Pyramid building experts – Year 3

On Thursday 3rd December 2015, Year 3 spent the day learning all about the pyramids and how to build their own. They started off building small structures which they put together to make a very impressive pyramid and ended the day making a pyramid which almost touched the ceiling. The children also learnt how to move the giant stones needed to build the pyramids. As a demonstration they used their teachers as stones and moved them across the hall. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and became expert pyramid builders.

Crime Scene Investigation – Year 2

On Friday October 2nd 2015, Year 2 spent the afternoon with forensic investigator, Lee Robson. He brought his police van onto the field and the children took part in activities to help solve the mystery of the missing chair and blanket. They analysed their fingerprints, completed suspect sketches and looked at the suspect’s handwriting and footprints. Lee showed the children how to dust for fingerprints and how to take moulds of footprints and fingerprints. The children learnt so much and enjoyed being crime scene investigators for the afternoon.

Sutton Hoo – Year 6

It was a glorious day as Year 6 imagined being Edith Pretty living in her house in Sutton Hoo, looking over her land imagining what lay beneath the large mounds she saw in front of her. Guides spoke about and showed the children the  Anglo Saxon treasures that archaeologists discovered when she asked them to dig the mounds up. The children became archaeologists themselves as they unearthed treasures of their own. Everyone agreed it was a fabulous day!

International Day

???????????????????????????????Our school was buzzing on Friday 25th September as we celebrated International Day. Year 1 to Year 6 took part in learning about the many exciting different languages and cultures from all around the world, from making Italian pizzas to Greek Dancing, speaking German to exploring the culture of Kenya! Our Reception classes learned some ways to say Hello ???????????????????????????????in different languages. Our whole school assembly celebrated the breadth of languages across the world and we enjoyed learning different ways to say ‘Let’s be friends’ from the talented children in our school who are fluent in more than one language. Soyons amis! Laten we vrienden zijn! Und lass uns Freude sein!

Brain Afternoon – Year 3

On Thursday, Year 3 had a Brain Afternoon! We wore our thinking clothes and got comfy with our reading books, just like Albert  Einstein. We even made our very own brain hats and tried some food that is good for the brain!
