Once you Pop you can't stop... (26th May)

Our exploration of the Pop art movement has produced some interesting results!

Take a letter... (26th May)

With our Heroes project complete it was time to pen a letter or two to a selection of interested parties who can expect to share our work in the coming weeks...

Art Attack (23rd May)   The Gallery and the Pokemon Gallery have been updated.

"There is nothing wrong with your television..." (22nd May)

Lycopersicon esculentum... Lobelia pendula cascade... Tagetes patula nana... Fragaria vesca regina... Lavvandula angustifolia... 

What on Earth are we talking about? Well, while these words may look like a cross between a wizard's spell and a bad hand in Scrabble, in reality they are merely the Latin names of some of the the seeds we were sowing this afternoon! In an entirely related move we also took the opportunity to focus our Bible work on the parable of The Sower.

In other news, we received two postcards from the wonderful Mrs Stevens who is half a world away in America! 

Art Attack (22nd May)   The Gallery has been updated.

Think of a Number... (19th May)

There was more than a hint of competition today as we battled to answer Numeracy questions and achieve a place on the coveted Leader Board.

And so...

After a hard-fought contest, well done to Olivia, Drew, Finlay, Phoebe, Kye, Alex, Maisy, Lola, Lucy and - overall winner - Eva. Congratulations must also go to Sarah too - the only person to achieve 100% accuracy across all tasks! 

Don't forget that you can log in to your Sumdog account at any time (you can find the link on this page). 


 Have a great weekend! 


Bible Studies (18th May)

How many books make up the Bible? Why is it an important text worldwide? Just what are parables? These questions - and more - can be answered by the Discoverers!                                                                                                         Exclusive art by Rocco and Lucy

You won't need your musical instruments tomorrow as Mr Firth will not be in school.

Where in the world...? (4th May)

East Barnby = creativity... as these rather splendid letters and Lola's excellent Beck Scrambling picture prove!

East Barnby - Day Three (26th April)

Climbing and cycling brought our challenging visit to East Barnby to an exciting conclusion! As ever, our thanks must go to all of the staff at East Barnby for being so welcoming.

East Barnby - Day Two (25th April)

Rock pooling, hail, hot chocolate, camp fires, howling gales, sea creatures, Falling Foss, rain, fossils and snow should give you a flavour of today's hectic activity!

East Barnby - Day One (24th April)

Back to school... and straight out to East Barnby! This afternoon's objective: to get as soaked as possible! Many of us achieved this Beck Scrambling goal with great skill, thanks to a good deal of clambering, sliding and - as a sure way to attain success - by falling in!

Newsround (21st April)

The current edition of the Whitby Gazette features some alarmingly familiar faces...
