What amazing effort and determination shown by our year 5 pupils in their recent art topic! Children learnt different stitching and sewing techniques in order to complete a flower embroidery pattern. We think the finished products are fantastic! Well done year 5!
Great British Bake Off! Year 6 have put their culinary skills to the test by learning all about a balanced diet and seasonal foods in order to plan a delicious seasonal meal. Every child designed a meal and we then voted for our favourites. 6H decided to cook a ‘big breakfast’ including seasonal tomatoes, seasonal new jersey potatoes sliced, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, beans and eggs. What an amazing time all the children had cooking then sampling their delights. Watch out – we have amazing cooks in y6! Here are some photographs to show off their skills. Enjoy!
Every half term, 6H are set a challenge to reach a given destination with each of them earning reading miles weekly in order to be successful. This half term, the challenge was to reach 3630 miles in order to arrive at China. Together, the pupils in 6H read an equivalent of 6880 miles! WOW! They can now carry over 3250 miles towards their next challenge. As a reward, 6H will sample some chinese food for their success. Keep working hard 6H! You should be very proud of your joint success – we are! Watch this space to view our rewards!
All pupils at CHJS have taken part in this exciting competition held by the Royal Mail. They each had to draw a picture of the hero or heroes of the coronavirus pandemic that they would like to see on a stamp and they were asked to include plenty of colour to complete their design. If any of our pupils are successful, they will see their design actually made into a stamp. WOW! Watch this space to find out. Here are some of our amazing entries. Good luck everyone!
Y3 have started their Art topic focusing on Cultural Art. So far, they have linked this to their previous History learning on the Ancient Egyptians. They recreated some Egyptian art by making papyrus paper using brown paper and PVA glue. They then added their own pictures of Egyptian Gods to this. Take a look at this excellent work!
Year 4 took part in a range of food activities in DT including making pesto pasta, strawberry investigating, herb planting and strawberry smoothie making.
For their DT topic, Bread, Y3 looked at bread available to buy as some market research. They described the appearance, smell, texture and taste of the bread and were really enthusiastic about this learning.
They then designed their own bread, thinking about what they liked. We discussed food safety and hygiene as part of this topic when the children made their bread. We hope some of you got to taste their delicious bread at home!

Our days can be busy, fun and exciting. This is great! To keep our mind and body healthy, it is important to also make time to be still, calm and quiet. Time to relax can help us to feel happy. It was a lovely day so we went outside, got ourselves comfortable and simply looked up at the sky. We thought about what we could see, breathing slowly and gently. We looked carefully at the clouds and drew what shapes we could see. What shapes can you see?
