Roles in the Government for Year 6

Year 6 have been tasked with being the government for a while and are looking at ways of safely reopening shops, cinemas and campsites. There have been some fantastic and mature presentations. Well done. One group even had an unexpected American visitor.

Fun maths quests

In maths, Year 3 children have been working hard on direction and co-ordinates. They have designed treasure maps and learned how to use their new skills to direct each other to find the hidden treasure.

Van Gogh inspired artwork

3D Town Maps

Year 2 pupils were set the task of designing, planning and then building a 3D town map as part of their topic work on Map Skills.  There have been some amazing submissions, which followed the given criteria very carefully.

Carnival of the Animals

Our Year 5 and 6 pupils have been learning about Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals and have been asked to make their own compositions, inspired by the music.

The children listened to the music, then created their own artwork or musical interpretation.  The results have been excellent. We’ve had some lovely images and everything from lions, kangaroos, tortoises, elephants and fossils represented through music played on clarinet, drums, saxophone, flute, cello and piano.
