Other Events

Dragon’s Den Circuit Challenge

Yr 6 Scarlet had a great time trying to make and then improve a selection of circuits in Science as we started our topic of Electricity this week. Their challenge was to build a successful circuit with a number of features. Great team work and good listening skills meant they successfully impressed Mrs Melia. Well done boys!

No time to be 'board' in Year 5!

In Year 5 we completed a fantastic Art, Design and Technology topic buy evaluating the board games we had made by playing them. All based on the theme of space, we had many inventive and creative games which the boys loved playing. My particular favourite was “Spaceopoly”

Volcanoes are go!

Year 5 started learning about volcanoes and how they are formed this week. Starting with a tectonic plate experiment and finishing with trying to make our own 3D paper volcanoes, which took a great deal of figuring out, it looks like we are going to have fun this half-term!

Year 4 Visit to Chester

Year 4 Navy and Royal pupils visited the Grosvenor Museum in Chester as part of their Romans’ project. In one day, they were archaeologists studying artefacts, researchers finding out facts about Roman life, builders of Roman baths, grinders of herbs to add flavour to a Roman banquet, and Roman soldiers marching to the barked orders of a stern Centurion.

Languages Club

We had an exciting meeting this week with the arrival of German languages assistant Nadine. After the boys had showed off the German that they had had learnt so far, they then had the chance to have a conversation in German with her. Great effort boys, well done!

Year 3 Challenge Homework.

Mrs Murphy set Year 3 their first ‘Challenge Homework’ of the year over half term. The boys responded with much enthusiasm, presenting board games, models and even a quiz that the whole class could take part in. Well done Year 3! (AE1, AE2, AE3)
