From fossils to clay sculptures, it has been another busy week at Isaac Newton Primary School!
 
Children in EYFS ventured out of the classroom as they went on a bear hunt! Watch this space for pictures coming soon..
Year 1 have also taken their learning outdoors this week, practicing how to read maps in a very muddy Forest School. They then produced their own directions using natural resources such as sticks and leaves. 
 
You could be forgiven for thinking that some creatures made it back into the Year 1 corridor...these are in fact clay sculptures made by the children. Can you spot the hedgehogs, snails and flowers?
Year 2 have continued their focus on Hansel and Gretel, looking at ways of describing the witch. They also explored the gingerbread house that she lived in!
Up in Key Stage 2, Year 3 have been looking at Stone Age houses, particularly those in the Orkney village of Skara Brae that are over 5,000 years old!
 
Would you visit a place preserved within a sand dune until 1850? Take a look at Year 3's pamphlets that explain why this is the perfect holiday destination!
Friday morning was another busy period of sporting action with a team of Year 5 and 6 pupils attending a Sportshall Athletics competition. Only last Thursday, we qualified for the County Finals of seated volleyball!
 
Year 4 had an action-packed PE lesson, taking part in benchball, New Age Kurling and completing their Mile a Day run.
Year 5 continued to look at fossils, experiencing excavations and creating a giant jar of jelly that showcases the different layers of fossils!
Meanwhile, Year 6 created some amazing fossil booklets...take a look at this fantastic example below!
