Year 6 in the 1940s

 A fantastic effort on their costumes when our new Year 6 pupils went back to 1940s Britain to launch their World War 2 topic. On  Wednesday 12th September the children spent the day on four different activities, each one giving them a brief introduction to the topic. A walk along the railway line to the station to be evacuated, cooking with rationing recipes, sewing for 'make-do-and-mend' and a full boot camp military session to join the army! The children had a wonderful day and it was certainly a 'sensational start' to the theme for this term!

Year 5 in Space!

Details of the Year 5 sensational start coming soon!

Year 4 make London!

On Thursday 13th September Year 4 had a sensational start to their new topic with a junk modelling day to recreate some very well known London landmarks! Later in the term the Year 4 pupils are off on a very exciting trip to London - keep visiting our blog and Twitter to follow all the exciting work they do in the build up to their trip!

Year 3 making caves!

On Tuesday 11th September, Year 3 launched their new theme ‘stones, bones and no I-phones’ by turning their classroom into caves and working on some fabulous cave art! Come back to the blog son to see what other exciting adventures the children have in the stone ages!

Year 2 mystery boxes

On 10th September a mystery box arrived in the Year 2 classrooms. The children had some great ideas about what might be inside - come back to the blog soon to see what they find out!

Year 1 out and about

Our Year 1 pupils kicked the year off with a sensational start for their 'Through the Key Hole' theme. The children went out and about in the local area for a Mickleover discovery Hunt to explore the different house types in Mickleover by finding clues and following a map. A great start to their theme work.
