Science Dome for Year 3 - posted 1st Apr

The Science Dome came to Year 3 once again, to support our learning about fossils, dinosaurs and volcanoes. The children experienced a fantastic hands-on fossil workshop, including a ¼ scale T-Rex skull and fossilised dinosaur poo!! After that it was into the digital science dome for a 3600 view of space and a 3D film, exploring the time of the dinosaurs. After creating some Margaret Godfrey inspired volcano collages, it was back into the Science Dome to find out how the dinosaurs were wiped out and then watch another amazing film – Super volcanoes.

Cross Country Event - posted 8th Mar

On Friday 8th March the whole school took to the field for our cross country running event.  Children were competing for points for their house team.  The races were split into boys and girls, with the upper school children running an extra lap of the field.  The children all had a fantastic sporting attitude, cheering each other on and helping each other out on the course. 
The house captains and prefects were superb assistants in helping Miss Stevens.  Congratulations to the winners in each year group: Ava Hammond, Fin Naylor, Tamaya McFarlane, Rozwin Rana, Kirsten Mutyaba, Jamie Peters, Sabrina Sharma and Sagar Gurung.  A big well done to the winning house, Waterloo!

World Book Day - posted 7th Mar

World book day has been a fabulous success. The children came bounding into school today in their pyjamas and a bedtime story. Every child and teacher shared their stories throughout the day and the children showed a love of reading. Reading is such a vital skill for life and we are so proud of our children for showing such enthusiasm for books. 
The children will be receiving their book tokens tomorrow which they can use on a world book day book or as money towards another book of their choice.

Little Troopers - posted 4th Mar

We were really lucky to have Little Troopers run at our school for 6 weeks by the Army welfare team. The after school club was a mix of fun physical activities and lots of learning about service life. The children identified different aspects of being in the army and the roles required. They challenged themselves physically and learnt the importance of being physically fit!  It was lovely to see so many service and non- service children take part!
Hopefully we will run the club again with another year group!

On Tuesday 25th February, Year 4 visited Butser Ancient Farm to support our learning about the Romans and how they used to live. We had a very exciting day filled with activities, including: spinning thread from sheep’s wool; making mosaics from tiles; exploring the inside of a replica Roman house and of a Roundhouse; making Roman jewellery from wire; and embarking on an archaeological dig to find hidden clues about Roman Britain! We had so much fun completing the activities in the beautiful sunshine.

Year 5 DT day. - posted 25th Feb

We had the most amazing day making circuit based quiz boards. We learned all about how electrical circuits work and the components needed within them. As it was the beginning of our new topic, we had to research our space theme and questions. We then created cards for our questions and answers. Once we had assembled our circuit, we added our questions and wired the answers to match, this meant that when the player correctly answered a question a buzzer sounded. During the afternoon we had the opportunity to test each others games and evaluate our own based on our peers’ feedback.
