Iron Man Poem

The Iron Man stood on a mountain top

Staring down an enormous drop.


His head was huge, his eyes were bright.

He made the most amazing sight.

Eyes like searchlights scanned the hill,

Ears were icy in the chill.


Where is his master, nobody knows,

There on the mountain the iron man froze.

An icy wind blew full of snow,

And swept him off to plunge below.


Falling, falling . . . flung about

No one there to hear him shout.


Suddenly, an awful crash,

Bang, wallop, crunch, pow, smash.


Battered, scattered, tattered Iron Man lay,

In the ice and snow all day.

Slowly the pieces came together,

Even in the frightful weather.

07.04.20 Bake Off Small and Savoury edition! 


Here on some scrumdiddlyumptious entries from our Stanton Bake Off, lovely Mrs Rimmer included!



This week I set the children the challenge of investigating shape and patter of shadows and how the change with the angle of which light is shone at an object. Here is what they found:



'a shadow is formed by light shining on one side of an object but the object is blocking the other side so the light waves cant get to it.'


'when you move away the shadow gets small. when you get closer the shadow gets bigger. when you move to the side the shadow gets longer.'


'When I moved the light closer it got fatter and when I moved further away it got thinner. When I moved the light up it got shorter and down it got longer. When I moved the light right the shadow moved left and when l moved the light left the shadow moved right.'


'As I moved the torch away from the object the shadow became dimmer. As I moved the light towards the object the shadow grew darker. As I moved the light to the left the shadow moved to the right. As I moved the light to the right the shadow moved to the left. As I moved the light upwards the shadow became shorter and as I moved the light down the shadow became longer'

Sikhs provide an open space and kitchen to offer food after worship for people in need. This is the Juniors trying some Dahl Curry from the Gurdwaras kitchen.

Hindu Temple

In the Hindu temple worshipers ring the bell to make others aware that they are entering. Men and women sit together on the floor to worship side by side; in a gurdwara it is optional for women to cover their heads.  


During our spring term we have learning all about the ‘Blue Abyss’, as part of this topic we had a visit from Severn Trent to tell us about the process of cleaning and recycling water.
