Aye Aye island

Get set for a thrilling journey to the South Seas and Aye Aye island. Oak class are ready to perform the end of term show. Here's a synopsis to get you in the mood...

What a clot! Lord Archibald Ffolliot-Fluffit just wants to study the fruit of the world. When the Co-op can no  longer meet his needs he decides he must set sail to foreign shores. It’s a shame he’s not too careful who he travels with. There are pirates in these parts! Will his friend Jack be able to rescue him with the help of the ambitious Horace Brewster?

Horace Brewster longs to be a captain in the Royal Navy, but he has an embarrassment in his family. His brother Herbert is a horrible pirate captain; obsessed with keel-hauling and keeping up to date with modern piratical         practices.  Just maybe there is money to made out of the odd-looking stowaway on Herbert’s ship.

When Horace learns of a pirate conference on Aye Aye     island he sees the chance to lead his rag-tag crew of         reluctant sailors to win glory by ridding the seas of all       pirates. Will Archie be caught up in the fight? Will his friend Jack be able to save him? Will Herbert ever manage to    pronounce Ffoliot-Fluffit?


Finished cam toys

We have now finished our DT project. We made cam toys that required amazingly accurate measuring and cutting skills. We have had to learn from mistakes and solve problems as we go in order to make them work.

Delicious food!

The Farm Kitchen visited today. We all took turns to help make a delicious chicken curry. Most of us have gone home determined to make another one for tea this evening!

Outdoor Empire

We have had an extended outdoor learning time. We explored the British empire to see what was good and what was bad about it. We built shelters to suit the different countries and explored what resources came from the various parts of the empire. What a day!

Design and Technology

We are well on our way with making toys that require cam shafts. We are measuring VERY carefully so that all the component parts fit together perfectly.

Sharing assembly

We invited parents in to school today to share some of our most recent work. We covered outdoor learning, history, RE, science, values, art and more. We even made the parents learn some sign language.

Transition project

We worked with some 6th formers from QEGS on a geography project. They showed us what geography looks like in secondary school and we learnt lots about fair trade and the clothing industry. The QEGS students were brilliant and it was nice to see some old faces who were at Kirkby many years ago!
