Craft Day with Mr Stroud!
Banksy class had a whole day making fairground models. Firstly we made working circuits using, bulbs, buzzers and motors, discovering different conductors of electricity.

Our classes this year, are named after famous artists.
Banksy is a pseudonymous United Kingdom-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director and painter. His satirical street art combines dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stenciling technique. His artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls and bridges of cities throughout the world.
We have been looking at some of Banksy's work and discussed his themes and messages.
The children stay in the same class for two years, so we work on a two year cycle for the curriculum. This ensures that children do not repeat a year.
