Year Six investigate ice

November 12, 2017
The new theme was "Frozen Kingdom".  Year Six had a mighty iceberg and a challenge:  Ask your own questions, find your own answers.  What does it weigh?  Is it floating?  Why does the water feel colder?  Can I make an enormous SPLAAAASH?  This is exactly what Ernest Hemingway had in mind when he wrote about dignity!

Shoeboxes ready to go.

November 7, 2017
Last term's assembly theme was Generosity.  Between the Harvest Festival donations to Middlesbrough Food Bank and the kindness shown by packing all that love into the shoeboxes, Viewley Hill children and families have shown great Generosity indeed.  Thank you all.

Who’s the Mummy?

November 7, 2017
Who's the mummy? Can you recognise any of our Year 5s? To kick off their new theme of Pharaohs, Year 5 gave the mummification process a go ... although everybody did go home with all of their organs unlike the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.

Year Five go old-school with their comms

November 7, 2017
How did people communicate before the telephone and internet? Can you even imagine such a world? Year 5 learned about Semaphore, which is a system that used flags to represent letters, and even had a go at it themselves.   Can you read their messages?

Y1/2 Enchanted Woodland

November 7, 2017
As part of their learning on 'Enchanted Woodland', Y1/2 studied the work of sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials in his work. They used his piece Fall Leaves as inspiration for their work, collected leaves and sorted them into similar hues before arranging them.
To celebrate the end of their theme, as the 'Express' activity, Y1/2 shared Their learning at 'Mr Fox's Woodland Party'. They produced invitations using computing, decorated biscuits, made their own woodland masks and proudly talked through their learning with their families.

Diwali at Viewley Hill

October 19, 2017
It was Diwali.  Children in Reception had learned about Diva Lamps, about Mehndi Designs and Rangoli Patterns.   They had learnt the story of Rama and Sita, and they had learnt about samosas, pakoras and fancy clothes. The time had come to - light them - draw them - colour them - watch it - eat them - wear them - all in that order!

Y6 Cross the Maths River

October 18, 2017
Year 6 were trying to cross the river - but you can only make it over safely if you know your times table facts.  AND there's a timer.  AND there are crocodiles.

October 6, 2017
Year five were feeling mathsy.  Ordering negative numbers - maths!  Finding multiples using skittles - maths!  investigating cube numbers with cubes - maths!  Peppermint creams - hang on... :-)
