English – Macbeth


Last term, Willow class studied Macbeth and as a follow-up we were very lucky to have a Shakespeare drama company in to help us perform Macbeth in a day! The pupils rose to the challenge and we loved all the games we learnt, they are often part of our daily routine now.


Geography – Volcanoes

We learnt about volcanoes around the world, made volcanoes explode

and had an amazing visit from a Volcanologist


History – Pompeii

We investigated the huge Mount Vesuvius eruption and wrote diary entries just like Pliny did all those years ago.


Art – Landscapes

We used our surroundings to draw landscapes using perspective and the pupils produced volcanic landscapes in different media.DSCF8997


This was extended with a homework project to draw a landscape in a chosen medium.




Science/Technology – Circuits

Look at our hand-loop games! We worked extremely hard researching, designing and making our final products.







Easter Competition

During the last week before the Easter holidays we had a fun-packed afternoon making Egg Creations! The children designed their egg at home, made their final masterpiece in school and these were then judged by all teachers, it was a really tricky decision!
