The Race to Make Mr. Potato Head continues…

The results so far are very close with 4 classes all having 6 pieces each, and the other classes not far behind. This could be a close run race! Make sure you are all in school everyday for your class to be in with a chance to win!


RE assembly – “Welcome”

Thank you to everyone who came to or contributed to our lovely assembly this morning. Children from all classes were proud to show what they had been learning about Baptism and Confirmation. We are looking forward to learning about Islam next week, which will end in another special assembly next Friday. Do come and join us!


Fantastic Families Assembly!

Last Friday we enjoyed a wonderful “Show and tell” assembly to mark the end of our RE topic, “Families”. Each class shared what they had been learning in a creative way, and it was wonderful that so many of our families came to celebrate with us! Thank you to all who came and to all the children and staff for their lovely contributions.


Year 4 trip to Moel Famau

Before half term, year 4 visited Moel Famau in Wales. We had a fantastic day walking the mountain and the weather was beautiful and sunny. We all tried our best and encouraged each other to get to the top. Along the way, we used our map reading skills from Geography to help us. It was so much fun that we are planning another walking trip!


Drama in English

In English, we have started a new book called The Frog Prince Continued. To help us with our writing, we used drama and role play to act out one of the scenes where the princess was disgusted with the frog prince.

DT workshop

Today we invited our parents in to help us with our pneumatics project. We’ve spent some time planning and drafting our ideas and finally got the chance to start putting our plans together. Everyone has worked really hard on making at least one part of our product move using air pressure.

Thank you to the parents that were able to make it, you were a huge help!

Last term we spent six weeks developing our gymnastics skills with Mr. Lowry in PE. We learnt a lot of new skills including shoulder stands, backward roll, leaps and jumps. Each week these skills got a bit more difficult and by the end we were creating our own floor routines using different apparatus. Check out the pictures.

Science outside the classroom

On Friday we took full advantage of the great weather as we went outside with a group of visitors to learn about different Science topics. We were split into small groups and got to learn about how our shadows change due to the movement of the Sun, different habitats and plants that are in our garden. Our visitors were very surprised at how good our Science knowledge was and we had great fun carrying out different investigations.
