4GG’s Drakes Broughton adventure!

4GG have been planning a route around the village using Google Map, Google Earth and street view. We really enjoyed locating our own houses and discuss how they have changed over the years since the photo was taken.

A visit from an Olympic gymnast

On Monday we had a visit from Olympic gymnast Kristian Thomas. We all completed 7 minutes of exercise and enjoyed watching a sequence of gymnastic skills performed by Kristian.


 




Sound Walk

During music this week we enjoyed a sound walk around school. We listened carefully and recorded what we heard by drawing and writing.

Where in the world is this?

In Geography lessons, Year 4 have been identifying peninsulas that are larger than Florida. They had to locate them on a world map, name the continent it is on and find out what countries it covered. It was very challenging!

The Environment in English and DT

Year 3 are looking at the environment this week in English and DT. We will be watching the Blue Planet live lesson today and then designing our own plastic sculptures made from recycled plastic.
If parents could send in any recycled plastic (clean) we can then make our sculptures next week!

In English we have just got to the part in Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach where they are surrounded by sharks. We will be writing discussion texts on whether we should save our sharks or hunt them. I am sure the children will have lots to say on the subject.

Crazy Golf Project

On Friday Year 7 came together to celebrate their completed DT project work. The challenge had been to design and construct a 3D model of an iconic building, which could be part of a crazy golf course. All buildings were tested to see if a golf ball could successfully be putted through the model's aperture.
A great afternoon was had by all!
