Anderson Shelters Homework
Stingrays have been very busy creating an impressive range of model Anderson shelters for their World War II topic homework. The design ideas from the children have been truly innovative and the quality of their construction has been outstanding. The children have really enjoyed sharing their constructions with each other and participating in testing their shelters for strength and water resistance.
Thank you so much for supporting us with this challenging project; it has really enriched the children's understanding of the importance of Anderson shelters during World War II.
Welcome to Stingray Class!

a copy of our autumn welcome letter outlining key class information for the start of the year; our Stingray class charter; our autumn curriculum map; and our first topic based homework project.
Please keep checking our page for more information about our learning as we will be updating it regularly.
World Book Day
The children looked amazing for World Book Day this year, their costumes were fantastic - well done parents!
We have been looking at the Human Body in science. We talked about where our organs are found and looked in detail about how the heart works. We have had fun turning ourselves into blood cells 'flowing' around the body.
Whilst some of the class were out doing their Bikeability, the rest of us completed 'The Egg Challenge'. Each team was given an egg to look after. They had to find a way of packaging the egg so that the packaging could withstand being dropped from a height.
Some of the teams produced amazing packaging, so much so, Mrs Ogle and Mrs McCall had to resort to throwing the eggs around the playground to find the ultimate winner!
