  • As part of our IPC topic ‘Water For All”, the Year 5 Wolves made their own water filters. Using charcoal, sand, cotton wool and a plastic bottle, we managed to successfully filter dirty brown water. We wanted to drink the clear water that came out, but Mr. Burke said that we still had to boil it first!
  • Art=Process! The basic law of children's creativity is that it's value lies not in it's results, not in the product of the creation but in the process itself. -Vygotsky
  • As part of our Topic ‘Water For All’, the children in Year 5 were asked to make their own isotonic rehydration drinks. They added salt, sugar and powdered vitamins and minerals. They then chose different flavoured juices and mixed. We then had a chance to try everyone’s creation. One or two were remarkably delicious…but some were a little more…yucky!
  • The fun way of getting children paint! This was a mixture of art, sensory and science  activity that they really enjoyed as a group.
  • In our nursery classroom children have ready access to a wide variety of equipment and materials that allow them to be actively involved in their learning experience. They are encouraged to work together that improves their language practice, socialization and cognitive exploration with fine and gross motor activities.
  • This term, Year 3 Pandas have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. Using their knowledge of symmetry, our students have been practising drawing a human face. They have worked with a lot of patience and dedication and have produced some fascinating paintings of Pharaoh Tutankhamun's golden mask.
