This week we have learned about a japanese artist called Motoi Yamamoto. He is famous for working with salt an essential material for both the human body and the ocean. He pours the tiny grains into images that look very different far away than they do up close — maze-like, lace- like, map-like, nature- like patterns that … Continue reading
Year 4 have been learning about the human digestion system. Today’s lesson got very messy as some pupils demonstrated how the digestion process works.
This was the question Year 5 had to answer in our R.E. lesson this week. We have previously reflected on good and bad / right and wrong and we developed these ideas to help us discuss what things in life are truly ‘valuable’. The class had to discuss 21 different values, sorting them into lists … Continue reading
Year 4 have been considering the effects of drinks on teeth, as part of our work on the digestive system. They thought about what science questions they wanted to investigate, designed a suitable experiment, made predictions about what they expected to happen and recorded their observations. The pupils were surprised by some of their results!
Year 4 shared their learning about Ancient Egyptians with the rest of the school and family and friends. They gave a great performance, showing some aspects of Ancient Egyptian culture, the importance of the River Nile, hieroglyphics and the process of mummification.
This week we have been thinking about ‘finding our brave’ as part of Children’s Mental Health Week. We completed a task to show our brave.

We used images of desert islands and worked in small groups to imagine what we could hear, see, touch, taste and smell. We shared our ideas and … Continue reading
Year 5 spent an R.E. lesson investigating what the words ‘freedom’, ‘fairness’, ‘justice’ and ‘forgiveness’ meant to them. They looked at real-life situations and in groups, discussed whether there had been justice in the situation, and whether having the freedom to do something meant that we were allowed do anything we want. The children felt … Continue reading
