Residential Trip to South Downs Adventure Centre
The children enjoyed creating catapults and kites on the Downs, a visit to Lewes Castle, a day at the beach and constructing and floating coracles.
Constructing a coracle
"Awesome Egyptians" is the focus of the Year 6 studies. They learnt about the mummification process during Egyptian times; they weer particularly disgusted with the process of removing the brain which involved sticking an iron hook up the nostril of the dead body, whisking the brain vigorously until it was scrambled and then rolling the body over so the liquified brain could drain out through the nose. Revolting!
Year 6 reaction!
Spring Term 2018
"Polar Adventure" was our topic during this term; the children conducted a range of “Frozen Oceans” investigations as part of an introduction to their topic. They made Arctic food webs, trained like explorers – including taking part in sleeping bag relays to see if they would be quick enough to avoid frostbite! – and thought about the best insulating material for cold climates recreating blubber using butter and bubble wrap.

Year 6 studied World War II. They produced some really creative World War II gardens.
The visit to the Bluebell Railway helped the children experience what it was like to be evacuated.

Who will take care of us?
First of all the children learnt how to check that their bicycle and cycle helmetwere roadworthy. Then they were out in the local vicinity learning how to ride safely as part of the traffic.
