We looked at push, pull and twist as regards to forces . We also had to work out how to move a counter without actually touching it.


We had a great time during our first visit to Kentmere Academy. As well as sharing lunch and playtime together, we worked really well together talking about the similarities and differences between us.


In groups, we thought about key moments in our lives so far. These are the results:

Human Circuits!

A circuit is a complete path of electrical energy. We carried out a human circuit during science. We looked at breaking the circuit and thought about conductors and insulators.


Thankyou for sending in old phone cases. This has given us the start we need in our DT lesson. We are carrying out market research within the class

to assess strengths and weaknesses in the model cases.  This has allowed us to choose our tables' favourite case, and explain why it is our favourite.


                                LONG MULTIPLICATION

In pairs, we created our own raps! The theme was #bekind.
