Today we discovered some Viking artefacts (thank you Mr Widdowson and your amazing 3D printer) and used spoons no brushes to delicately uncover these riches. We then had to use the books, iPads and laptops to find out what we had uncovered. We then presented our findings to the rest of the class. True historians in actions! Continue reading

Upper school have been really fortunate with the weather today, as today was the day we decided to make our Humas Sundials. We drew our shadows at 9.00, 10.00, 11.00, 12.00 and 1.00. We tried for 2.00 but the clouds had other ideas for us. We noticed that our shadows got shorter til midday, then started to get longer again. Some of us had a few problems with the shadows of the school covering our sundials. Great fun was had by all, despite the cold, windy weather! Continue reading

Wow! Upper school have blown us away today. We have been learning about the Earth this week with our question of 'Is the Earth flat or Spherical?' We culminated our learning in a debate and both sides were very convincing. Please ask your child to give you some points for both sides of the argument.

After some children had made unfair swaps with the football cards, we decided to only have them in school for Golden Time where a panel of experts are waiting nearby to ensure our values of INTEGRITY and HONESTY beat the negative values of GREED. Any swaps are talked through with our panel, to make sure everyone is happy and no one makes an unfair swap. You can see how successful the Goldren Time was. A huge thank you to Fred, Josh, Sam and Noah! I couldn't have don it without you! Continue reading
