During their D.T. lessons, Year 2 have been exploring different types of houses, (caravans, tepee's, boats, igloos, castles etc) as well as identifying different shapes and features. After deciding who they were going to make their house for and designing it on paper; the children then investigated how to join and combine shapes to make their home. Today, Year 2 made a prototype of their house to try out their design features in 3D!
Year 3 got off to a great start on day 1 of their Design and Technology project. After investigating existing frames, they designed their own, made a prototype out of cardboard and carefully considered who they were making their frame for!

Well done children, you really have 'Made A Difference'!
learning about diwali
What a lovely morning the Year 3 children had learning about Diwali.
Ananya shared an informative presentation with the class and spoke beautifully about her beliefs and the celebration of Diwali.
The Year 3 children listened with interest and asked Ananya some super questions. They also received treats at the end of the day. Thank you Ananya.
Orienteering for children in need
What a fun and energetic afternoon Year 3 had solving the 'Children in Need' orienteering course set up around the school playground!
The children had to work in teams and follow the instructions and maps carefully to find all the clues.
They then had to collect all the letters to make a word. Back in class the children were busy mapping the different stations on their own maps and then went on to learn about 4 figure grid references!
What a great time they all had!
Reception visit the Caribbean
Reception children were whisked off to the Caribbean this week as they launched into their new topic using the story "Fruits- A Caribbean Counting Poem" as their stimulus.
As the children arrived at school they selected a Lei to wear for the day and entered the decorated classroom listening to steel drum music! They then replicated the Caribbean art work of Kate Spencer.
Later on in the day they used salt dough to create Caribbean fruits using scissors for the bumpy texture of a sweet sop fruit, as well as sorting fruits into those that come from the Caribbean and those that come from the UK.
In writing they wrote lists of the new fruits we had learnt and also created repeating patterns using them in their maths.
What a jam packed, fruit-astic week!
