    Virtual reality awe!
    2nd February 2018

    What an inspiring way to start February and reflect on our World War II topic! Year 6 visited the amazing Virtual Reality suite at Space Studio Banbury to experience what it would have felt like to live in London during the Blitz. The VR put them in a house in the city during World War II with Winston Churchill’s infamous address of the nation playing over the wireless. Then came the air raid siren and pupils had to board up the windows of the house to protect themselves from the ‘Blitz’ bombing. The children reflected on their learning over the term and how it would have felt to live at that time. Read more

    As part of our vets and pets topic, the Reception children visited Pets at Home. While we were there we got to meet some of the animals, and some brave children even held some worms and crickets! As we walked around we discussed the different things pets need and also had a look at finding the prices of things. We then used our maths skills to compare which items were expensive and which were cheaper. We were also lucky enough to get a tour of the veterinary surgery too. Finally we chose some items to buy for Patch our class guinea-pig, before setting off back to school on the minibus. Read more
