ABCD Dance Show

This morning the street dance and drama after school clubs put on a spectacular show for the whole school and parents too! It was amazing to see how confident even the youngest children were. What a treat it was! Take a look at the photos…

The Tin Forest

This half term we have been inspired to work across the curriculum by Helen Ward’s book; The Tin Forest. We have enjoyed using all our Drama strategies to explore the book and give us ideas for our own forest stories. We loved being outside in our own woodland exploring the book and planning our own stories. We have sent some of our stories to

Woodland Habitats

Blue class started their Forest School sessions today and their focus has been on Habitats which links with their Science work. We were particularly interested in the variety of bird life in our area and spent some time bird watching. One group was very lucky to see a Sparrowhawk come sweeping down over the trees. The smaller birds got very panicky. We have decided

This led us to thinking about the Water Cycle and in particular the stages of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. We made some Thinglinks to help explain the different stages. Have a look at some of them below:

Roman Art Workshop

To bring our Roman topic to an end, Year 4 were incredibly lucky to take part in an Arts workshop. Natalie from Z Arts came to visit us and helped us to make some Roman banners using food dye! At first, we sketched some symbols onto material and then we worked as a team to colour in the backgrounds of our banners in bold
