Cannon Hall Farm

As part of our Animals topic this term, the children visited Cannon Hall Farm! We learned about the different animals on the farm, what they eat and when they have their babies. We even met some meerkats, where we knew most of the facts shared with us by the farm staff already thanks to our learning through the book Meerkat Mail!

On The Move Focus Week

The class was commissioned to design and build Vehicles of the Future by Dream Transport Ltd. We researched modern and futuristic cars then drew, built and decorated them. Some lucky class members visited BMW Stratstone in Leeds and saw the BMW i8 - a plugin hybrid sports car.

On The Move Focus Week
Science Super Learning Day

We focused on our inquiry skills. We carried out fair tests and recorded our results to help us answer questions. Which aeroplane design is the most aerodynamic? How can we prove it? What materials sink or float? Why? How could we prove it?

Rainbow Factory visit Primrose Hill

During Write Now Focus Week, where our school's learning was based around The Dark by Lemony Snicket, the amazing Rainbow Factory came in and created a fully immersive experience of the story for Year 1 and 2. Our KS1 classes took part in dance, drawing and writing activities and loved every minute! For more information about the Rainbow Factory please visit https://www.rainbowfactorykids.com/

We had so much fun learning about light and where it comes from! We managed to convince Dr Doom to let us keep the light by writing poems and singing songs about light. We also made stained glass style art that lets light through.

Art Super Learning Day

The children learned drawing techniques and printing skills with our special guest artist James. We all had a lot of fun!
