STEM Mai 2019

To launch our new topics ‘I like to move it!’ and ‘Incredible Inventions’, KS2 held a super STEM day. We used our knowledge of science, technology, engineering and maths to solve a series of problems upsetting Mr Faulkner! He was really pleased with our creative solutions. Da iawn pawb!

 

Underground, Overground... Mawrth 2019

Children in KS2 have been thinking about ‘connections’. After learning about and creating the sounds of the London Underground, we created poems using metaphor and presented them in the style of a tube map. Inspired by Banksy, we created artwork with a message; encouraging people to connect in person and with the outdoors, instead of through screens!

The History of Flight ✈️ Spring 2019

As part of our travel themed topics, 3/4P, 4/5SL and 6J joined together to celebrate all things aeronautical. We learnt about the history of flight, investigated the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and created loop gliders, investigating which would fly the furthest. Finally, we collaborated on a Da Vinci inspired flying machine mural! Take a look…

Year 5 and 6 have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to take part in a tag rugby after school club, run by a professional coach from Luctonians. They have all really enjoyed the sessions.

Here’s what the children have to say about it:

“I enjoyed the chance to be active!”

“It’s a great opportunity to work as a team.”

Dragon Catching June 2017 Mehefin 2017

IMG_6577Due to the recent soaring temperatures, there has been an increase in the number of speckled egg shells found all around Wales. 5P and 6J have been busy planning how to catch the culprits and have tried to get their hands on a real life baby dragon!

We began by planning suitable traps and locations to catch the dragon in. Following this, we used our literacy skills to write instructions for other people who would like to recreate our traps.

We had great fun setting our traps and night vision camera to try to catch a glimpse of the creature.

This project has given us the opportunity to use our numeracy skills to work out how to care for the dragon and to learn all about adaptation for environments. We are now busy working on green screen news reports.

UPDATE: Take a look at our display of our fantastic work!
