Bridge Building

Posted: 31 December 2019

Burrator Class investigated bridges and learnt about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a famous Victorian engineer as part of their design technology work. Pupils considered the most effective structures and worked as a team to plan and create their own bridges, which they then evaluated.

Burrator's Victorian Day

Posted: 31 December 2019

To experience what it was like being a Victorian school child, Burrator Class pupils dressed and behaved in the same way as Victorian school children. The day was filled with activities that Victorian children would have carried out, including practising handwriting and learning times tables.

 

 

Handbells

Posted: 31 December 2019

A local handbell group came into school to work with Burrator Class. They performed some traditional Christmas carols and allowed the pupils to play the handbells. The carols performed included Jingle Bells and Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. This was a very inspiring opportunity for many of the pupils and it is hoped that the school may also be able to develop its own handbell group as so many of the children were enthusiastic to continue to practice their new skills.
