Today some of the Year 5 and 6 children took part in a STEM workshop. The children were looking at strong structures and worked in groups to design and build their own.

We have added some photographs which show the children concentrating while making a plan and also some of the finished structures.

Year 5 Orienteering at Longford Hall

On 20th October, the year 5 children walked to Longford Hall to take part in an orienteering competition organised by Haberdasher Adams.

As you can see from the photographs, they had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Roman Guthrie and Adam Powell Laybourn were the winners – completing both courses in the fastest time.

Well done everyone!

Farewell Year 6!

The Year 6 Prom was a great success! I have added a few photographs to Twitter and there are some more below. Some of them (I will let you guess which ones!) have been censored and don’t appear!

Thanks for a lovely evening , thanks to everyone who organised it and enjoy the summer holidays.

Base 1’s Morning – Maths and Science

In Base 1 today the children were looking at planets and the distance between them. The Maths part was ratio and proportion and the Science part was how the planets were organised and how far away from each other they were. The topic at the moment is Space, so children learned an element of each subject this morning in one lesson.

The children used toilet paper to show a scaled-down version of how far the planets of the solar system are from the sun. If the Sun was by the zebra crossing at the front of school, Mercury would be six sheets of toilet paper away from it and Neptune would be all the way round to the exit gate!
