Mapping in Class Three

Class 3 have started their topic on mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes. We have learnt all about Mount Everest and now know some amazing facts, including the dangers climbers face. We have also mapped the major mountain ranges and then practised our map reading skills when looking at the location of Scarfell Pike.

Dragon Eyes

Class 4 have completed an exciting project inspired by mythical creatures when studying the Ancient Greeks last term.

We created studies of dragon eye details using ink pens, water colours and pencils.  Carefully studying texture, shape, line, tone and pattern.  This led on to creating a 3d eye in clay where we extended our skills using this media previously when we made our clay plaques for the celebration of the Queen’s jubilee last summer.


Class 2 have absolutely loved their last week of the Spring Term! It started with our school trip to Lytham St. Anne’s, for which the weather couldn’t have been kinder. We observed the outside and the indside of the windmill and the children produced some fantastic observational drawings of the building. The Victorian museum on the ground floor of the windmill was a great taster for some of our history learning that we will be undertaking in the Summer term. As well as learning about the purpose and history of the windmill, the volunteers from the Lytham Heritage Group, also showed us around the lifeboat museum. We enjoyed discounted ice cream from Andy the ice cream man and a lovely walk, before returning to school.

For the remainder of the week, we were designing and constructing our own windmills. The children showed fantastic patience and resilience when assembling the main parts, in order to make sure their models were stable and effective. It was another fantastic week of Design and Technology and Mrs Mason and I were were so impressed with the children’s achievements. Well done Class 2!
