Inspired by our recent learning about WW2, we decided to create our own newspapers based on the events directly after Black Saturday (the first night of the Blitz). We learnt a range of ICT skills, shortcuts and word processing tricks.Read More Year 6: WW2 Newspapers
We spent this afternoon learning about Anglo-Saxon and Viking Laws and Justice. We found out that courts and trial by jury were used by the Anglo-Saxons, fines by both Vikings and Anglo-Saxons and that we are very glad that punishments have moved on from ordeals and being outlawed! We calculated how much we’d have to […]Read More Gruesome Justice – Anglo-Saxon and Viking style
Today, we got the opportunity to visit a WW2 warship. We learnt about the struggles merchant ships had when transporting goods to the UK and had a go at trying some of the roles mariners took when onboard ship.Read More Year 5 & 6 at the HQS Wellington

We’ve been using a map-style board game to practise our work on position and direction. We have a town plan and a series of challenges: placing things on the map; locating different landmarks; using points of the compass to describe location and describing quarter, half, three-quarter and full turns to navigate from place to place.Read More Position and Direction board games

We believe that climate change needs to be stopped before it’s too late. Did you know that more than 200 species on Earth become extinct every day? We don’t think that […]Read More Year 4’s protest against Climate Change!
I’m a bit behind with sharing Year 3’s wonderful artwork. As well as writing poetry inspired by Jeannie Baker’s Window, we used collage to create a view that we would like to see from our window, were we one of the characters in the book. Interestingly, there wasn’t a car, lorry or building site to […]Read More Window artwork
