"Mrs Hall didn't help us to make our toys, she gave us guidance. This was really good for me, because I haven't sawed before. Mrs Hall showed me how to do it safely and then I did it myself. I could do it again now because I know how to." - Reece

Space homework projects

Over the second summer half term, our homework challenge was to earn 20 points by completing a variety of tasks. We had the opportunity to create our own tasks too. Some of us went to visit museums in Liverpool to gather facts, some made Top Trumps cards, some of us wrote fact files on famous space travelers, a few of us wrote our own mnemonic poems and some of us sat up each night to observe and record how the moon appears to change shape. 

 

"These sorts of tasks are really important because you get to be creative and do things for yourself." - Christeena

 

"This homework is important because you get to understand new knowledge in a fun way." - Alfie

 

"This type of homework is important because you get to express yourself and develop your learning skills, ready for when you  go to high school." - Lily

Fashion through the ages

We appraised other artist's work
We had a go on our own with watercolour
We mixed colours our own way.
We started to create mood boards

Although we have worked collaboratively to research, we have pulled apart to work on our own to create our own designs. Through this process we have explored colour, shape and existing products and have come up with a design unique to us!

 

"I always enjoy to work on my own because it helps me to develop my own ideas and I know that when I do things it is all my own work and I can be proud of myself. Working on your own makes you feel capable and positive about yourself. I always put in more effort too because I want to do my best." - Paavan.

Greek Mosaics

We used real tile cutters, adhesive and grout to make our mosaics. "It was fun!". 

Potty about planting!

We needed to choose the correct equipment for planting herbs, digging holes for our trees and turning over the soil. Each job required different tools. 

The BIG questions

We created BIG questions in Religious Education that we are going to follow up, research and answer by our self.

What questions do you have about Christianity?
