Please send all lip dub clips to us via Facebook messenger - Stuart Erskine or Asling Hobbs as we are having some technical issues retrieving them from our emails.

If you are having problems finding us on Facebook please email to let us know.


As a little leaving memento, we would like to create a P7 Lip dub. To do this, we are going to use the song by S Club 7 - Reach (your parents will know this one) - the words seem quite appropriate in these uncertain times. I need you to film yourself singing the song (with lots of expression and actions). You won't actually be singing, you just pretend your singing. I want you to use this opportunity when you're at home to be creative and try and make your video stand out.
I would love to have some kind of contribution from EVERY child. To make this a little easier for you and so you don't have to sing the whole song, I have split the song lyrics up for different groups of children. You only have to send me the video for your bit. Click on the link below for an idea of what you could do.

I need all video clips emailed to me by Wednesday 17th June - 

P7 AH: When the world, leaves you feeling blue
You can count on me, I will be there for you
  When it seems, all your hopes and dreams
Are a million miles away, I will reassure you

EVERYONE: We've got to all stick together
Good friends are there for each other
TEACHERS: Never, ever forget that I got you
And you got me so

EVERYONE:Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
  Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
 Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true

P7 SE: There's a place, waiting just for you
It's a special place, where your dreams all come true
Fly away, swim the ocean blue
Drive that open road, leave the past behind you

P7 AH GIRLS:  Don't stop, gotta keep moving
P7 AH BOYS   Your hopes, gotta keep building
P7SE GIRLS   Never, ever forget that I got you
P7SE BOYS  And you got me so

EVERYONE: Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true

P7 AH: I said reach
Climb every mountain
Reach for the moon
P7 SE : Reach
Follow that rainbow
And your dreams will all come true

EVERYONE: Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbows shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true

There are loads of other tutorials on line so have a look - please contact us if you need more support with this. Make sure you save your work regularly and play around with the tools to see what you can create.

Basic Powerpoint tutorial

Choose a few of the activities below to have a go at this week. You don't have to do them all!! Choose things that interest you.

Ideas for DT projects you could try:

  • Design and make a seed dispenser that drops only one seed at a time.
  • Design and make a scarecrow that moves. (you could include a circuit with a buzzer, motor or bulbs lighting up.)
  • Design and make a potato grader.
  • Design and make a hen house with an egg-catching device and comfort for the chickens.
  • Design and make a humane slug trap.
  • Design and make a humane mousetrap.
  • Design and make a farm vehicle using an axle.


Eggs - we use them to bake cakes, for a quick breakfast or lunch. They are so versatile! Can you think of the different ways we use eggs?

What is the difference between free rage and battery hens? Investigate and present your finidings. You could make a poster/ powerpoint/ write a report .... the choice is yours.


Think about how farming has changed over the years. Compare and contrast life on a farm today  to 100 years ago. What have been the major changes? How have these changed made farming easier? Are there some things that have not changed? why?



Have a go at some of these egg experiments yourself - can you explain what happens and why?

Egg Experiments

Growing seeds

What do seeds/ plants need ot grow? Have you planted something during lockdown? Create an information sheet explaining to a younger child what they need to do to plant and grow some seeds. You could take photos of the process and show how quickly they grow! You could plant a few seeds and give one water and one no water, one light and one no light - make a prediction and record what happens.


Kitchen Scraps

Did you know you can grow vegetables/ herbs from kitchen scraps?! Check out this link How to grow vegetables from kitchen scraps Give it a go and let us know what happens! You could measure the growth and create a graph.


We are looking forward to seeing what you decided to work on! Please make sure you send us some of your work and if you need anything contact us on our email or
