Philippe Petit - A man on a wire!

This past week children in all year groups were inspired by the story of Philippe Petit, an extremely talented French aerialist who successfully walked across a wire a quarter of a mile up between the Twin Towers of New York in 1974. Children were asked to exercise their creativity by participating in a range of different activities in celebration of this remarkable individual and his incredible achievement.

Acitivities included green screen filming across a balance bar while using iPads to film and create the effects, and creating models in Art. Below are a few of the photographs taken during the week.

Year 5 learn about Thomas Becket

20160919 103603Year 5 children have been learning about Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, whose death in December 1170 remains one of the most famous stories associated with Medieval England. The learning was made so much more interesting by a visit to Canterbury Cathedral and playing along in a few re-enactments, while dressed in some amazing costumes associated with that period.

To share in the experience, why not visit this LINK to have a look at a few of the photographs taken of the children adorned in their colourful outfits.
