  • Rainforest VR

    Published 07/05/24, by E Finnerty

    Our topic this half term is the Amazon Rainforest - unfortunately we can't travel there for a school trip, so instead we brought the Amazon to us! PrimeVR allowed us to fly over the Amazon and delve into its depths. We got up close and personal with sloths, jaguars and capuchin monkeys!

  • Remembrance Day

    Published 08/11/23, by E Finnerty

    Our Remembrance Day project this year was for each child to create their own peg soldier. We looked at all the people who helped during the wars and designed our own soldiers to join the Year 6 Regiment. These are now displayed in the reception area at the front of school for everyone to have a look at.

  • Scientific Enquiry

    Published 27/03/23, by E Finnerty

    In Science we have been learning about classification, and more specifically, microorganisms. We have decided to investigate how different conditions affect the growth of mould. 

    In groups, we have chosen different areas around school to place an uncontaminated slice of bread. Over the next few weeks, we will monitor the growth of mould and compare this with the other slices which have been kept in different conditions.

  • Nutrition Talk

    Published 20/01/23, by E Finnerty

    We were thrilled to invite one of our lovely parents into school to speak to us about nutrition education. We got to use our senses to try a range of different foods and understand how small changes can make a big difference! This will help us with our DT topic when we start to plan a nutritious, balanced meal.

  • CPR & Recovery Position

    Published 10/01/23, by E Finnerty

    This half term we are learning all about the circulatory system. To help with our understanding, Mrs Riley offered to teach us how to put someone into the recovery position, and how (and when) to administer CPR. We discussed when to call 999, what is an emergency and how we can help. Next, we will be applying this to our knowledge of the heart and the circulatory system.

  • Bringing our art to life!

    Published 20/10/22, by E Finnerty

    We have brought our art, geography and science topics all together to create our camouflage art.

    • First we chose a biome, which we'd learnt about in geography.

    • Then we researched this biome, and created a colour palette which would accurately represent it and the life that grows there.

    • Next we created our camouflage background using this colour palette.

    • Finally, using inspiration from our science topic about adaptation and evolution, we disguised our hands into the background we created, to allow it to become camouflaged. 

    Have a look at our fantastic work below!
