In this week’s blog, the spotlight falls on Elise, a member of Year 6 who has used her artistic talent to raise money for The Bumblebee Conservation Trust, by drawing a wonderful picture of a bee which her parents then arranged to be turned into postcards. These were then sold to the local community. In her own words, Elise explains why:
What an action packed, fun filled first term we have had back at school – it’s hard to believe it’s December already!

We have had great fun exploring the life of the Ancient Egyptians, studying some amazing
What a busy, fun first term we have had. I am immensely proud of the whole class, for jumping into life in the Juniors with both feet and a big smile!

In preparation for their Worship Assembly, year 5 researched, designed and made Roman shields. In DT, year 5 have followed instructions to create two types of Roman-inspired catapults. They have enjoyed reviewing and adapting them to see whose will launch a paperclip the furthest!
This half term, year 6 have enjoyed studying the Romans. We learnt about Roman pottery, studied designs and then practised sketching some ideas in our topic books. We chose our favourite designs to paint for our display. Within this topic, we have also researched and produced pieces of writing about why the Roman army was so successful and also considered why Caesar failed in
In Class 4K, we’ve had great fun learning all about some Incredible Invaders. In these pictures, you can see us practising our weaving techniques, just like the Anglo-Saxons! We’ve also explored the impact of the Romans in Britain – look at our display with all the things we’ve found out.
