Mess and fun everywhere!

Thanks to all the parents and carers that attended the family learning in Year 5/6. It was very messy but loads of fun! The slime proved to be a challenge and didn’t always turn out correctly. It was fun for the children to share the mums and dads who attended. Maison enjoyed the quiz and his mum did get one question wrong he would like to point out!!

Thanks again to everyone!

The end is in sight!

Just to let all parents and carers know that next week [5th Feb] is our last swimming lesson. It has been great to see your children grow in confidence and become better swimmers. We have been quite lucky as most children remembered their kit and we lost no items of clothing!

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.

Water water everywhere!

All the children really enjoyed the swimming safety experience today. All trunks and costumes were present and correct! No doubt they will sleep well tonight as I could see them getting tired with the effort it took to swim in their clothes. Well done year 5. Remember next week is the last session for us.
