Transition In Year 3

Wow! What an amazing morning full of art, design, laughter and smiles. The children made some fantastic Egyptian necklaces which will form part of their first display in Year 3.
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came along it was lovely to meet you all.

Year 6 Transition Morning

This morning, the children moving into Year 6 in September worked extremely hard making a model Anderson Shelter. We really enjoyed working together in our new classroom and look forward to getting our first display up ready for September.

It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents lending a hand, we really couldn’t have done it without you.

Amazing Anderson Shelters

The children moving into Year 6 in September have been introduced to the World War II topic by making model Anderson Shelters. Did you know they were named after Sir John Anderson (the man Neville Chamberlain put in charge of Air Raid Precautions in November 1938) who asked engineer William Patterson to design a cheap shelter that could go in people’s gardens. A simple but ingenious design used by over two and a half million people during the war! The small size of the model – particularly the vegetables- proved a challenge to make but very enjoyable. Look how much fun they had – especially the parents!

Lucas is really excited about our current dinosaur topic! At home he decided to make his own dinosaur scene. He brought his fabulous artwork into school and described the landscape and the different types of dinosaurs to the rest of the children. He is quite the expert! We think it’s fantastic! Well done, Lucas.


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.
