Year 5's Study of Beatriz Milhazes

As part of their South American topic, Year 5 have been studying Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes.  She is a contemporary artist whose work is vibrant, colourful and often geometric. Year 5 have started their journey to produce a piece of art in her style, by using a painted background and creating geometric shapes in different colours and textures to create their collages..  Watch this space for the finished artwork soon!  Mrs Blomeley

Year 3 and 4 cricket festival

Year 3 and 4 loved taking part in the cricket festival today where they played lots of different games to develop their bowling, batting and fielding skills. We played the game jail cricket and Noah and Toby were the last two in the game out of all the schools there! A water fight to cool down at the end was a perfect way to finish the day and a highlight of the day by many that attended.

Biodiversity counters using micro:bits

Continuing with our micro:bit survey that we are taking part in, today we coded the micro:bits to help us count the number of different species of animals and plants in our school environment. The code was quite tricky but the children were quick to pick it up and then enjoyed exploring the school grounds looking for different types of life. 

Greek Food tasting Year 3

Greek food tasting in Year 3.

Children tasted pitta bread, feta cheese, olives and tzatziki dip. We felt like Year 3 was a Greek restaurant with Greek music playing.

Z Art- School Linking Project

We had such a fun- filled day with Lum Head. Lots of group work activities pretending to be a range of things from surf boards to pizzas!

Art session involved close partner work sharing 'similarities and differences' between each other and producing clay hands.

Schools Linking Project will be a special place in our hearts and memories!

Year 3 have really developed over the year in confidence and socially.

Mindfulness in Year 4

Year 4 have been looking at how to improve their well-being. They looked at how the children can connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give. Today they mindfully ate a strawberry and biscuit and enjoyed them so much more because they used their senses to explore the fruit. 

Year 5's Taster Day at Rayner Stephens!

Year 5 enjoyed their visit to Rayner Stephens today, where they engaged in different lessons  in true High School style!  They loved the challenge of making a structure in Science, using just spaghetti sticks and marshmallows!    Then they engaged in an exciting Escape Room challenge in Geography, followed by Music, where they impressed the Music Teacher with their knowledge of musical notation, and got the chance to play their own rhythms on the drums!  Finally, they enjoyed using frogs and counters in Maths to work out Quadratic Equations!  We were very lucky to have four amazing ex-pupil

Cricket fun
