A Balanced Meal

Year 4 have been acting as personal trainers for some needy clients. They looked into their client’s diet and were horrified by the amount of sugar being consumed. They set about designing some balanced meals to help improve the diets. They worked brilliantly together to create realistic looking food using all sorts of resources including paper, dough and sponge. They demonstrated enormous focus for their learning today.

Year 6 – Grammar Games

Year 6 have had a great literacy lesson, playing games they have created. They spent sessions last week reflecting on grammar terminology and discussing areas they would like to explore and understand further. I was amazed to see the thought that the children had put into their games. Year 6, how do you think this has supported your learning?

Year 6 – Trenches

Year 6 were given two afternoons to plan and create their 3D trench models. I was extremely impressed with the collaboration shown when creating the models. They displayed great independence and organisation ensuring they had the resources they had planned for which showed great responsibility of taking charge of their own learning.  Year 6 which attributes do you feel you used when working collaboratively with one another?

Year 2 children were invited to create their own art work for the annual Flower Festival at St Thomas’s Church.

The children had many questions for the adults who look after the church and will be able to use this experience for their learning after half term.

Year 1 enjoyed some exciting design and technology learning this afternoon. They compared differences between animals in England and their Brazilian rainforest equivalents. The pigeon to the toucan, the jaguar to the house cat and the poison dart frog to the common garden frog. They then focused on the special characteristic traits the Brazilian animals had developed in order to survive in the rainforest. For example, the Toucans large beak to keep him cool. Year 1 then demonstrated these characteristics by working collaboratively to create junk models of their favourite animal. They then showed brilliant communication and risk taking skills by actively listening and presenting their models to the class!
