    DT

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    As part of our DT this term we are putting our plans into action. Today was day one on the construction site for building our Tudor houses. We used our problem solving skills to find ways to stabilise our structures and attaching multiple layers without using any tape. We focused on our skill of handling the correct equipment in order to make precise cuts. We look forward to seeing how our houses progress as the term continues!

    Full 'STEAM' ahead!

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    We are excited about our upcoming week of focused STEAM activities since Mr K's assembly. We started off by exploring the question, what if everyone looked alike? Within our topic of Evolution and Inhertiance, we found that this couldn't be completely true due to the variations in our DNA (even for identical twins!) We looked at various examples of animals and even had our go at explaining inheritance using Mr Men and Little Miss characters!

    Music!

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 6 have been researching all about John Blanke this session. We have been looking at our end goal question of 'How significant was John Blanke?' They have been conducting research online using the laptops and found that not much is known about his birth or death, or even he real name! They were most surprised about how favoured he was by Henry VIII and how he was one of the earliest recorded black people in England after the Roman period.
