Jubilee themed Art and Computing

Year 3 enjoyed wearing a crown and pretending to be a Queen or King.

We uploaded the photos and children learnt to edit them, did they make themselves look like the lived in 1952? Could they be a future Queen or King?

Editing photos is regularly done in 2022, we discussed how images can be easilly altered. We also ensured that we had permission before editing anyone else's photos.

Outdoor Learning Day in Year 6

Thursday 19th May was Outdoor Learning Day so year 6 took the opportunity to continue their learning about animal and their habitats in our outdoor environment. The class have been learning about classification keys in science so we used a key to identify different invertebrates. We looked at where the animals were found to identify the preferred living conditions of them.

Please send in any photographs of any other invertebrates that you find at home year 6.
