    Refugee Week

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    As part of Refugee week, year 5 (and year 6) discussed many aspects of refugees. We talked a lot about the issues the refugees face, and looked at some case studies, to develop empathy and understanding. The children gave some great responses, and we had a fascinating discussion. We also discussed the fabulous work of the Red Cross.

    NSPCC Stay safe, speak out

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 5 and 6 were extremely lucky to have Tim from the NSPCC to talk to us about the stay safe, speak out campaign. The children learned a lot about ways they can stay safe, and finding adults they trust to speak to. The children discussed scenarios and came up with brilliant ideas. Many thanks to the NSPCC and Tim.

    Year 5's have enjoyed swimming for the first two weeks in school. They have enjoyed some excellent team work with some relays and spent time practising front crawl. Like to take this opportunity to thank the parent/grandparent supporters that allow us to conduct swimming lessons.Thank you very much!

    Children in the whole school were introduced to a new topic ... all about colour. Children were introduced to the book, "The day the crayons quit," during assembly and a buzz shot through the school. We will be working on a range of things from Mathematics to Art, focusing on colour. Look out for further information.
