Conker Battles22-10-2018 | 14:33:12 | No Comments

Today we have had a cracking time in Forest Schools! Working as a team we finished our strings, drilled our conkers and prepared to do battle. Everyone followed the rules and battled valiantly to see if their conker was the toughest of the lot. It was a great way to finish our first half-term’s sessions.

A big thank you to Mrs Salt who came in and read to our class yesterday. We enjoyed your reading of ‘The Football Boy Wonder’ and it had a lovely message as we followed Charlie Fry trying to overcome his difficulties. Many thanks 🙂

Englesea Brook17-10-2018 | 14:52:57 | 1 Comment

Yesterday, Year 5 enjoyed a trip to Englesea Brook as part of their Victorian topic. They learned about the contributions Victorians made to Christmas traditions by making a Christmas cracker, used an Atlas printing press to see how books were printed and played Victorian street games. However the highlight of the trip was going back in time and becoming a child attending Victorian Sunday school. The children represented themselves and the school beautifully and really gained insight into the life of a Victorian child. 

Bridge Building Parent Morning11-10-2018 | 15:48:27 | No Comments

Yesterday, Year 5 enjoyed their parent activity morning by building bridges inspired by the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Working in teams, the children had to design and build their own bridge (working within a budget) capable of holding 5 toy cars even in stormy conditions! Everyone had lots of fun and we had lots of highly successful bridges too. Thank you to everyone who came along to support the children. Also well done to Team Victoria who won the overall competition!

Year 5 represented themselves beautifully today at Moorside when we visited their Science department. The children had lots of fun learning about the gases that make up the air we breathe. We even got to see ‘elephant toothpaste!’

Orienteering in Year 502-10-2018 | 07:06:33 | No Comments

This week, working in pairs the children had to write routes for their friends to navigate to find an animal that they had hidden somewhere within the school grounds. Some routes were easier than others to follow but we didn’t lose any children or animals in the end. Well done Year 5!
