Today, an ambitious team of UKS2 children travelled to Langdon Park to complete in a Poplar Parliament competition. They listened to the talk from Rhiannon Evans, a representative of the London Air Ambulance charity, before designing and presenting a tool to improve road safety.

The OLSJ team came up with a smart watch – the Eye Watch – that has lots of built-in features to prevent accidents and assist the emergency services. After presenting their designs to the judges, Year 7 representatives and other Poplar schools, they were announced the winners!

OLSJ are the Poplar Parliament winners!

Cooking scones in Year 5!

On Wednesday, the children recapped their D&T designs to make scones! First, we discussed some important rules for food safety and hygiene before looking in detail at the components of the recipe. Next, the children made scones by hand by mixing and kneading all of the different ingredients. In the afternoon, they ate their finished scones with the options of jam and cream and tidied up after themselves. 

Viking immersion day

For their second day back, Year 5 spent the day immersing themselves in their new topic – the Vikings. First, we were introduced to the vikings and then wrote secret messages using runes. Later, we learnt about all of the viking gods and explained which one was our favourite as well as designing our own shields!

Zones of Regulation

In PSHCE this week, we learnt about the Zones of Regulation. We discussed how, as people, we all go through a range of different emotions. We talked about what each of the zones might look like, before creating our own charts with strategies that we can use when we find ourselves overwhelmed.
