Rubber band cars!
Year Two worked really hard to design and build rubber band cars, which were based on inventions from the inventors they had been learning about throughout the Autumn Term. The video below shows the process.
In the Autumn Term of 2021 Year Three curated an exhibition in Egham Museum and on Friday 3rd December, the class were able to set up their learning in preparation for it being open to the general public. The children worked with Amy Stone, the assistant Museum Curator, who supported them through their journey to become mini exhibition curators themselves.
Year Four took all of the advice given from Mike from ‘Portals to the Past’ to create their own History workshop, based on the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. The children then ran their own workshop for parents, governors, members from the local community and other children at St Cuthbert’s school.
Magna Carta Jurors' Chairs
Year 5 have been learning about King John and the signing of Magna Carta. They learned how Magna Carta links to modern democracy. Using our DT skills we made chairs which represented significant people and moments linked to the concept of democracy. We took these chairs to Runnymede where Jess Kellard, the National Trust's community liaison officer, took the children on a tour of the Jurors' chairs, Writ in Water and the JFK memorial. We put together a short film about the experience.
Year Six, have been learning about national emergencies, we have been focusing on the current Coronavirus pandemic and World War Two. We have been making comparisons between the two and ultimately looking to answer our enquiry question: How do national emergencies bring communities together? We have collected everything we have found out and created an e-book to showcase our learning.
