Year 2 Robots

By Art, Design Technology, Year 2

Year 2 had a great time designing and making robots to support their design and technology learning.

To complete the project the children raced their robots and observed which traveled the fastest and furthest.


Well done year 2!

Shadow Puppet Theatre in Y3!

By Art, Design Technology, Science, Year 3

To round off our learning all about light and shadows, we put on a show today using lollipop sticks, a torch and Mr Woodhouse! We know that opaque objects make the best shadows by blocking the light so created characters using black cardboard. Our theatre was not the most professional looking but it certainly did the job, with extra thanks to Mr Woodhouse and his expert torch holding!

Well done year 3, it is brilliant to see you apply what you have learnt this half term!

Roman Shields

By Design Technology, History, Uncategorized

Year 4 have designed and created their own Roman shields (scutums). We looked at pictures of  Roman scutums to help us create authentic Roman shield designs. Furthermore, we reinforced our shields using PVA glue and scrap paper to make them strong enough for battle!

Giacometti Sculptures

By Art, Design Technology, History, Year 4

This week, year 4 have been studying the artist and sculpturist Giacometti. We then created our own Giacometti inspired “sculptures” of Queen Boudicca using aluminium foil.


Delightful Greek Food!

By Design Technology, History, Year 5

As part of our ‘Ancient Greece’ topic, Year 5 looked at the different types of food that the Ancient Greeks would have eaten. The foods they tried were: Green & Black olives, Greek Yoghurt, Pita Bread, Feta Cheese, Halloumi Cheese and Tzatziki. They carried out a food tasting of each food, looking at texture, aroma, taste, appearance and giving each a rating out of 5 stars.

The most popular Greek Food was Halloumi cheese, with lots comparing the taste to that of cheddar string cheese.

Year 5 will use their food tasting notes to help them write a ‘Greek Food Experience’ food critique.
