Year 5 had an interesting visitor from a beekeeper today! Mrs Brown told us all the bees she keeps and about the different jobs bees have within a hive. We realised how special and clever they are! We even tasted some honey which was delicious!
This week we have had our hall transformed into the most amazing Art Gallery.
Every child contributed two pieces to the collection, consisting of a 2D creation and a 3D creation. I think we can all agree that the children have excelled themselves and should be very proud.
Thank you to all of the parents and family who came to share our children’s wonderful work.
Here is Under the Sea by our EYFS pupils, signed in British Sign Language:
“I visited your Art Gallery and was so impressed with the work the children had produced. The video of Early Years really made me smile, and it was a lovely experience to watch it underneath the tentacles of the jellyfish. I absolutely loved the Lilies by Year 5, they were so impactful. And Year 2’s designer plates would grace any table! Well done to all of the children for their hard work, and to the staff for putting on such a lovely display.” Amanda Hayward (Governor)
Here are some photographs of the event:
Year 5 had an amazing time at the [email protected] Word learning about robotics! We made different moving models with Lego WeDo2 and loved exploring Sphero’s features.
Year 5 did an amazing job of telling everyone all about their visit to London. Well done!
Hola! This week we Year Five had a brilliant time learning about Mexico in Geography. We found out about the physical Geography and climates within Mexico and demonstrated our knowledge by presenting a weather forecast. One of our highlights of the week was creating a Mexican dance, The National Mexican Hat Dance. To end our week we looked at Mexican celebrations and focused on Día de Muertos. We loved finding out about the Mexican traditions and we have started to make our own decorations.
We can’t wait to find out more about this fascinating country!
