Magna Mayhem…

Time Travellers!

Class 5 had a fantastic day travelling back through time to the ‘Swinging Sixties’.  We were able to experience what it was like to live in the 1960 and had the chance to model the clothing, listen to a range of music using the jukebox, explore lifestyle changes and even ‘launch’ a space rocket!

Rotherham Power

Our aim is that Rotherham’s children, young people and adults are able to participate online and have the wisdom to make wise choices, empowering them to be resilient and have the responsibility for their own behaviour.

We love the internet and it’s important that we all know how to behave online. We love technology and our lives seem permanently connected in one way or another nowadays. We should embrace this, but it can be hard with so many negative stories in the news about risks, dangers, online bullying and radicalisation

It is so important that we are able to manage our online activity in a safe way. This website will provide information and links to resources that will enable us to enjoy the internet but keep oursleves safe from any of the dangers.

The Big Blast

The children in Year Five have been learning Brass Instruments all year. On Monday they went to Magna as part of the children’s festival to play their Brass Instruments with many other schools in Rotherham.

The children performed several tunes and they really enjoyed the experience of playing as part of a big group

Year 3 went to Rother Valley Country Park to learn about rivers.

First the children walked around the lake.  Then they  completed a river studies workshop before exploring the rest of the park.

Picture This

All the children have been working on art work for this years theme for ‘Picture This’  based around the artwork of Children’s Games by Pieter Bruegel.

Flemish painter, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, painted “Children’s Games” in 1560. The painting provides a window into amusements and recreations in the past in its detailed depiction of some 200 children engaged in nearly eighty different games and play activities.

The children used this picture as a stimulus to produce their own pieces of art work depicting children’s games.

Some of the children’s work has been chosen to go to the ‘Picture This’ Exhibition which is taking place at Magna.
