NATIONAL LANDMARK DAY
On 4th February 2011, we had one of our very special days.
Each teacher had prepared activites about a famous landmark in this country. Pupils spent time in each classroom so they had the opportunity to find out more about these fascinating features on our landscape. Pupils researched, explored science and technology and created art work. Scroll down this page and click on the images to see larger versions.
We held a competition asking pupils to draw a picture and research key information about a landmark. There were dozens of brilliant entries but these are the winning ones:
1. Blackpool Tower
Our Foundation Stage pupils worked in their area to produce models of Blackpool Tower using a range of construction kits and scrap materials.
2. The Angel of the North
Mr Cameron's giant model of The Angel of the North has been made from cardboard. During their sessions, pupils made smaller models of the Angel and created Andy Warhol-type images to add to the larger model.
3. The London Eye
Mr Burton's class used Mary Tempest's picture of the London Eye as the basis for their own versions of the famous new landmark.
4. Buckingham Palace
Miss Baitson's activities focused on researching facts about the Palace.
5. The Humber Bridge
Mrs Phelps-Jones activities had pupils exploring the science and technology of the Bridge. They made 'human' suspension bridges to understand how they work.
6. Big Ben
Miss Northen had pupils making models of Big Ben and practising telling the time!
Mrs Wilde and Mrs Brocklebank allowed pupils to make models of Stonehenge from a variety of different materials, as well as learning important facts about the landmark.
