Royal banquet day!

July 14, 2017

The wait was finally over! Our medieval day was here! We had a fantastic morning Tudor dancing and designing place mats and then a fun filled afternoon making catapults and weapons! We then fired Pom poms all around the classroom! What a day!

Little Canada- The Final Day

July 10, 2017

After a weekend delay for a sleep break, here are the pictures from the final day where buggies were built and raced, children were driven up the wall (well, climbed) instead of the teachers and there was a spring in our step as we played Aeroball. Despite the early morning wake up calls, surprisingly few napped on the coach. What a fantastic week- well done Year 6, you should be really proud of yourselves.


Wriggly shapes

July 8, 2017

If an object can move about on its own (without any electricity or batteries), then it must be alive … right? We were challenged to think abut this in Year 3 ARTY SCIENCE CLUB when we were given some cellophane shapes to hold in our hands.  The coloured shapes started to twist and wriggle around! We decided they weren’t actually alive because they didn’t eat or breathe or do any of the other things that living creatures can do.

But what was causing them to move?  We explored whether it was the heat or the dampness from our hands that was making them bend and flip.

Then we made our own shapes to find which ones were the best at wriggling!


Scientists to Artists!

July 8, 2017

Hedgehogs are so talented and adaptable, we were able to switch in just one day from super scientists to talented artists!

On Friday we spent the day creating the mini beast clay tiles we had planned.  We worked really hard to create texture on our background.

Creating Texture

 

Then we had to create and attach our mini beast, we had to work quickly because it was hot and the clay started to harden.  Have a look at some of our finished tiles.

 

We now have to patient and wait for them to dry before we can glaze them.


Little Canada Day 4- High Wires and High Energy Disco Dancing

July 6, 2017

The sun has set on another fantastic day and Year 6 have spent most of it up in the sunny sky, tackling Jacob’s Ladder, the trapeze and climbing wall before coming back to earth for some problem solving. There was fantastic teamwork on display and lots of encouragement, another excellent day that ended in lots of interesting dance moves at the disco (teachers included!). Lots of tired and tanned children will be returning tomorrow!

Little Canada Day 3- Teamwork, Timing and Technique

July 5, 2017

What a day Year 6 have had today! The dragon boating got very competitive (mostly between the adults!) and was a fabulous display of the 3 Ts: teamwork, timing and technique. Great work everyone and no complaining when splashed by over zealous teachers (although Hugo agreed that it was worth it for 3 victories)! So many have conquered some fears today on the giant swing, abseiling and zip wire- we’re proud of you all- the children will have plenty to share when they get home and here’s a few more action shots…
