Homework Exhibition

 

During Parent's evening on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th March, children's homework projects were displayed in the Middle Hall. 

 

Year 2 created iconic London buildings including a spinning London Eye!  Year 3 made their own inventions and created 'The Journey of Food'. 

 

Year 4  were given the homework title, 'The Future', children worked together to create their own human sized time machine with lights inside.

 

We hope you enjoyed seeing how hard the children have been working on their homework projects and we thank you for your support at home.
