Year 4 Making Bath Bombs!

In our last science lesson, we made our own colourful, fragrant and fantastic bath bombs! We used a range of ingredients and we had to do some careful measuring and mixing, before scooping the mixtures into the moulds.


After the bath bombs had set, we dropped them into a nice bath! Take a look at what happened next!

A lovely start to International Week!

We have had a great start to International Week in Nursery and Reception, with the children enjoying learning about Poland and Polish culture. We have been making Polish cucumber dip, and can’t wait to try it later! We have also been exploring symmetry in Polish folk art called Wycinanki, making our own designs by cutting and sticking indoors, or using natural materials outside. Then we had some very special visitors! Zuzanna, Maia and Victoria came to to tell us all about going to school in Poland, read some Polish poetry and tell us about national traditional dress. Thank you so much girls! Dziękuję!

Year 2 visit the Walker Art Gallery

Year 2 had a great time at the Walker Art Gallery last week, we looked at lots of modern art and discussed how we create abstract art using different sized shapes, zig zag lines and squiggles. We took some great pieces of work back to school with us and had time to have a quick look around the gallery before lunch.

Hunt for Stick Man!

We have started reading our new book ‘Stick Man’ in Year 2 and after practicing reading through our story map with some great actions, we went on a hunt for Stick Man outdoors. We searched all over for the best ‘Stick Man’ sticks to create his body, arms, legs and super long nose! We love being outdoors exploring our environment and can’t wait to create our very own Stick Men next week.
