Visit to the canal

We were invited by the Canal & River Trust to design the banner to advertise this year's Crick Boat Show. David and Steve from the trust gave a safety talk before we left for the canal, highlighting the dangers of the canal and how to keep ourselves safe. We walked to the canal and strolled along the towpath looking at different elements of the canal to give us some ideas. We were then welcomed by The Moorings to use the restaurant as a base from which to sketch our designs. We thank the staff for hosting us (also for the coffee for our adults!).

Everyone was extremely well behaved and showed great maturity when walking along the towpath. The artwork produced was superb and has been sent off to the PR company who will produce the banner, which will be sited at school. So watch this space for more details...

The Legend of Beowulf!

We used drama to support our writing of our own versions of the Legend of Beowulf.

 

Properties and Materials

In science, we have been learning about materials and their properties. We carried out an investigation to test various materials to find out if they were magnetic, permeable or transparent and check their hardness and flexibility.
