Aspiration Day and summer fair – Friday 30th June 2017

Wow, what an exciting day! The children looked brilliant in their ‘future career’ outfits. We had Doctors, military, a judge, a YouTuber, business men, florists and even a unicorn, to name but a few. The children chose to learn more about either: sport, catering, design, emergency services, ICT or construction. It was lovely to see the children all working together, all day to find out more about a chosen career. Our special visitors throughout the day really helped to inspire, motivate and open our children eyes to new careers out in the world. Thank you to all of you who shared your expertise and experiences with the children, and the staff. Everyone had a thought provoking day. Who knows what impact today will have had? We will have to wait and see.

This year, instead of the big Summer Fare, a mini one was organised for the children. Thank you to everyone who supported school, coming and spending your hard earned money. A special thanks to Mrs. Bradshaw – who made cakes, sweets kebabs, sweet cups and organised the games and stalls. We really couldn’t have done it without her! Although much smaller than previous years, it was still perfectly formed.

Board Game Based Creativity

At the start of 2017, Class7 were introduced to a new board game - Beasts of Balance - that combine a traditional game (stacking of objects) with an interactive iPad app. At the same time, a small group of children were asked to start to develop a story based around the mysterious and wonderful world that the Beasts of the game inhabit.

Jacob (Yr4), Ada (Yr4), Nathaniel (Yr3) and Isabelle (Yr3) have worked really hard to complete their nine chapter story that is called "Beasts: A Tale". Below we've printed a small extract from their work, along with a link to the whole tale as a .pdf file

Ada stopped, looked up and shouted "Stop. Look up to the sky".
The others stopped and looked above them.
"So. Many. Stars." she gasped.
They looked and looked.
All of a sudden Jacob said "Look, those stars look like an octopus".
"And those look like a bear" added Isabelle.
"There's a warthog" gasped Nathaniel, pointing upwards
"An eagle" shouted Ada, tapping Jacob on the shoulder, who was busy looking at more stars that looked like a shark.
"Toucan" yelled Nathaniel and Isabelle together.
"These constellations are strange" muttered Ada, "I don't know any of these".
Unexpectedly, the three stars in the warthog constellation slowly began to fall towards the ground. The children backed away whilst staring at the falling stars until they hit the ground. Instantly, a warthog appeared in front of them, snorting and eating the juicy grass.
"Wow", the children whispered, "That's magic".

The Laughing Policegirl

It's almost the end of term. We've completed our topics. We thought we'd have a little bit of fun making a video, and we'd thought we challenge you too...

Can you watch this without laughing (and without having a tune in your head for the rest of the day)?

Wondering what we've made?

It's based on an old fashioned arcade machine that played the tune whilst a puppet police figure moved around looking like it was laughing. We think that E has done a great job of being the laughing puppet.

Photo Stories

We've been making photo stories using Comic Life on the iPads. The children had to plan a story, take photos for it, and then make a comic to tell the story. They chose a template that made their photos look like hand drawn images, and here are two of the creations completed so far;

End of Topic Creative Task

Class 7 have now completed their Egyptian themed work for this term, and as a final task they were asked to construct the Pyramids at Giza, write about them, and then add a 3D printed Sphinx to their work. Here are two examples of what they ended up with.
