This term has been such a treat. We really enjoyed a visit from engineers from Atkins Engineering, learning about electrical circuitry and design, making fun fan boats to race in a temporary pool in the playground. We have also loved working with a group of dance and drama facilitators every Friday, exploring topics such as belonging, inclusivity and community building. Our creativity has blossomed! In English, we have been amazed, disturbed and excited in equal measure during our topic about Hurricane Katrina, culminating in some beautiful poetry.
This certainly has been a term to remember! We have enjoyed a mind-blowing Art & Maths week, during which we learnt to use traditional draftsman skills to create one point perspective drawings, and mono prints inspired by our class novel, Skellig. We enjoyed a parkour session at Cotham School, and learnt to negotiate an obstacle course with special rolls, falls and jumps. We have been enjoying bread-making each Friday, along with board games sessions, when we learn new board games from all over the world, and find new ways of enjoying each other’s company!
