8T have been working very hard this term on their topic ‘Christmas hats textiles’. We have been learning about the textures, colours and different kinds of hats. We made our very own pom-poms, a draft of our Christmas hat made from card and materials, all working up to our main goal of making their very own Christmas hat! Students worked hard using their decision making, cutting and design skills to plan and create their own Christmas hats which all turned out unique and amazing!

In science, we have been learning about our solar system. We have been looking at our planet and the sun. Today, we looked at the moon.
We made moon sand and explored the textures and the smells of the mixture…
We then looked at the planets of our solar system and took inspiration from the gas giant planets.
We made our own solar system from our efforts…
Until next time.
For No Pens Day 11s chose to create a Makaton Performance of the song played at the end of the Beowulf film called ‘ A Hero Comes Home’. We have been studying this text this term and they have completed some amazing English work through it. They have all done a fantastic job! Take a look using the link below!
To take part in No Pens Day pupils in 11s brought in items that were special to them to share and talk about with the rest of their form class. Some pupils brought in photographs whilst others brought in faviourite toys/ bears and medals that they’d won and were proud of. Pupils did a great job of sharing why they had chosen a particular item and were able to ask and answer questions about the items we had in class!
