Team Discovery had a wonderful time learning how to sew this afternoon. As you can see, they enjoyed it 'sew' much that we wanted to share it with you all. Here's what the children said:
'I have really enjoyed sewing this afternoon.' Nia.
'I liked sewing because I have never done it before and when I'm older, I will know how to sew blankets!' Esme.
'I have really enjoyed sewing. One day I could become a fashion designer!" Casey.
'II learned how to thread a needle and do a running stitch.' Rory.
'It's a good opportunity to learn a useful new skill.' Ed.
'I've really enjoyed learning a new skill.' Freddie.
'I really enjoyed it because I don't normally prepare food at home.' Leah.
'I enjoyed this because now I know how to make a sandwich!' Esme and Freddie.
'I loved making the box to take it home in!' Rory.
'It makes me want to help homeless people who are hungry.' Casey.
'It's unfair that not everyone gets enough food like Mr Stink and other homeless people.' Ned.
Team Discovery have been baking something tasty today to help them understand how to write their own instructions next week. We asked them for their feedback after the lesson. Here is what they said:
'It might give us the opportunity to be a baker one day or help more in the kitchen at home.' Casey.
'It was interesting learning how to make the tray bake. The experience will help us learn more about instructions too.' Freddie.
'It's always fun learning how to bake so you can do it at home with your family.' Rory.
Team Discovery have been learning the names and functions of our teeth. We asked them for their feedback after the lesson. Here is what they said:
'I like learning about the Human body because it is interesting.' Edward.
'I think this is important because it could give us the opportunity to become a dentist one day!' Casey.
'I didn't know our teeth had different names.' Marcy.
'I used to wonder how they work and what they are for. Now I know.' Freya.
'This will be useful so I know how to look after them correctly.' Leo.
The children in Team Courage and Team Discovery have thoroughly enjoyed reading and exploring the features of comics this week. Inspired by classic copies of the Beano and Dandy, they have developed their own dialogue which they will be using in our English lessons for the rest of this half term.

This term's Lower School topic at has been rounded off in spectacular fashion this week with our climate change exhibition which opened on Wednesday 16th February. Superb pieces of art, interactive displays, music, poetry, special guests, a letter from the Prime Minister and an amazing interview broadcast on the Radio Derby breakfast show all combined to create another truly memorable event led by our fantastic pupils.
Our exhibition will be open to parents before and after school on Thursday and Friday (17th and 18th February). Don't miss it!
