Our Learning

Science - Fingerprints in Class 3
4 February 2020

We have been looking at our fingerprints in Science and the three types of patterns they have; whorl, arch and loop. We realised that although they can be classified by type, everybody has unique fingerprints.

Life Exhibition - The Life of Jesus
4 February 2020

Years 5 & 6 visited Belmont Chapel, in Exeter to explore the life of Jesus Christ and why Christians believe he is so special, through the LIFE Exhibition presented by the ICE Team.

They visited four zones where they were able to consider the historic and prophetic roots of Jesus, Jesus’ teaching, the miracles of Jesus and finally the what have we learned about Jesus.

The children really enjoyed taking part in the zones and using the interactive activities to explore the life of Jesus.

Working with City Community Trust

Class 3 are excited to be working with City Community Trust to promote healthy, active lifestyles.

We have classroom based activities before we use our outdoor space for energetic football games and fun exercises.

Science in Class 3 -Identity

In Science we are studying the theme of Identity. We have been measure our hand spans, our feet and other body spans. We collected our data then analysed our results to see if what relationships we could find between measurements. Year 6 also looked if gender had an impact on measurement.

Looking at Injustice in Class 1
19 December 2019

Injustice

We looked at the toilet twinning project and how important it was to have good sanitation in place in order to stop people from becoming ill. The children realised that this has a huge impact on children’s lives and how being healthy meant they were able to attend school and access an education.

Children thought that it wasn’t fair that parents had to choose between paying medical bills or or school fees. They were intrigued by some of the simple toilet huts that were being constructed in villages and how they were able to use materials available to them.

Class 3 Design & Technology - Completed Lighthouses
9 December 2019

After much measuring, cutting, gluing, strengthening, designing templates and nets, our lighthouses were ready to be lit. Pupils constructed circuits with switches to enable their lighthouses to flash on and off. We then photographed them using our stormy seascapes as backdrops.

Class 2 - Making Puppets
2 December 2019

Class Two have been finding out about different puppets that are used around the world. They have looked carefully at what puppets are made of and how the materials are joined. They have learnt how to use the overstitch and the running stitch to join fabric. Watch this space to see what they will be designing and making!

Inspired by our Design and Technology work designing lighthouses, a pupil from Class 3 has made a super model lighthouse as part of her home learning.
