Last week, Year 5 have had a fabulous day at Haberdashers’ Adams where they took part in a STEAM workshop (science, technology, engineering, art and maths). The task for the day was to construct a rollercoaster for a marble out of art straws and card. The children worked in groups exploring structures and shapes for strength before working on their rollercoaster. There was a huge focus on team work and exploring ideas throughout the day. They all did fantastically well and created some amazing structures.

Newport Show

Every year the school takes part in the Newport Show by having a small stand and also by growing some potatoes to enter in the school competition.

Representatives from the Show came for “The Great Potato Dig Up” .

The children were very excited to see how they had grown. The representative from the Show said that our potatoes looked good!

Sadly they weren’t quite good enough to win – we came fifth. Newport Girls High school won the top prize. We share a site with the Girls High and Mr Bussey joked “perhaps they had better weather!”

Year 6 Alton Towers Trip

The Year 6 children and staff went to Alton Towers last week. The weather stayed kind and they all had a brilliant time.

It is great to be able to continue with all our traditions once again and the Year 6 children are now looking forward to Leaving Performances, a Leaving Lunch and their prom which has been organised by a group of parents.

It all sounds lots of fun!
