Air Raid Shelters


P3/4/5 have been learning all about WW2. The class have explored Air Raid Shelters. The pupils were given the challenge of designing and building their own air raid shelter. Each shelter had to fit a Lego person, be watertight and be able to hold a weight. Have a look at these pictures to see how the pupils got on with this challenge.




P3/4/5 are learning about WW2 in topic work. We have already learnt lots about evacuation, air raids and the blitz. This is a great topic and the pupils have really enjoyed taking part in lots of art activities around this topic. P3/4/5 look forward to learning more about WW2.


P5 Maths


P5 have been focusing on learning their times tables. We have been doing some practical activities to help to learn and reinforce our times tables. Each P5 pupil has a times tables booklet which they are to learn each night. It is really important that these are learnt well at home for daily mental maths tests. The P5s have made a great start to learning their times tables. Keep it up!
