Our KFC treat!


6B completed the 5p challenge and so we spent some of our winnings on a KFC dinner treat! I’m sure you can see how excited they all are! Let’s see who the second class is to win £50 for a class treat! (All other money goes towards the London fund).

 

Crucial crew!

We have had a fabulous time at crucial crew today and we’ve learnt lots of vital lessons! The children are excited to share the lessons they have learnt with you!

Amazing collaboration in English

Yesterday, year 6 created descriptions of their chosen creature from Disney’s Pandora! Here they are using model descriptions and photos to inspire their work! I am really impressed with their vocabulary choices and I am so excited to continue with this writing!

Attendance winners in KS2

We are the KS2 attendance winners this week meaning we have £10 in our class attendance pot! Thank you to parents/carers for supporting us and to 6B for coming to school every day this week! Let’s hope we win again next week and build that money up!

Peer critiquing in literacy


6B have worked so hard this morning during their peer critique session. They carefully identified the features they had used against the RUBRIC and gave each other next steps to be able to achieve their required step.
I am so proud of you all 6B and your newspaper reports are sounding awesome!


Year 5 and 6 would again like to invite you to our Space themed Family Learning Day Thursday 6th February 1.30pm until 3.00pm.

We have some amazing and potentially messy activities your children would love to share with you!

Explore the Nasa Website and a Space web search. (Please make sure your child has completed the new school ICT agreement).

Were looking forward to making sharing some great activities with you all again!

National Space Centre

We have just returned from an inspirational visit to the National Space Centre as part of our Space Expedition.

The visit was an excellent opportunity for the children of year 5 and 6 to explore and find out about Space; including what it is like to be an astronaut, how stars form and the different planets within our solar system. The children were engaged from the minute they arrived, exploring the different exhibits. Then they discovered how the rockets, which are exploring space today, work. It was definitely an exciting, explosive show.
The highlight of the day however, was visiting the fantastic full-dome 360 degree planetarium. Here the children had the opportunity to explore outer space. They were guided by a presenter through the solar system, visiting each planet in turn to find out interesting facts such as ‘Planet Uranus was originally called George in honour of King George III’. All the children had a brilliant day; it really helped to bring our Expedition to life. They have come back to school excited to continue finding out about space and life beyond planet Earth.

I’d like to say a big thanks to all staff and parents for making the day memorable.

We are on our way home!

We are on our way home from a fantastic day out at the National space centre. I am unbelievably proud of each and every child today as their behaviour has been fantastic! The children have learnt so much and can’t wait to share their experiences with their parents and carers tonight.
We are aiming to be home for twenty past four, please can we ask parents to not park directly outside of the school at our time of arrival to allow our driver to park safely.
