Y5 Ancient Greek Day
To launch our new history topic, Ancient Greeks. Y5 had a day of cooking. We prepared and cooked Melomakarona (which are Greek honey-spice cookies), chicken kebabs with roasted vegetables and tzatziki dip and a Greek salad. The children worked tirelessly in the kitchen all morning to prepare this wonderous feast. In the afternoon we wrote up our recipes with a detailed method including modal and imperative verbs.
Finally, once all the work was done we sat down and ate all of the wonderful food that was prepared.

Summer Half Term!
Year One have worked so hard this half term… All of the staff are so proud of how amazing they have been settling back into school life and throwing themselves into their learning. We have been extremely lucky to be able to regularly visit the Outdoor Classroom, this has helped to inspire our learning and is something the children have really enjoyed.
Year 3 Sculpture
Year 3 had fun making these bowls inspired by Kandinsky. They used paper mache and thought carefully about how their designs could be inspired by him.
Brilliant Board Games
Year 6 have produced some absolutely brilliant board games this week as part of their DT project. From thinking carefully about their initial concept and theme, to considering their own game’s effectiveness during the evaluation process, they have demonstrated great creativity and reflection. We definitely think there could be some future product designers amongst them!
