Empty Classroom Day – Collaborative Street Art

On Friday the 17th June, St. Philip’s celebrated ‘Empty Classroom Day’ where each class held at least one lesson outdoors! Class 8 explored street art. Firstly they looked at examples of 3D street art from around the world for inspiration. Then they worked in groups to compose a creative design idea which they could produce on an outdoor surface and in which they would be part of. They worked together with chalk to produce scaled outlines and then added colour. Finally they inserted themselves into their art so that a photograph could be taken.

 

 

New Recruits!

During the Autumn term, Class 8 have been learning all about the Romans. We have looked at how the Roman Empire was established, what the Romans did for us, participated in a debate about who was the best Emperor and learnt about the Roman army. As part of our end of unit work, we decided to make a short video about the Roman army. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Would you like to be in the Roman army? You decide.

 

Bright Sparks!

During the last 6 weeks, Class 8 have been learning all about electricity. They have participated in an electricity day, learned about the importance of electricity and how dangerous it can be, designed and built electrical circuits and tested insulators and conductors.

To demonstrate all that they have learn, Class 8 were given the task of designing and making a torch to guide them out of the building during a power cut. The children really enjoyed the activity and were proud of their designs. Take a look.
