Designing, making and evaluating chocolate bars

posted 8 Feb 2019, 08:54 by Oliver Mills

This half term Year 6 have been getting to grips with one of the Aztec's most well-known creations: chocolate. Through a series of Design and Technology lessons, children have sampled different types of chocolate, designed an eye-catching brand with an end-user in mind and finally brought their creations to life.

The children demonstrated great creativity throughout the process and have created products which are worthy of gracing the shelves of any supermarket in the land!

Outdoor Learning - Butter Knife Carving

posted 1 Feb 2019, 08:11 by Oliver Mills

This afternoon, Mr France visited Year 6M and challenged the children to create their own butter knives by carving and whittling with hazel. After fortifying themselves with toasted marshmallows, children used loppers, sheath knives and sanding blocks to shape their implements - working admirably in the adverse weather conditions. We hope it warms up a bit for Mr Paterson's class next week!

As tribute to the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, Year 6 have created mosaics inspired by Mesoamerican artefacts. It is our hope that the great feathered serpent will be pleased by our offerings and grant us great knowledge.
