5W are Designers

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.

Reading Workshop for Reception Parents

On Thursday a great group of Reception parents attended our Reading Workshop. They listened to some advice on ways to help develop their children’s reading skills; collected a free book; met other parents over a cup of tea and, above all, enjoyed the opportunity to go into class and read with their children .
