Last week, The York Stars presented the NHS-funded “See Life in Colour” assembly to Years 3 – 6 and a follow-up workshop with Year 6. The project has been specifically designed to help KS2 pupils to understand age-appropriate mental health issues and explore a range of positive approaches to actively promote wellbeing.
Year 3 had a great time making buns in their food technology lesson!

Years 3 & 4
As part of our study of Mexico, the children undertook a blind chocolate tasting to see if cost and brand really mattered. It seemed for our Y3s and Y4s it did, as the cheapest, supermarket product was deemed the least tasty with Galaxy chocolate taking first place.
Whilst this was going on, we finished painting and decorating our pinatas with some very impressive designs.
This week, Japan!
Year 4 looked at cave paintings and studied subjects chosen by prehistoric people. They then drew their own parietal art, using natural resources such as chalk and charcoal, whilst lying under tables to give them a feeling of how cave people actually painted.
Year 5 collecting seeds with their socks! Part of our science topic on plants. They then prepared their vegetable stew to cook on an open fire, it was very tasty!
