  • Design & Technology Projects

    Published 18/12/16

    Mr Bett from our Design department has been running DT projects with the Pre-preps this year.

    This terms project on inventors was about designing their own creature inventions and building little models on wheels.

    The pupils built frames, leaning to follow a drawing, measure and mark out materials, leaning to saw wood and make a working chassis for their projects.

    The children came up with some very imaginative ideas, many animals with strange shaped wings, legs and very scary heads!

    This project was part of our 6th Form Enrichment programme and we have been very grateful for the enthusiasm and support from a number of students from our college.

  • Year 1 Collaborative Work

    Published 18/12/16

    During the autumn and spring term Year 1 have been writing to their pen pals in Saffron Walden at Dame Bradbury's.

    We have been getting to know them and asking them lots of questions.

    This term we have linked our letters to our Geography work about places and journeys. We set our work around the story Town Mouse, Country Mouse. We realized that all three Pre-Preps are in a different type of location and invented our own characters called, Town Mouse (Dame Bs), Village Mouse (Madingley) and City Mouse (City Pre-Prep).

    We wrote facts about what it is like to go to school in a village and the city and then asked our pen pals questions for Town Mouse to answer.

    We enjoy sharing our learning with our friends at Dame B's!
