Junk Amnesty

Whilst you're on half term can you all please collect kitchen roll insides, plastic bottles, boxes of all shapes and sizes and any other useful bits you might have lying around at home. Please send them washed and clean to any lower school teacher. We will be using them as part of a Literacy session on the first Tuesday back.

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your half term. :)

Today, Lower School took part in a Tinkering session. This involved the children making and inventing things with a variety of recycled materials such as wood, sticks and bolts to name a few materials. The children were able to let their imaginations run free and create whatever they wanted. It was an amazing opportunity and the children gained invaluable skills from this experience.

Take a look at some of their brilliant and very creative inventions.

Giving and receiving instructions

Today, Class 6 have started looking at instructions and explanations. They had to work in groups and one person needed to give specific instructions to draw a picture. Whilst having fun and laughing at the results, we discovered how hard it is to give precise instructions to others.

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to learn the skills needed to give and write precise explanations and instructions.

Beautiful Butterflies in Class 7

On Friday, Class 7 were very lucky to have the artist , Peter Baldry, come into school to work with us.


We created 3D butterflies for the tree, which has been painted in the Old Hall.


Peter taught us how to make sure our butterfly was symmetrical and how to use the colour wheel so that we could use complimentary and contrasting colours.

The results are gorgeous. The butterflies are on display now in the Old Hall.
