Our Topic this term is
'Beast Creator'

A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He'll tickle your skin and then go in for the sting!

Arachnids, invertebrates, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks... Come search for these minibeasts, and let's sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it?

Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery - then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go!

Discover where in the world you'll find the deadliest beasts - scorpions, ants and venomous spiders... perhaps the Vespa mandarinia japonics is the one that you fear?

Why not become a 'Beast Creator'? Selectively breed a killer predator that saves the world from the super-strong aphid.

You'll be a hero!

But I know an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don't know why she swallowed a fly... perhaps she'll die?'

3D Printer:

The children of Hockney class were in for a shock when they found a 3D printer in the classroom on Tuesday.

The children got to explore the 3D printer making a small robot and also a turbine.

It was fascinating to watch! A big thank you to George and his Dad for bringing in the printer, we will look to do some project work on it over the coming terms!
