Year 5 investigate something rather smelly – Viking Poo!

It’s a messy job but someone’s got to do it!
This week, we had a very interesting delivery from an archaeologist -some Viking poo! We were all rather intrigued as to why we would be looking at this interesting specimen. In order to see what they ate, we had to get our hands dirty, and research the poo to see what we could find.

Year 1 chicks hatch!

Year 1 have been VERY excited this week, as we had a delivery of some VERY special chicken eggs – they arrived on Monday, started to wobble on Tuesday, one started to hatch on Wednesday and then when we came into school on Thursday morning 7 had hatched!

Year 5 become ‘law makers!’

This week we had a visit from Gillian – from ‘Out-Reach Within Parliament’. We took part in workshops based around democracy, making laws and campaigning for change.

Year 5 become anglo-saxon designers!

In year 5 we have had great fun designing and making Anglo Saxon brooches! After researching different patterns, we designed our own brooch – thinking carefully about the materials we could use to make our brooches look authentic. We think our finished products look fantastic!

West Lane ‘draw’ against English Martyrs!

At last night’s football match against The English Martyr’s, our team played extremely well together and we drew 1-1!
Fantastic team spirit and great sportsmanship was shown by all – well done to Adam, Mckenzie, Tre, Ellie, Holly, Spencer, Sam and Harvey!

Year 1 test their boats and sail away with Columbus!

Before half term, Year 1 started learning about Christopher Columbus – his 3 ships (The Pinta, The Nina and The Santa Maria). Since then, we have investigated materials (and their properties) further and have made our own boats. We tested them and…..every single one of them floated!

Reception celebrate Chinese New Year!

Reception have loved learning all about Chinese New Year this half-term. They have looked at the customs and traditions that are carried out during this festival – their favorite part being learning about the year in which they were born.

Year 6 make their teachers disappear!

Year 6 had a ‘marvellous’ time during World Book Day! We have been looking at writing to inform during our Literacy lessons – thinking about different genres which have this purpose. We have been looking at instructional writing on the topic of ‘How to make your teacher disappear’ and we made some marvellous malevolent medicine mixtures…
