The Big Draw

This year THE BIG DRAW had a STEAM theme.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.

Every class in school had an opportunity to work with our artist in residence Nick Garnett to create our school dragon in a workshop. The dragon currently resides under the tree opposite the school entrance. The dragons name is at this very moment being shortlisted and decided on from all the fantastic suggestions you have handed in. The school council will announce the decision soon!


The Lower Block did Maths and produced beautiful potato prints of math symbols, cogs and shapes and made patterns. They also made junk models and leaf dragons.


Middle Block did the Sciences. They made an H2O waterfall, printed cells, models of exploding atoms and a brain exploding with awe and wonder.


Upper Block did Technology and Engineering. They created giant primary coloured cog panels that linked together. They also investigated cogs and gears and created smaller pictures and panels as well. The Year 6s created technical drawings of cogs, some of which interlinked.


This was all exhibited at the BIG Draw Exhibition in the Hall. Thank you to all those that came and left such lovely comments in our visitors book. Below are a selection of the comments.
