Minecraft Skills

Years 5 and 6 have been using their Creative Computing Skills within Minecraft to celebrate the Royal Wedding. They have constructed wedding scenes and coded in scripts for characters to read out. The children manipulated lighting and recorded the screens themselves to share with the internet. Great work, really well done.

A Special Lunch

A superb meal was enjoyed by huge numbers of our fabulous children as we celebrated the forthcoming Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan. The children looked regal in their crowns and devoured the fayre provided by Lynn and our wonderful staff kitchen team. A superb day in school and of course, congratulations to our most famous British Family of them all!

European Fabulous Food

Year 3 have been learning all about the countries of Europe and have done some exciting food tasting. We have tried lots of foods from other counties including Spain, Italy and Germany. We loved trying all the different foods especially the tasty pizza! Did you know the “Pizza Margherita”, is a pizza garnished with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, to represent the national colours of Italy as on the Italian flag?

Super Soup

EYFS 1 have been learning all about gardening. They looked at ‘Oliver’s Vegetables.’ Oliver would only eat chips so when Grandad challenges him to eat every vegetable in his garden, we thought a delicious soup made from vegetables would answer the challenge. The children were wonderful at chopping, washing and definitely eating. A delicious treat. Well done everyone.

Year 2 Breakfast

Year 2 went on the Wild Walk to make breakfast and explore our beautiful outside area. We made beans on toast and even lit the fire pit ourselves. We went on a Scavenger Hunt and made Bog Babies out of clay. What a fantastic adventure we had!

Year 4 – Meeting Exciting Creatures

Year 4 had a special visit from ‘Meet a Creature’, who introduced us to our new topic all about the Amazon Rainforest. We looked at some amazing creatures that live in the Rainforest and had a go at some live sketching, which turned out brilliantly. We then got to interact with the creatures. This included, holding a Royal Python, Tarantula, Gecko, Corn Snake, Chameleon, Frog and many more. After lunch, we watched how the different creatures moved to get around and worked together as a team to try and recreate their movements. (not easy). After that we drew giant food chains from the Amazon. Finally, we got to choose our favourite creature of the day, and had our photograph taken. What an amazing opportunity. We loved the day and we learned so much about the Amazon Rainforest’s inhabitants!
