Have a look at some things we’ve been doing in school recently!

Marathon Kids

We’ve had a great time over the last few weeks as we inch towards the halfway point of running a full marathon. Now we are running over a kilometre and barely feeling in. Quite a change from the struggle we had at running 650metres only a few weeks ago!

 

Maths Week

We had a terrific Maths Week 2020. Between online workshops over Zoom, where we learned how to use Maths to read your mind, a mysterious Maths trail on the Astro outside, using IZAK9 Cubes to solve problems and playing loads of games on Manga High it was full on, but great fun. Well done to everyone involved and to everyone who helped out!

Forced Perspective Art

We are in the middle of learning about Single Point Perspective at the moment, and about the creator of this art technique, Italian Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi. The paintings the children are worthy of a gallery in itself and I can’t wait to share them when they are finished. As a warm-up activity the children traced their own hands and shoes (even the tiny patterns on the soles of their sneakers) onto some pages and drew smaller self-portraits in the background to force the perspectives. The results are brilliant! Well done Fifth Class.
