Design a Bedroom
Year 6 applied their maths skills to this project. First they had to draw a plan to scale showing the room and furniture. they then worked to decorate and furnish the room keeping within a given budget. the focus then switched to DT, making a 3D model, and ICT, showing the process. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our results. Press the Play buttons in the videos.

World Book Day logo

World Book Day is an annual event which aims to focus our attention on books, often in different and unusual ways. It also raises funds for children in other parts of the world where they are less fortunate than we are and do not have books automatically available.

As usual, we have a range of competitions for all the children, hopefully something to appeal to everyone.

Portals to the Past 2018 Year 3 had a fun-filled day where they were transported to prehistoric Britain by Portals to the Past. The children took part in many activities, from hunting and gathering to learning about Stonehenge, where they had to put into practice their teamwork skills and build Stonehenge. The children moved through time to the Bronze Age and finally arrived in the Iron Age where the children re-enacted a battle scene with the leader of the Iceni tribe, Boudicca.
The children once again looked great, so a big thank you to our parents for helping their children get into the true spirit.
