World Book Day

Look who came to say hello.


We spent time discovering about the Aztecs as a civilisation, what they did and what they are famous for. As a class we then had a choice to create a range of Aztec inspired art. Amazing.

World War II Theme Day.


On Tuesday 12th November, we had an amazing time reimagining a day in the life of children during World War Two. We experienced air raid sirens, looked at propaganda posters, shared a meal together, supported each other, created a timeline of events throughout the war and took part in some military drills. Amazing day!

Science Day 2019


We had such an amazing time in Cheetahs for our science day. In the morning we investigated the amount of sugar in drinks, actively worked out the circulatory system including the chambers of the heart and oxygenated / deoxygenated blood followed by carrying out an investigation into the effect of exercise on mental health and well-being. In the afternoon we rotated round in a year 5/6 team and did experiments such as: tornado in a jar, exploding bags or unpoppable bubbles. Amazing!
