Over the course of this year, Sandpipers class will engage in a variety of different learning experiences through our topics.

Term 1- I am Warrior!

I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans versus the Celts, the fight is on…

Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us. Get ready for gladiator school and learn alongside Spartacus and Siculus: brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum. When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?


 Term 2- Bottoms, Burps and Bile

Open wide- let’s take a look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the bust world inside your body!

Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites! Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene- at both ends!


Term 3- Road Trip USA!

 Buckle up, sunglasses on- we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

 Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport, New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard to home asking the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’

Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then, plan a bespoke trip for Mr Smith and his family of four who want to spend three weeks in the sun. it’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair- we’re off!


 Term 4- Potions

 Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky good. Welcome to the amazing world of potions and their properties…

 Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there- dangerous and unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!) Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard’s potions class. Feeling sleepy? Hmmm… that orange juice did taste a little strange…


 Term 5- Traders and Raiders

 Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.

 Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lift of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia-never before had such terror swept the land.

 Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?


 Term 6- Blue Abyss

 Grab your wetsuit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.

 Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Travel by submarine to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures!

 Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss…

Ladies In School Day

A massive thank you to all of the ladies that came to join us with our learning today. It was fantastic to have you in with us and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. 

We had a great time creating pictograms in maths using masking table on our desks, identifying a success criteria for writing a persuasive letter, playing glockenspiels along with the popular Bill Wethers song, 'Lean on Me' and to top it all off we used Brusho to create fantastic bubbling potion bottles!

Photos to follow.
