Visiting sculptor Neil Wood
14th June 2022
Today Year 5 enjoyed a visit by the amazing sculptor Neil Wood. He showed us how to create our own tile. We made our designs using a range of junk materials, which we pressed into the clay. We then cast plaster of paris over our work. When the plaster was dry, we peeled off the clay and admired our plaster tiles. Thank you for an amazing day Neil!
Roman Day XXIV/V/MMXXII
Wow what an amazing day!
We met Lucius (Andy) and had a guide to Roman armour and tactics. Then we staged some battles of our own; Romans vs Barbarians.
Back in the classroom we used our archaeological and investigational skills to uncover actual historical artefacts (items which had been recovered by metal detectorists).
Then in the afternoon after a Q and A session we learned how to play a range of Roman games, Ludus, Five Lines and Three Mens Morris.
We have all learned so much and had a great day!

DT Making Soft Toys
This week we have designed and made our own soft toys using felt. We have learned how to sew a blanket stitch as well as how to use needle threaders (which were really useful!)
We are really proud of all our hard work - don't they look great!
Wow what a great morning!
Dave from Auriga Astronomy was fantastic. We were all very excited to enter the planetarium, and the shows were amazing. First we went on a journey around the solar system, and then we found out about mans missions to the Moon.
We also found out about the Artemis program at NASA which is due to launch in the next few months.
Thursday 9th December
Today we had an amazing day. We dressed as ancient greeks and joined Agaeus the Spartan as he told us about the Greek way of life.
We made a mosaic tile, Laurel wreath and a charm bracelet. It was a fantastic day!
