Play is Learning

As our classroom display explains, Reception class believe that play underpins learning and all aspects of children’s development. Through play, children develop their language skills, emotions, creativity and their social and intellectual skills. They also practice new ideas and skills, take risks, show imagination and solve problems on their own or with others. Look at all the learning and fun that took place while the children were exploring the resources in their new classroom!

Super Circuit Work

Year 4 & 5 have been learning about electricity and electrical circuits. They have been using circuit equipment to create circuits which light up, make a sound and generate a motor. They can identify when a circuit is incomplete or complete and can determine which items will be found inside real life objects such as fans, doorbells and torches. The class also built their own switches and tested them in crazy circuits with other objects such as spoons, foil, paper clips and wire. Their next challenge is to create a wire buzzer game!

Railway Debate

In Literacy class, Year 3 children took part in a mock Town Hall debate, discussing the age of the railway in role as a character from history. As a class, they considered the pros and cons of railways and the different opinions that were held by people at the time (in the early 1800s). In the debate, the children put across their points of view about the idea of a railway being built. They enjoyed preparing their speech and saying it out loud with expression and wearing costumes or using props. Such great acting, Year 3!
