In computing, Year 2 have been exploring how to make music. Today we experimented with different sounds and how to put them together.


In Art, Year 1 enjoyed adding texture to clay tiles in preparation for making a bowl! 🎨


Year 1 enjoyed dissecting a fish and using a magnifying glass to examine fish bones! 🐟🧑‍🔬



Year 5 have done an amazing job completing their computing 3D design unit to a high standard. They created nets, added & moved points on a side view and changed polygons to make packaging for a gift. Here are some examples of their work.


WOW! We are really proud of Reception Blyton class for singing and writing the spellings of the tricky word song. Mr Palmer was so impressed, that for the first time ever, he gave every child in the class a Head Teacher sticker! ⭐️


In French 🇫🇷, Year 5 have created posters about different planets of the solar system. 🌍🪐


In year 3, our Science topic this term is 'Rocks' and we have been enjoying every minute of it. We have been on the hunt for rocks around the Academy and have also spent time investigating the properties of a variety of rocks.


🎨Year 2 have created bold, bright line drawings in the style of the artist Joan Miro. Look at their fantastic drawings!🎨


Year Four’s science investigation is ready for this morning…what will they be up to?!

It has been a busy final week in Year 3. Science information posters were created and our sewing skills were put to use in DT making wallets and purses.
