Year 7 Dragons’ Den

June 13th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Year 7 English. Mrs Diffey’s class are honing their presentation skills in a Dragons’ Den style scheme of work. They have invented innovative products, undertaken market research, written a slogan and created a 30 second TV advert for their product. Pictures show them filming their adverts. They will be presenting their products to ferocious Dragons Mr Scott, Glenda and MRs Buxton. Products have included ‘make shift mum and dad’ a machine that picks up clothes from the bedroom floor, folds them and scents  them (thank you Jacob, Finnan, Ben and Eddie for this idea!). The boys can be seen creating the device out of a Hoover, two brooms and a lot of gaffa tape. Other products include a floor length umbrella (a warm and dry Pheobe and Lila), a see through toaster (no burnt toast ever again Zak and Jack), suitcase dividers (organised Ella,Jasmina and Rosy), automatic cleaning equipment (spic and span Rosalyn and Kelly) and soap in a bag (super clean Georgie and Martha). Amazing creative ideas everyone but who will the Dragons invest in?

In January, Year 4 took part in a competition with National Geographic Kids. They had been told about the competition by Year 4 pupil Eva.

The children wrote about how they had prepared for and participated in the Big Garden Bird Watch 2019.

Last week they had the very lovely news telling the children that they had won the prize from National Geographic Kids!

The prize was an ultra hi-res wireless nestbox camera system with nest box, five RSPB Children’s binoculars, an RSPB What’s that Bird book and two bumper bird food gift box with feeders.

Well done Eva and Year 4!

Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 had an amazing time at the Eden Project yesterday. The morning was spent learning about seeds during a fantastic workshop where we explored lots of different seeds, dissected a seed, learned about the things that seeds need and how they grow, planted flowers to take back to school, pretended to be mini-beasts and played a growing game. After a picnic lunch we spent the afternoon enjoying the tropical biome. What a lovely sunny day out!

Camp Kernow!

Years 5 and 6 are currently spending 3 days at Camp Kernow which is an off-grid environmental adventure centre near Truro. It harnesses renewable energy and employs sustainable technologies, including composting toilets, reed-beds, solar powered water and biomass-fuelled showers. The camp brings green education to life, enabling children to understand and experience a new way of living in balance with nature.
 
During their stay, Years 5 and 6 are taking part in a packed programme of exciting, challenging and unforgettable experiences including wild food foraging, technical tree climbing and bat detecting!
 
They have had a brilliant time so far!
