The Rainbow Fish.

Year 6 Art.

This art lesson was inspired by the portraits of the American artist, Chuck Close. It was a group art project for year 6 pupils which ends with the surprising ‘reveal’ of a large scale portrait.

Year 2 Trip!

Safety Seymour!

Today, year 2 children were visited by Safety Seymour. Through fun activities and drama the children learnt ‘What is Carbon Monoxide?’ . They now know how to look for signs in the home, follow top tips on how to protect themselves and what to do if they detect carbon monoxide in the home.
Each week children will have the opportunity to take Safety Seymour home and educate their families on carbon monoxide.
We look forward to reading about the exciting activities Seymour has got up to whilst staying with the children and their families!
