After a very successful Rotherham Schools Picture This project 2016 we will again be participating in this great themed project.  

Our topic this year is related to the Dutch master Breugel and his painting “Children’s Games” completed in 1560.

As part of the project year 5 will be learning and investigating toys and games of yesteryear. We will be making our own versions for example: whistles, articulated dolls, model boats and cam toys.

Additionally we will be completing our Anglo-Saxon theme from last term.

Just a few back stage pictures of some of Y5 children who took part in our annual performing arts production of Peter Pan Jnr

We learned more about visual impairment when we were visited by Stephen and his trainee guide dog puppy Leo.

Summer Term 1

Beast Creator

A predominantly science based project

A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He’ll tickle your skin then go in for the sting!
Arachnids, invertebrates, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and breath darkened rocks… Come search for these minibeasts, and let’s sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it?
Can you draw it or make it?
Build a bug hotel or a wonderful womery – then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go!
Discover where in the world you’ll find the deadliest beasts – scorpions, ants and venomous spiders… perhaps the Vespa mandarina japonica is the one that you fear?
Why not become a ‘Beast Creator’? Selectively breed a killer predator that saves the world from a super-strong aphid.
You’ll be a hero
