November 17, 2017: Exciting news!
Well done to the children who found out today that their poems, which they created in Rhymecraft, are going to be published in a book next year! They should all be super proud of themselves. Writing for fun helps develop so many skills, including creativity, comprehension and fluency. Keep writing guys, who knows, maybe we'll have the next JK Rowling or Roald Dahl!



November 10, 2017: Bingo Homework
Some more children in class 6 have produced some fantastic Bingo homework, including some very yummy treats. I am very impressed with you all, well done.



November 9, 2017: Kandinsky Creations
We've been creating our own versions of famous art using concentric circles for lights in the sky, and cross hatch patterns drawn to represent the buildings of a city.



October 24, 2017: Maya's Stone Age Maze Game
Maya has been helping to test a new version of a maze creator* within PurpleMash, and she has designed a brilliant game based on our topic. Try out her Stone Age maze game and see if you can collect all the shells... Click here to play *there may be some bugs that are still being ironed out.



October 23, 2017: The Stone Age Rocks!
What a fantastic half term we've had exploring the Stone Age! Class 3 have been very busy digging for evidence, researching animals of the Stone Age, designing our very own cave paintings, producing rock databases, building Stonehenge out of biscuits, as well as creating sunset silhouette art work. With a little help from Ug, Om and The Stone Age Boy, we've also written some fabulous setting descriptions, instructions on how to catch a prehistoric beast and diary entries sharing how much we hate wearing stone trousers! We finished our topic by reflecting on everything we've learnt and working collaboratively to produce a whole class Stone Age fact file.



October 18, 2017: Stonehenge Sunsets
As we come to the end of our half term project, we have created some wonderful artwork of a Stonehenge silhouette in front of a stunning sunset. Here are just a few examples of their creations.



July 25, 2017: 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". Download Beasts: A Tale



July 20, 2017: 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.



July 19, 2017: 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;



July 18, 2017: 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.
