We had a fantastic day today celebrating World book day. We all came dressed up as characters from some of our favourite British authors. 
We spent the day completing lots of exciting book related tasks and even had to find our way out of a locked library! 

Take a look at some of our amazing costumes below.


The Year 5's went to Sherburn High School to take part in a Science investigation day. The children took part in a task where they had to identify who had stolen the missing Sherbie prize. There was a variety of steps to ensure they found the culprit, including: Science forensic lessons, Maths, Geography and DT. 
They all had a brilliant day. 

Take a look at our photos.

As part of the school's launch of Thrive, our parents were invited into our class to take part in some thrive-inpsired activities. We had a skills sharing session, where children with a musical talent shared their knowledge and understanding to the members of the class and parents. Other activities included: making dream catchers, mindfulness colouring and emotions jenga. 
We finished off the day with positive comments on each others' backs. 

21.12.18 Year 5/6 showcased their musical talents to Miss Town this afternoon as they played three well known christmas songs. This term the children have learnt to play the viola or violin. What a brilliant way to end the Autumn term. Well done Year 5/6. 




Our class really enjoyed reading with our buddies. The Year One's chose one of their favourite books to share, and we can't wait until we get to read with them again.

As part of our landing for this term's topic of 'Land of the Free', we designed, made and evaluated our very own cookies. We used inspiration from American-style biscuits and participated in a taste test. We had a lot of fun in the cooking room baking our cookies, we then shared them with our friends so that they could evaluate our creations. 

We had a lot of fun sharing all of our work from this term with you in our class assembly. We have all thoroughly enjoyed learning about America. 

Congratulations to the children in year 6 on passing their level 1 and 2 Bikeability course. The course included the children learning how to perform emergency stops, use correct hand signals to show their intentions to other road users, turning left/right onto major and minor roads and how to pass parked cars safely. The children really enjoyed the course and can now enjoy riding their bikes safely on the roads.

The children in Milestone 3 had an amazing, creative day performing, “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman”. We chose which performance area we would like to focus on: dancing, singing or playing instruments. We spent the morning practising our routines and learnt a variety of skills. In the afternoon, we came together to practice our ensemble before performing for the children in Milestone2. We were very proud of our performance and the audience enjoyed the show.


The children and staff had a fabulous week at Colomendy, Mold Wales. We completed a range of activities including: abseiling, climbing, fire lighting, aerial walkway, high ropes, 3G swing, caving, buggy building, archery, nightline and initiative tasks. The children challenged themselves and surprised us with their bravery and tenacity. Throughout the week, the children were impeccably behaved and were a real credit to the school. Well done Year 6, we are sure your parents have enjoyed hearing your stories!

On the second of our two transition days we have focused on learning around our first topic, Land of the Free. We used the iPads to complete a QR Code Hunt around the school grounds to find out about the different US States. We will be using the information we found out to create non-chronological reports when we return in September. 

The Year 5/6 class have been identifying the work of Edgar Degas. They learnt that Degas was an impressionist who drew, painted and sculpted dancers. 
The class used this is as inspiration to create their own ballerinas. They researched ballet dance positions and used tinfoil to create the stance. The children discovered that if they use felt pen on filter paper and then add droplets of water, it will create an effect similar to that of Degas' work. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our work.
