Royal Wedding Cards

On the day before Prince Harry married Meghan, we learned about the Royal Family and found out why the nation are excited about the wedding. We watched a little clip of Prince William's wedding because we weren't alive when that happened in 2011. We reminded ourselves...

Andy Goldsworthy Art

As part of our Art unit inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, we went outside and found natural items which we could make our own piece of artwork out of. Everybody had different ideas and could explain why they had chosen certain things.   Next we will make a sculpture...

DT Challenge

As one of our challenges, we had to design the room of a house, then build it. We drew up a labelled plan, thinking about which items the room would need and which materials we might make these from.  We selected from and used a range of materials according to their...

Maths Repeating Patterns

Traffic Survey

We carried out a traffic survey to find out how the amount of vehicles passing the school changes across the day.  As we predicted, the road was much busier when it was near home time than it was earlier in the afternoon.  We decided that our parents and carers could...
