A huge well done and thank you to all the children and staff who took part in the Extreme Reading Challenge. We had over 100 entries and it has been wonderful to see so many of you reading in different and unusual places. The staff and children loved seeing all the entries in our assembly on Thursday.
Children in Key Stage 2 have been using the Spheros as part of their computing work this half term. Children have been exploring how increasing the speed changes stopping distance whilst also looking for the most effective way of getting from a-to-b as part of various challenges. Children have needed refine their code to ensure it works.
The art gallery has had an update. Current work includes photography from year 6, painted fireworks from nursery, watercolours from year 2 and pencil work from year 5 and 4. Year 3 produced artwork as part of their family day visit to Cartwright Hall in Bradford.
Key stage 2 classes have been visited by the Google Expeditions team. Each class had thirty minutes to explore various locations as part of their topic work. Some classes went to the moon and others went deep into the Ocean. Each ‘tour’ was led by class teachers and children had the opportunity to look around the location using the virtual reality headsets (Google Cardboard) to found out more information. Although the visit was a one-off, the virtual expeditions have complimented the work done in history, geography and science.
