  • Our new DT topic

    Published 26/02/20, by Robbie Steedman

    Today we discovered how wheels are attached to vehicles. 

    We explored lots of different wheeled items and discovered that there was an axle and an axle holder that allowed the wheels to spin.

    We used card, straws and masking tape to create our own models. This was the first step on the road to creating our own ambulances!!

    We loved working together. Team work makes the dream work!!

    On Wednesday, Year 1 went out and learnt how to light a fire.

    Welcome to all the parents of Elm class, to our first school blog of the new school year. The children have done remarkably well settling in to their new environment and new routines.

    Oh my goodness! We came into school today to find that a pirate had left his locked treasure chest in our class. We had to follow the clues by working out the riddles which finally led us to the key.
