Year 5/6 became archaeologists today (as part of family learning) and took part in a dig. They had to find the pieces of a Neolithic jug and then put it back together which proved to be quite challenging – the children were very resilient! They all earned their archaeologist award and can now go on to dig up more fossils and artefacts! Some also continued with our cave paintings by adding their hand prints directly on to our cave walls in the classroom.
Thank you to all of the parents who supported our family learning and came to join in with the fun!
A heart warming trip to some of our local residential homes this week (Adeline house and Bennfield House). The choir did a fantastic job spreading festive cheer and judging by the smiling faces they helped make some peoples Christmas a very special one. The residents loved chatting to the children about Christmas and loved joining in with singing and dancing too:)
Year 5 and 6 have worked incredibly hard this term learning all about the rainforests. To celebrate their learning they have produced a fantastic re-usable calendar which will be on sale for all to buy! Our calendars will be sold at our celebration event on 18th December 2018 at 5pm. Calendars will be £7.50 to buy – a real bargain!
We hope to see you there!

A big well done from me to the choir and all the effort they put in rehearsing for the Christmas light switch on. A lovely little video here (thank you Miss Knowles) and thank you to all of the support from parents, friends and family. Feeling very festive now!
What an amazing trip year 5 had this week at Tropical world and Roundhay park. The children had an insight into the environment of a rainforest. They explored their senses and were able to use this to describe the atmosphere. They have since written some very impressive descriptive writing.
