Elm Class loved participating in Robot Day this year! We had great fun building robots out of Lego all morning and then making our own robots from our junk modelling equipment in the afternoon! We had to make sure our robots had a moving part and lots of us did this using split pins, it was great to try something new and we were all really proud of our work!
Key Stage 1 visit Reverend Pauline
The children had a fantastic time as they visited Reverend Pauline in our wonderful church. She told us all about the Bible and showed us several different examples of bibles.
Adrian Warrell visit
Year 1 loved their visit from Adrian Warrell today to talk to us about old technology and new technology. We learnt about how people used to call people, how people used to send a text (a letter), how people used to play games, watch videos, listen to music, take photographs and find out information. We couldn’t believe how much our phones do and how much you used to have to use to do all these jobs! We even got to try some of the old technology out!
Goodbye Elm Class!
