    D.T - Eiffel Tower Structure

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    To celebrate the 131st birthday of the Eiffel Tower, the children were asked to find any suitable resources (sticks, straws, twigs etc) to construct their own version of the monument. The children had to select their own resources and then use a photo prompt to design with purpose. Some children have asked if they can take a couple of weeks and try and sew a version. We shall wait with baited breath to see the results.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Today was going to be treat for the winning house and Evie was a little upset that she was going to miss out. She turned that frown upside down by building an assault course with her mum and brother. Ingenious.

    We would like to give a massive thanks to all the parents and carers during this difficult time. Your support and determination to educate your children, whilst carrying on with your jobs, be it working from home or a key worker is astonishing and we are so proud of you. Thank you so much for all the photos you are sending of completed work or children just out enjoying themselves. We are missing them dearly and these little snippets are truly awesome to see. Have a great Easter break, take care and stay safe!

    Maths in the real world

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    A practical maths lesson this morning. Everyone had to have a good rummage through cupboards and fridges to find at least 5 food items to weigh. Some children chose to look on the labels to see the weight whilst some children used weighing scales to measure them for themselves. The results were then plotted onto a graph. Lots of thinking involved as the children had to choose which intervals to use and label the graph correctly.

    Art In Nature

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The children were asked to look around the house, garden or local environment (when out for their daily exercise!) for natural resources to replicate some of the work by Andy Goldsworthy. His work can sometimes involve complex repeated patterns or simply convey his mood whilst in those surroundings. A shout out to Frances for her stunning, some might say gold worthy, piece.of art. Please take photos of any other pieces of "Goldsworthy" work so we can make a beautiful display.

    History - Home Learning Task

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Our history lesson this week involved looking at a series of houses throughout the ages. The children had to choose three and sequence them in chronological order. They then had to try and solve a series of clues from prompts given to determine which era their chosen homes originated. The children were able to explain which house they thought was the best and explain what materials each house was likely to be made from.

    Spanish

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We aren't going to let COVID-19 stop us from getting our MFL on. The children were sent a link to a video all about what you'd find in a Spanish supermarket - probably not eggs, pasta, flour or toilet roll at the moment! They then had to draw as many of the food items that they could remember and write the Spanish word next to it. excelente trabajo de todos ustedes!

    Writing in role - Home Learning Task

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We are trying to encourage the children to write something every day. Alongside their diaries, the children were asked to photograph themselves as a healthcare professional and write some instructions on how they want us to keep safe. Lots of topical and relevant information and a little bit of humour dropped in. Well done everybody. Keep updating those diaries!

    Art - Home Learning Task

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    One of the objectives we have to cover, as part of the art and design curriculum, is to create original pieces based on the work of notable artists. The children researched Dutch artist Pied Mondrian and were instructed to create their own mini masterpiece. The only instructions they were given were that they had to use a ruler and no more than 4 colours. Alana, Noah, Evie and Mason emailed their finished pictures for the blog. Top marks to Jack for replicating his design using Lego bricks.

    Creating Rhythm

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Using digital technology, the children have experimented with creating their own rhythm and pulse by building up various beats. The finished recordings range from 60 beats per minute to a dance-floor pulsating 220bpm.
