Staff, parents and children were treated to a fantastic 'Musicfest' on Wednesday. Mrs Flynn led the children through a medley of songs which demonstrated just how much progress the children have made in their guitar and ukulele lessons this year. Thank you, Mrs Flynn and children!
Which hull 'shape' makes the most effective ship for speed and 'manoeuvrability'? We looked at water resistance and wind resistance and conducted fair tests before we found the answer. The 'winning' ship was not the shape we originally predicted, but this generated some great discussion when explaining the reasons for the results.
Here are some photos of the children in Year 5 and 6 who attend Rugby Club on a weekly basis taking in the Elite Rugby Festival earlier this month. They were amazing! Thank you Wayne, Jose and everyone from Team Elite!
The three Vikings who visited from Jofor's Hall gave us a fascinating insight into what life must have been like all those years ago when they settled in the British Isles. The children are going to use the information, history, knowledge and the newly learnt vocabulary they have gained from the Vikings, to add detail and realistic description when writing their newspaper reports and recounts.
Bjorn showed us the weapons he had made using authentic Viking methods and processes.
Finn explained about how animals were hunted not only for meat but also for their skins. The skins were used to keep the Vikings warm, line the walls and floors of their huts and to make every day objects and utensils.
