Learning walk around our school

This week, our Primary teachers took part in a learning walk around our school, the focus of the learning walk was Mathematics. Each teacher spent time in all of the Primary classes. The children relished the opportunity to talk to the other teachers about their learning and discuss their work. The teachers all felt that this was a valuable experience and a wonderful opportunity to see all the fantastic learning taking place

M1 and M2 Making an advertisement

It has been a busy week for the students in M1 and M2. The M1s are busy learning about advertising and how it works. Today they have been planning and making an advertisement about a product they created. They have had to think about the message the advertisement is trying to send and use the various advertising elements they have learnt about. 

The M2s are well into creating their version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Their setting is a school for troubled kids, and they have been working hard to learn their lines and think about how they are going to create the effects they want. Each student is in charge of directing a chosen scene from the play, making choices about the setting and how they want each of the characters to express their lines. 

Both groups will be sharing their learning with the school community, the M1s will be creating an advertising campaign to help students and staff think and act positively. The M2s will be making a film of their Macbeth and having a blockbuster release of the film to the school community.

Circulatory System

As part of their Science unit on the human body, the Year 6's have been learning all about the circulatory system. The class went to the brand new and exciting Science labs in Le Roc to spend time with one of the school's specialist Science teachers, Paul. They learned lots of fascinating facts about both human and animal circulatory systems and applied their collaboration and inquiry skills by dissecting an animal heart. They discovered all sorts of surprises including the feel, size and shape.

Earth and Space

In Science, the Year 5 children are learning about Earth and Space. They learned the order of the planets and used proportion and ratio to make a scaled model of the planets' distances from the sun. They have each researched a planet of their choice as well as designing their own new planet. They then made these new planets using colours, filter paper and water to give the gaseous effect we see on planets.

Fine Motor lessons

In our Fine Motor lessons this week we have had lots of fun. We have been practicing writing patterns with our eyes closed, using charcoal. We also did some work with peg boards, threaded beads and used different pens to practice letter formations. The highlight was building things with lego using only one hand (the hand we write with).
