Design and Technology Day

The children have worked hard today. They created their own Dojo Monsters Characters.  They linked their learning to their knowledge of shapes and pattern, which we have been learning about in Maths. We focused on fine motor skills such as; using glue correctly, holding scissors, drawing around a template and cutting it out, and they even included a simple join using a split pin, making their Dojo’s have a waving arm or moving leg. They filled in a design sheet and then used their designs to create the monsters. Well done reception!!!

Design and Technology Dojo Style!

Today we had our first Design and Technology day. We created our own Dojo Monster Character linking to our knowledge of shapes that we have been learning about in Maths. We focused on skills such as using glue properly, holding scissors, drawing around a template and cutting it out and even included a simple join using a split pin, making our Dojo’s have a waving arm. We used a design sheet and then used the design to create the monsters. Check us out hard at work!

Year 5 Peake – Fantastic Trips

In the first half term (and part of the previous summer term), Year 5 Peake have been on some magnificent trips to learn more about their skills topic and their science unit. Their behaviour on the trips has been excellent and they have been eager to learn.

Last July, we went on a walking tour up the Bridgewater Canal around Worsley. We visited many features along the canal and the children asked some great questions about how it was built and what it was used for. Emmanuel even guessed who was photographed on the famous bridge… Queen Elizabeth 2nd!

Next, we visited Ellesmere Port. This is where the Bridgewater Canal eventually meets the sea. We learnt all about what it was like to work on the canal and we even got a chance to open the locks and ride on a barge. What a fun trip, even if it was very wet!

Finally, we visited Eureka. What an amazing time we had there. We got lots of time to play and learn about the world. We also went to a really interesting workshop about Earth and Space, which helped us with our science. We saw a brilliant experiment that showed how a rocket takes off. Mr Sutherland caught it on the slo-mo camera!

Brilliant times in 5 Peake.

Happy 5th Birthday Mike!

On Friday it was Mike the Bear’s 5th Birthday party! We had a brilliant time and we were allowed to bring our own bears to school to join the fun. Thank you to Luciana for the lovely birthday card, and to Mia and Willow’s Mum for bringing us some little extras to eat! The children really enjoyed themselves. We ate the sandwiches we made, played games, made pattern party hats and opened Mike’s presents. We made a list of the presents he received using our sound-talk. We sang Happy Birthday and helped him to blow out his candles on his birthday cake. Mike then went to Benny’s for a special McDonald’s tea! What a fabulous day!
