The children’s brief for their DT project was to ‘design and make a wheeled vehicle using electrical components’.
Using their creative spirits, 5W worked with great enthusiasm during this unit, overcoming challenges and developing their ability to measure, cut and join materials and construct an electrical circuit in a meaningful context.
Once finished, the children tested their vehicles and evaluated their work. Initially, they were all given the same materials and advice but I’m sure you’ll agree, their finished products are all unique.
Thank you to Miss Oddy for supporting 5W to complete this exciting project.
On Friday, 28 year 1 parents attended a Reading Workshop, where we talked about ways to help children develop as readers. The parents (and younger siblings) then had the opportunity to visit their child’s class and enjoy reading books together.
On Friday morning the nursery parents stayed for a while to read with their children. They also listened to some advice on ways to help develop their children’s early reading skills; collected their new Nursery book bags and a free book. Thank you to all who attended. Have fun sharing books together!
On Thursday a great group of Reception parents attended our Reading Workshop.

At the summer fair in July I bought a small beetroot plant that the Year 1 children had grown from a small seed during their topic, Let’s be Farmers. This morning I harvested it… a beautiful beetroot came out of the soil that I am going to roast tomorrow, and beetroot leaves for a salad. Thanks children, now in Year 2!
