Monday 5th November 2018 – Friday 9th November 2018


This week Arctic 5 have completed their clay planets by painting them with metallic paints to give them an iridescent appearance. As you can see this has proved very effective and every planet is unique – fantastic work, Arctic 5! This area of art started with pencil planet sketches, followed by pen sketches and finally charcoal sketches in preparation for the class’s own planet designs, which were then created using clay.


Also, Arctic 5 have been using the ergos to research Viking longboats/ships in preparation for a one off piece of creative homework, which is being set this week. We are looking forward to the outcome of this set task!

Arctic 5 have been pre-learning during their `Walk and Talk` session, ready for Space Day. They were finding out from their learning partner if they knew who the first person was to land on the moon and discussing what they hoped to learn this week during Science.






Monday 24th September – Friday 28th September 2018


During PSHE Arctic 5 discussed why rules are needed and why punishments may be needed in and out of school. Mrs Cole gave each table a die and left it up to the table to decide what to do. After five minutes the class came together and discussed what helped – working as a team and following rules to make up and play a game. The school motto ASPIRE came up during this lesson.






Monday 17th September – Friday 21st September 2018
