Year 2 Travel Back in Time, by Mrs Walsh

Date: 17th Mar 2022 @ 2:03pm

Year 2 visited Staircase House to consolidate their work on The Great Fire of London.

In the morning, they dressed up and re-enacted the Great Fire of London as Samuel Pepys household. They created their own biscuits to bake in the bakery on Pudding Lane, where the fire started.  After the fire started, they formed bucket chains to try to put out the fire.

In the afternoon they had a workshop on The Plague and found out all about 'The Plague Doctor' and what actually went into the 'Pocket Full of Posies' from the nursey rhyme ' Ring o, Ring o, Roses'

Finally, they finished the day by creating their own wattle and daub walls, just as the buildings in 1666 would have been created.

Phew, a very busy but brilliant day!

Year 3 Pizzeria!, by Mrs Walsh

Today, the year 3 classroom became a pizzeria!

The children designed, made and evaluated a delicious pizza in a style of their own.

Guilty or Not Guilty?, by Mrs Walsh

Date: 9th Mar 2022 @ 8:23am

Year 6 had the opportunity to participate in two ‘Street Law’ on-line workshops. The sessions were led by teams of lawyers who worked with the children so they could experience the world of law and order.

The first session was called ‘Goldilocks on Trial’ where we rejigged the layout of the classroom to reflect a criminal courtroom.  The children then played the part of Defence Counsel, Prosecution Counsel, Goldilocks (the Defendant), Mummy bear (a witness), PC Plod (a witness), Judge, Usher and Jury.  The trial outcome was a ‘hung’ jury which means there has to be a re-trial. 

The second workshop, entitled “Social Media and Your Dream Job” , encouraged the children to think carefully about what they post online if/when they start to use social media apps, in case it affects their chance of keeping their ‘dream’ job in the future (and is based on some general principles from employment and criminal law).  Lots of fascinating ‘real life’ lessons learnt and it definitely reinforced our esafety messages.


Year 6 Talk Online Safety with PSCO, by Mrs Walsh

Date: 8th Mar 2022 @ 5:08pm

Police Community Support Officer, Kerry Hancock and her colleague, paid a visit to Year 6 to discuss internet safety. 

The children were shocked to hear that from the age of 10 Years old a child is responsible for their behaviour, on-line and 10-year-old children have found themselves in youth court for committing offences on the internet.  (A youth court is a special type of magistrates’ court for people aged between 10 and 17 ) 

There were many questions, from the children, about age restrictions for different apps, fortunately Kerry was able to clear up any misconceptions!

Year 1 Learn About Algorithms, by Mrs Walsh

Date: 4th Mar 2022 @ 5:17pm

The Year 1 children worked brilliantly, with their learning partners, to carefully follow an algorithm.  This resulted in a perfectly and accurately 'painted' bird!  The children compared their work and carefully saved it to their area.  Well done Year 1!

What a team - despite the conditions!, by Mrs Walsh
