Year 6 are concentrating extremely hard this morning trying to recreate the famous ‘Whaam!’ picture by Roy Lichtenstein. He was an American pop artist who based this well-known piece of artwork on a DC Comic. It is a staggering 4m long! We wonder how long it took him to finish it?

Gladstone Pottery Museum

Following on from our trip to Gladstone Pottery Museum last week we have been designing, making and learning more about the pottery industry that our area is so famous for. We would just like to share some of the highlights of our trip.
On a personal note the children were fantastic both in their enthusiasm for learning and in their behaviour. It was a pleasure to take such an amazing group of children out on a trip.

Year 3 had a fantastic day stepping back in time to learn about how fundamental Longton has been in the production of pottery in the past. The children were lucky enough to hear why factories were opened in the town, learn about the lives of the workers, watch potters in action, learn about famous pottery factories as well become potters themselves. A wonderful day had by both the children and the staff!

Yesterday Year One had an amazing day with Blue Watch at Longton Fire Station. We began by watching a training session with the police and fire fighters rescuing someone from a roof. All the local cars had a good soaking as our budding Y1 trainees had a go of squirting water, we all got soaked! Finally we saw a house filled with smoke and casualties rescued. A totally fabulous memory making day, the children were brilliant with their eagerness and questions.

Solving Problems In Year 3

This week has seen just how amazing the children in Year 3 are at overcoming problems. Their resilience has been inspiring.
This week has included researching information about Stonehenge.
The children then went on to design and construct their own models of Stonehenge, this proved to be no easy task, but just look at the results!
The children have also been solving multiplication problems by using the partitioning number skills that they learned this week.

Stone Age Homework Projects In Year 3

Once again the children in Year 3 have amazed me with their creativity and artistic talents when creating their Homework Projects. The children used many different ways to present their work, all of which were amazing. Thank you to all the adults who helped with these creations, your time and support is very much appreciated.
