Photo Collages

As part of the 'All things Bright and Beautiful' topic, children had the challenge to find things around the school they find beautiful. They learnt how to be budding photographers and how to take photos correctly and how to zoom and refocus. They decided on 9 photos and then used an app called Pic Collage to create a photo collage of their photos. They had to think about the layout and background. They explored changing the effects of the photo, adding overlays and learnt how to crop. Mrs Smith was very impressed when she saw them. by Liam and Artie By Isabelle and Kayla By Freddie k and Lily by Alicia and Mya By Maddie and Rhys By Henry and Joshua

World Kitchen - Our views...

This term Birch class have travelled the globe in their new topic World Kitchen. Jumping from country to country they have explored different food from different countries such as: olives from Spain; bratwurst from Germany; tacos from Mexico; noodles from China; full English from the UK and many more… Birch Class have also written poems about their favourite foods, for some this had proven quite a challenge! ‘‘One of my favourite parts of World Kitchen,’’ began Charlie C ‘‘was probably when we got to make fruit salad it was really fun chopping the fruit and even more fun tasting it!’’ Ellie’s favourite part of the topic was definitely tasting the food, ‘‘all the food was really tasty, ap


Elm class have loved creating these splendid chariots. They certainly understood how gruesome the Roman gladiator fighting was, judging by the names they gave to their chariots as well as the added details such as blood splatters!

Poetry Performance

As part of our poetry topic on animals, children studied 'Walking with my Iguana' by Brian Moses. The children enjoyed it so much that Mr Smith thought they could perform just as well as Brian did. Each pair learnt a verse and then performed it with little rehearsal.

Week 1 Outdoor Learning - Water

Orienteering We started with making faces on the playground with bean bags and cones and spots. We copied the faces from a sheet which had a key at the bottom showing us what the object was. Then we went up to the playing field, at the playing field we were given a map on the map it told us where all the punches were. We had to find them in order, when we got all 6 of them you were the winner. Willow and Jewellery The first thing we did was watch Mrs Fox make a fish and a rod. Then we had a turn. It was easy but very fiddle sometimes. Some people struggled… but we all got there in the end! Then Miss Sharp showed us how to make jewellery out of elder wood. It was good fun.

We ate ice-cream it was very yummy. My friend Ollie and I ate some deer meat (venison) very chewy but very tasty (it was quite funny when Mrs. Smith ate some). I l

On the 30th of June 2016 an excited coach of school children- with high expectations- raced towards Peterborough country fair. As soon as we got there we got greeted by brightly coloured stalls, a range of animals and a smell of food, it was amazing! The first thing we did was go to see the animals- there where so many! One of my favorite bits of the whole day was probably going to see the dog and duck show it was really funny seeing the dogs chasing the ducks around a field. I don’t think I will ever forget it!!
