Rocktopus - March 2024

A very exciting day across the whole school. Year 4 and 5 got together to create a song about the 6 times tables. Their rhyming skills were very impressive! You children have been sent home with a QR code which you can scan to watch them in action! 


Year 5 Bikeability - January 2024

Well done to the children in Year 5 who completed their Bikeability courses this week, in the seasonally cold weather!

Clare and Amy from Somerset Road Safety, who led the courses commented:

'enthusiastic groups, lovely to see their confidence grow, they enjoyed being out of school on their bikes learning about the road environment. Thank you to the school for making the Bikeability team feel welcome. Professional support so the children got the most from the courses. We look forward to working with you all next time!'

The children who took part also commented:

'I would have never learned this anywhere else' - Bethanie

'I would love to do this again' - Evie P

'I love it' - Evie W

'Interesting, helps learn the roads, signs and what they mean' - Amelia

'Helps me know how to communicate with drivers' - Alfie

'Feel more confident riding my bike' - Alana

Our very grateful, and HUGE THANKS go to Mrs Edmends and Mrs Zeffiretti for assisting the groups, and of course to Clare and Amy from Somerset Road Safety, who provided the children with these invaluable lessons to stay safe while cycling on the roads.

We are delighted to confirm that we have secured two further courses this year for Year 5, and further details will be sent out to parents/carers in April regarding this.

Science - Testing Parachutes! 

In Year 5, we have been exploring difference forces. This week, we have been looking at air resistance. We designed our own parachutes and Mr McCall put them to the test, dropping them from the roof of our school!

Poetry Performance to Parents - 24th March

On Friday, we invited parents in to an afternoon of performance poetry.  Kingfisher performed our initial poem The Fruits of the Jelebi Tree (1969) using actions and different voice tone and sound.  Then the children performed their own poems to the adults who visited and each other.


DT Day - Modroc-ing all over the world! - 24th March

On Friday, we started to build our sculptures, these sculptures were based around the sculptures we had seen around the UK, including The Angel of the North and The Willow Man.  We used a wooden structure, newspaper to pad out the shape and modroc to get a smooth even coat - we will continue to build and paint these over the next week.
