Year 3 London Trip
Y3 went on an adventure. To enhance their curriculum, we travelled by coach and underground train to London. Leaving early, we managed to pack in a trip to see the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, a walk along the River Thames, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Cathedral, the (huge!) horses at Horseguards, The Shard, Buckingham Palace, the Cenotaph, Downing Street, Trafalgar Square as well as a visit to The National Gallery. An amazing experience.

History time line
Brandon’s Murals has visited the school again. This time to create a wonderful piece of artwork on the wall just outside the school hall. The mural goes from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 1. The children loved watching Brandon paint these mini pictures of history on a time line, from the Stone Age to the preset day.

Year 6 Artwork
Learning Something New – As part of our 5 Ways to Wellbeing the children are focusing on ‘Learning Something New’. Mr Harden has shared his artistic flare for drawing and sketching with the children. Below are some of the great pieces of artwork that was based on Mr Hardens example or on their own ideas.
Wishing everyone a lovely summer
This week, Bubble 7 thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of Science Week. On Tuesday, they learned all about the density and polarity of liquids when they created a lava lamp. On Wednesday, the children became explorers of our natural world and went on a minibeast hunt. We found an ant nest, many earwigs and even a newt! The next day, they had fun creating flick books and investigated the impact of optical perception. Some of the children were able to animate a drawing of an alien abduction! To round off the week, they made a volcano out of Modroc, then created a chemical reaction, using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to cause an ‘eruption’. The children can’t wait for the next Science Week!
The myth of the Firebird
This week, Bubble 7 learned about the myth of The Firebird. We listened to the music for The Firebird ballet by Stravinsky (1910), and watched Disney’s own interpretation on Fantasia 2000. We really enjoyed the way the bird was painted with a mixture of yellow, orange and red. We hope you like our own paintings of a Firebird! Can you spot what extra colour we have used?
