A sprinkle of magic!

The y5 cohort experienced a magical day at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour! From the moment we arrived, the children were immersed in the captivating world of Harry Potter: learning about the filming process, exploring the film sets, costumes, and even partaking in a game of Quidditch!

Scientific Enquiry

There’s no better way to delve into a scientific investigation than by getting your hands dirty, which the children learnt this afternoon. The pupils completed small group work to explore the difference between reversible and irreversible reactions with some messy results!

Movie Magic!

During their first day back, the Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in lots of exciting Harry Potter themed activities as part of our ‘The Magic of Motion’ exhibition. The children dressed up as witches and wizards and through the magic of technology, photo shopped themselves into various Harry Potter movie sets!

What makes a hero?

After learning about the Pop Art movement in the 1960s, our children have been busy creating some eye-catching Pop Art pieces, based on the professions of the experts that visited us last week. The pupils have worked extremely hard to ensure their work is vibrant, bold and exciting. Here is a small selection of their beautiful work.

Cube Investigation

This week in year 5 we have been investigating 3D shapes. Today, we challenged the children to find all the possible nets of a cube. Through perseverance, great visualisation and fantastic co-operation, all of the groups managed to find a vast majority of all 11 possibilities and had some great fun in the process.


This week, the children in 5RH have been hard at work creating exceptional Queen Elizabeth I portraits. After hours and hours of work they still aren’t all finished but I’m sure you’ll agree, the time and hard work has definitely paid off.

A banquet fit for a king!

Our in-depth look at real life heroes and villains (The Tudors) has taken us down a tasty path as we dissect the eating habits of the very privileged. Would you want to eat at a Tudor banquet? It’s a mixed bag for me, as the Tudor dishes range from delicious to down right disgusting.

Some beautiful work on show produced by children in school and at home. Cracking stuff!
