 Plants WOW Day 29th April 2019

We had a fabulous start to the term beginning our new topic ‘What’s so amazing about plants and flowers?’

We worked with Mrs Riley to plant our own sunflowers for our growing competition.

We studied Vincent Van Gogh’s painting ‘Sunflowers’, created sketches using shading and tone and made some wonderful creatures to live alongside the plants.

Come and visit our corridor to see our amazing artwork.





WOW Day Spring 2

Our Italian restaurant was a great success! During the morning, we cooked pasta and pizza with Mrs Riley and Mrs Stenson.

We also created place mat fact files, menus, bunting and found some Italian words we could use during the afternoon in the restaurant.

In the afternoon, we tasted olives, salamis and some Italian cheeses.

After that, we all sat together in our Italian restaurant and enjoyed pizza, pasta, salad, tiramisu, pana cotta and gelato!

We were all really full by home time!




Our Roman WOW Day 8th January 2019

We had a fabulous start to the term with a super Roman WOW Day. We worked in teams to create shields, swords and daggers.

We also made scrolls using Roman numerals and dressed up in a toga!

Please come and visit our corridor to see our creations.



Autumn 2 WOW Day

We had a wonderful time making moving robots today.

In teams of three, we planned and made robot heads which have eyes that light up using an electrical circuit

and a mouth that opens using tubing and balloons.




Iron Man WOW Day 

4th September 2018 

We launched our new Iron Man topic with our fabulous WOW day. Over the course of the day, we read the introduction of the book by Ted Hughes, used drama techniques to imagine being the Iron Man stood at the top of the cliff and produced some wonderful pieces of art. 

During our first week we have also created some of our own Iron Men. Please visit our corridor to see our wonderful work!
