Year 5 Raps

Thank you to all those who came out in the pouring rain to hear our class raps.

Whenever you have time, please help us make sure all Year 5 children can read a clock to the minute, understand am and pm and the 24 hour clock.

Happy Christmas and see you rested and ready in the New Year.

Year 6 Science Trip

Year 6 had a wonderful fun filled, science experience at Winchester Science Centre. We explored many areas of the hands on science exhibits before taking a trip around space in the planetarium. Next, we headed to the Computer lab where we proved our fantastic coding skills to code our festive robots. Finally, more time was spent exploring the space section on the centre and discovering yet more science facts. A great learning opportunity for us, all which really brought our science learning alive!


Year 5 – lovely leaves!

Looking for something beautiful to brighten up a wall?

Look no further than our delicate, dynamic tropical leaves.

We have used pencil sketching skills, chalk pastel blending and colour mixing skills to produce these tropical treasures.

Who would have thought we only had white, black, yellow and blue pastels?

Hot tip: make room for our next project – space themed art showing off toning skills!


Safety Day 2018

On Friday 28th September we held our annual Safety Day in school. The children enjoyed the activities designed to raise their awareness of ways they can keep themselves safe. All the year groups discussed what to do in and emergency, how to call for help and stranger danger. Then Year 3 learned about Road Safety, Year 4 looked at how they can stay safe at the beach, Year 5 learned about Fire Safety and actions to take in the case of a fire and Year 6 talked about Fireworks and how to make sure the Firework code is followed.
