Year One

Elastic band powered car

Year One worked so hard on making cars this morning. They were not easy as I found out! I had to use lots of sellotape to make sure the wheels didn’t come off. I know you all had fun and it might have inspired you into making other wheeled vehicles- or robots! Here are some of the pictures.....

Year Five 9.2.21

Space Art

Year Five enjoyed a session on Tuesday with Lancashire Adult Learning. They made various pictures based on space. They look fab!

Year Six enjoyed a session with Lancashire Adult Learning. They learnt lots and enjoyed some practical activities.

Tonight we found out all about Christingles and how Christians count down to Christmas. We received a pack with all the materials in to make our own christingles and we followed the instructions with the team step by step. We found out what each part of the christingle represents. After we painted a paper plate to create an advent picture. The children all had fun!

Festive family fun.

Well done to Year 3 who took part in the STEAM session this afternoon with Lancashire Adult Learning. They completed three tasks which involved Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. They all had great fun...

 

They had fun whilst learning about variables. They worked out which material was the best, card or paper, when making their rockets. Look out for the next sessions to join in! 

Thank you so much to those parents who joined in from Reception and Year One for the spooky craft zoom session. It was the first time we had done such an event and I’m sure you will agree it was great! Here are examples of the bookmark and the lantern that were made......

 

I will be setting up more of these style involvements and will try and vary the classes each time. There are various online courses etc.. detailed below on their web page. Some are zoom type meetings and others you can access in your own time. Have a browse!
