Operating Theatre Live - What is it?

Operating Theatre Live is a travelling school based medical programme built and delivered by the UK's  leading anatomist and teacher Samuel Piri. Sam and his team convert your school hall or gym into the worlds only portable operating theatre allowing students to get hands on with real anatomy in a clinical setting.

The children were all extremely brave and even though the smell in the hall was not the nicest, they all gave 100% effort and enjoyed the experience! Who knows, we could have some future Doctors/Surgeons in the making...? no










Biscuit Making!

The past few weeks in Maths, the children have been focusing on 'measurements'. On Wednesday 5th July, Mr Durrell's class and Mr Blakemore's class combined our knowledge and used our mathematical skills to make some yummy biscuits. Here are some pictures of the morning... Ready, steady... BAKE!




'Be Active Week' - Monday 10th - Friday 14th July 2017

On Tuesday 11th July, our class participated in a 25 minute gym session with Mrs Kelly Clarke and her colleague Jessica. The children had a circuit of activities to complete and it is safe to say they had lots of fun!
