Our Lampedusa Project Workshop

We worked with Mrs Baker and Mrs Woodhead from CAFOD. We spent time reflecting on the plight of refugees. We have produced work to form part of a display on the Lampedusa Cross which will travel around the local parishes over the coming months.

 

Year 5 traveled back to 1887 to see what school was like for Victorian children.

 They experienced life in the Victorian classroom. Activities included: arithmetic, copy writing, drill and an object lesson. The children enjoyed using slate boards and dip pens to write with.

Fractions Challenge

Our challenge was to cut a donut in to 8 equal pieces using only 3 cuts with the knife. After much discussion we finally cracked the challenge and celebrated by eating the donut!

Can you figure out how we did it?

'Eggciting Times'

We successfully hatched nine chicks (7 girls and 2 boys). We looked after them very well before they went back to the farm. We shared ideas for names for 2 of the chicks and then voted for our favourites. The winners were 'Sir Chirpsalot' and 'Chickalulu'!

 

Artists at Work!

We worked with artist Mrs Wood who guided us through drawing and painting a piece of artwork based on William Morris' 'The Strawberry Thief.'

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We created our own 'Garden of Remembrance'
