut Class have been making bridges. They took lots of inspiration from different bridges around the world. They learnt about different ways to join the cardboard together. They learnt about the flange join and the L brace join. They had to think carefully about how they built it to make sure that it was stable and stayed up by itself.

Jubilee Day

Oak and Chestnut Class have had a wonderful day celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee before we break up for half term. Oak Class baked scones and Chestnut Class decorated biscuits and made sandwiches and both classes got together for a tea party. This was followed by a Forest School session where they made natural crowns. We hope everybody has a brilliant half term!

Oak Class observational drawing

Oak Class did some observational, pencil drawings of flowers.

End of SATs week

The Year 6s had a lovely breakfast celebration on the last day of SATs!

Making sandwiches

In English, Year 1&2 have been following and writing instructions. They had to sequence some instructions and then write some commands to go with them. They then got to follow the instructions and make their sandwiches (and eat them of course!).

Pigeons!

Oak and Chestnut Class were really lucky today and got to meet some pigeons. Our site supervisor, Phil Graseley, looks after pigeons and races them. He brought some of them in today for the children to look at and stroke. They even got to feel their heartbeats! Phil then let them free and he will send in some photos to show they got safely back home.

Reception trip to Borwick Hall

Reception have had an absolutely wonderful day at Borwick Hall today. We got to take part in orienteering, a scavenger hunt, making butterfly attractors, rock climbing, bug hotel building, caving and some problem solving activities. We also had some free time to just enjoy the sunshine as well as lunch around the camp fire. Pete, our instructor said we had given him a fantastic day and that we were a credit to our school! Well done to you all! What a fantastic day!

Making ‘poo’

Sycamore Class had loads of fun making ‘poo’ as part of their unit on the digestive system. They used Weetabix, banana and a pair of tights to demonstrate how the digestive system works. Their faces say it all!

Cake baking

Sycamore Class baked some cakes as part of their Maths lesson on mass. They used 2 eggs as the weight and weighed everything else against them. What a yummy lesson!
