Design and Technology

In Design and Technology, we have been making linkages and levers using card and split pins. We will use this knowledge when we make our Christmas cards.

Father Andrew visit

Father Andrew visited school to talk to us about the bible and why it is important. We looked at different versions and talked about where some of the stories came from.

Play Leaders

We took part in a sports leadership session to develop our skills as play leaders. The main focus was on participants, area, communication and equipment. We played various games involving different equipment and looked at ways to choose teams to include everyone. Finally, we selected cards and worked in groups to teach the game to rest of the class.
