Broadening Our Horizons Through Lifelong Learning

Year 3 do the Tortoise!

This afternoon Class 3 have discovered and performed one of the most effective defensive formations used by the Roman army….. ‘The tortoise’!

Year 3 Roman Invasion animations

This morning, Class 3 have been learning how to use a variety of skills on 2Animate to create a short animation about the Roman invasion!

Year 6 open art studio

The Year 6 study room was wonderfully transformed into an open art studio this afternoon as pupils continued their work with our resident artist, Charlotte. Inspired by the artist Andy Warhol, pupils practiced mixing colours and applying a range of stencils to create a series of abstract prints.

Year 6 – Allotment week

Year 6 enjoyed learning about sowing different seeds, planting them and sprucing up our pots ready for when our seeds germinate. We had the extra bonus of the glorious sunshine too!

Year 3 – allotment week

Class 3 have had a wonderful afternoon in the glorious sunshine planting bulbs and weeding.

Year 3 – Allotment week

Some see a weed,  others see a wish

Year 5 Hook Day

Class 5 have had a wonderful time exploring the Greek Pantheon, making sculptures of gods and jewellery inspired by ancient Greek artefacts and taking part in Class 5 Olympics.

Year 3 – Romans Hook Day

Class 3 have had a fabulous day getting ‘hooked in’ to Romans.

We have made an eagle standard, shields, Roman coins, collaged a Roman soldier and created mosaics.

EYC – Where would we like to be?

What a truly gorgeous day!

For our WOW starter of ‘Where Would We Like To Be,’ EYC had ‘Show Time’ of the Jack and the Beanstalk story acted out by their teachers. The children then presented their version of the story to the class. Look how focused they all are!

The finale was the opportunity for the children to milk Daisy the Cow.

Easter winners!

Look at all our Easter winners – from achievement to Easter bonnet to Easter raffle to kindness awards.  Well done everyone, what a lovely end to the term!

EYC Easter Egg hunt

The Easter Bunny left Easter eggs for the Rainbows to find in our EYC garden. Oh what fun the Rainbows had finding them all!

Year 1 and 2 make bug hotels!

Class 1 and 2 loved going on a tree walk and then making bug hotels for the bugs in the school playground.

Year 5 pond dipping

Class 5 spent a delightful afternoon, pond dipping and bug hunting in the allotment. We found woodlice, centipedes, worms, shrimp, frog spawn and diving beetles. There were happy smiles and shrieks, children conquering their fears to hold creatures and sharing their knowledge. What science is all about. Balancing was fun too 🙂

Rainbows spring walk

The Rainbow children made their own binoculars and then we took them on our Spring walk around school. What a beautiful day for some outdoor learning in Science Week!

Year 1’s big bug hunt

Class 1 loved going on a big bug hunt. We found so many different bugs on our travels!

Year 2’s big bug hunt

Class 2 really enjoyed doing the bug hunt today. We learnt about why bugs and minibeasts are important and spent some time looking under rocks and around trees for them. We found ants, wood lice, caterpillars, snails, beetles and slugs.

Year 2 wax paintings

In Class 2 we have been creating wax resist paintings based on the Great Fire of London. We learnt about Batik art and used this technique to help us do our paintings.

Year 6 Primary Parliament

On Wednesday, Year 6 participated in a Primary Parliament initiative to learn all about the census! 

After first learning about the history of the census, they conducted several surveys to create a unique snapshot of their class. They then presented their findings to other local schools and councillor Sally Longford. They discovered so much – including that 14 children in the class can speak another language!

EYC Easter Egg rolling

Children in Reception did Egg rolling today. This was a good opportunity to use our maths language: which egg went the furthers? Which egg stayed the nearest to the slide? What was the number on the winning egg?

After lunch, we sat down and wrote about the experience. We are getting so good at using our phonics skills!

EYC’s Easter observational paintings

Rainbow children came to the painting table to make an observational painting of our Easter display. They selected their colours carefully and the result was stunning!
