This half term we have been busy improving our sewing skills. We have been learning how to do running and blanket stitch. Then using these skills to create our polar animal decorations ready for hanging up at home! Have a look at what we’ve produced…
This half term we have had two Science students from Sheffield University visit our classes. They taught us about micro-organisms. We learnt that they are all around us. Some are helpful, some are not! We tested how much bacteria was on our hands by pressing on agar plates which the students took to their lab […]

The results are in and the panel’s top-scoring book was […]
Year 6 have been designing prototype mountain shelters using Computer Aided Design software TinkerCAD. Designing in 3D allows children to consider a wide range of design aspects and should lead to some well-thought-out projects. Now children will be using their DT skills to bring their projects to life.

We returned to the classroom to make […]

Y5 have continued their Out and About Learning Journey by learning about map symbols, how they are used to mark features on maps and how they can be useful for interpreting maps and for planning or following a route. The children began by looking at different maps and getting to grips with the Ordnance […]
Having already won their two previous heats in style, the Year 6 athletics team came a very respectable fifth place in the city finals today. The children competed with grace and humility throughout the competition and to place in the top five primary schools in Sheffield is a massive achievement!
As part of our Pole to Pole learning journey we have been learning how to model clay to form a polar animal of our choice. We thought carefully about how to mix our paints to create the appropriate colours for our polar animals and habitats. See if you can recognise which polar region they came […]
