Spring 1

 Week 6

This year, Safer Internet Day was on Tuesday 8th February with the theme of 'All Fun and Games Exploring Respect and Relationships online'.  During our Computing lesson this week, we explored the importance of remaining safe whilst using the internet.  First, we listened to the story 'Digiduck and the Magic Castle' and we were introduced to the main characters of Digiduck and Eagle_Owl. 

As a class, we hot seated these two characters whilst thinking of some fantastic questions to ask Digiduck (Poppy) and Eagle_Owl (George P) based on the story that we had read.  

Afterwards, we thought about who we could ask for help if we were to see something that we did not like or something which made us feel unsure about what to do.  Finally we explored different examples of information and thought carefully about which were best to be kept private and offline and which we could share online.   

We finished this week, with a wonderful Tops Time Celebration with our choice of activity. Lots of us watched a film whilst eating popcorn, some of us made models using recycling whilst the others created a bookmark or a card.  


We wish you all a wonderful half term break! 

Break the Rules Non-Uniform Day (Friday 11th February)

Week 5

This week we built our bridges. The children recapped their learning about the different types of joins that they learnt last week and then set out to build the bridge they had designed in their sketch books. Everyone had a great afternoon while consolidating their new DT skills. Some of us built beam bridges, some of us built suspension bridges and some of us built truss bridges whilst taking care to join to the materials in different ways, which included L-brace and flange joins.

Take a look at our wonderful creations.

Week 4


This week the children have been using evidence to make simple observations about the past. They were given some ingredients and asked to make inferences about how Mary Seacole would have used them in the Crimea. They also had some guesses as to what each ingredient was. Here are some photographs of them exploring. 


This week Penguins have been developing their football skills further by kicking the ball into the goal. We have had a lot of fun!


Penguins have been learning about the structure of bridges and have used a range of resources to make a variety of bridges. Most the children used the beam structure technique.
