Year 5-6 Girls Football

Well done to the Year 5-6 girls footballers who had an amazing tournament winning 2 of their 3 games. A special well done to Holly who got the respect school games badge.

Maths Week

Year 6 enjoyed taking part in our 'Maths in the workplace' themed week. We created geometric patterns as part of our ongoing RE work. This was displayed in a presentation in the hall with other examples from the rest of the school. We had parent visitors in during the week sharing how they use maths in their careers. We have focused on budgeting skills thinking about how we can get the best deals as a business person. 

Birdman experience

On Tuesday 5th November we had a visit from the 'Birdman' Alan Ames. He brought in some amazing birds of prey and told us lots of interesting facts about how each one has adapted to be the perfect predator. 


During Maths Week England, each child from every class produced a piece of Maths related artwork.  The children really enjoyed being creative with Maths and the results were fantastic! On Thursday, the Hall was transformed into an Art Gallery for the children to visit. A selection of work was exhibited from each class which included shape garlands, shape rockets, symmetrical patterns, arrays, tessellations, optical illusions and geometric designs.  There were some interesting conversations in the "Gallery" where the children discussed their favourite works of art! 

Outdoor Learning Day

All of the children had a great time during Outdoor Learning Day. The children in Year 3,4, 5 and 6 learnt a lot from the RSPB workshops. Year 1 and 2 produced some fantastic artwork from the leaves that they collected.  Well done everyone!

Visit to Rayner Stephens High School

On Wednesday a group of Year 6 went to the new opening of 'The next chapter' which is a new resource centre at Rayner Stephens. The children enjoyed their morning and had the chance to look around the library.
