On Wednesday 3rd April 2019 Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a fantastic day visiting the Mansfield Jamee Masjid Mosque in the morning followed by Mansfield Museum in the afternoon. We had an amazing morning learning so much about the Islam religion - including listening to the beautiful call to prayer and having all our many questions being answered - we even got some yummy cake! During the afternoon, Geoff at the Museum organised lots of fun trails and activities for us to take part in to explore the museum - including us earning points and prizes! A huge thank you to all the staff at both the mosque and the museum for a truly excellent day.

On Wednesday 14th November we took part in Anti-Bullying Day 2018. We came to school dressed to represent our unique individuality; discussed and took part in silent debates in the afternoon covering a wide range of anti-bullying questions as well as designing the perfect friend. Thank you to Mrs Davies for teaching us. 
During the week commencing 5th November we had a wonderful World War 1 week. During the week we: read and wrote WW1 poetry; listened to interviews; watched war footage; learnt about life in the trenches; wrote letters home from the trenches and designed and made our own propaganda posters. The week ended with a fantastic visit to New Cross Church for a remembrance service and to place the final school wreath. Thank you to all the children for showing such great respect at the church and thank you again to all the adults who accompanied us. 

I have one word ... WOW! Your space creative homework projects have been absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD! From rockets to cakes to solar system models to raps to PowerPoints and animations - you did it all! 

A huge well done to each and every one of you for your AMAZING EFFORTS! Thank you so much to all of the parents and family members who came to view our projects - I hope you enjoyed them too!
