Summer topic


In Maths, we made cocktails for a Roman banquet. After making samples, we chose the best, then we had to make a larger batch that tasted exactly the same. We used the same ratio of ingredients to achieve the same taste!

Science Day

On Science Day, we tried to prove if Leonardo da Vinci's theories of anatomy (The Vetruvian Man) were correct. This also involved a lot of maths - measuring, fractions and scaling.

S P A C E !

As part of our Space topic, we went to the Science Museum. We saw rockets, lunar modules, command modules and an IMAX 3D film about life aboard the International Space Station! It was out of this world!

In English, we explored the dusty, old air raid shelter. Lots of strange, old and broken things were inside - not to mention enormous cobwebs!

We used this experience in our writing, describing what we could see, smell and feel.

After looking at the Sci Fi film posters of John Alvin, Drew Struzan and Reynold Brown, we designed some of our own.

We worked so hard when Commonwealth champion Steve Frew visited the school. What a workout!

Although we were a bit tired by the end...
